2002 Holden Astra Review
The Black Mamba — The Black Mamba is a great little chick car. Great fuel economy & easy to drive, very zippy! Has had it's problems - Interior's a bit average & the brakes have squealed ever since it's last Holden Warranty service at 50 000km. The biggest pain in the butt was the ignition barrel seizing up & having to get a locksmith to fix. Still gets a bit sticky from time to time but the locksmith left me with a magic key!! She's starting to show her age now but she's mine & I love her!
Pros: Grunty sedan
Cons: squealy brakes; crap upholstery
