Quickest Diesel In This Class — quickest diesel in its class the performance is fantastic for an oil burner0-60 in around 8 secs and limited at top end to 140 mph sport button adds a little more grunt especially in six gear on the motorway the build quality is quite good considering its a vauxhall the handling is great even into tight bends at high speed it looks great and creates lots of fun only downside is pricey when new

Pros: 150 bhp 55mpg

Cons: badge

My Cool Astra — Fastest car i could but for my money. Looks great wit the 18" alloys, full sport package and leather seats. I get bout 35 to the gallon, so too bad but i do hav a lead right foot so could probably get a bit more if driving carefully. Did want the VRX version but just outta my price range - will start saving now!

Pros: Looks

Cons: Not quite fast enough

Great Car, Good For All Age Ranges — My car is amazing! comforts great, good fun to drive. torque amount promotes excitement out of corners and overtaking. build quality is top with an amazing engine, shame about it being built by fiat buit what ever. appearance is good the new astra is a big leap from older models.mpg is very good especially when on motorways, however isnt afraid to burn a lot of diesel when foot is down.

Pros: good power, good build quality, looks good

Cons: understears a lot due to front wheel drive and torque figures.

Astra Sri Sporty Looking — The Astra SRi 1.8 was a good car with 130 bhp to give reasonable performance to go with its sporty 3 door looks. Mine also had blinging 18" wheels! Service interval was around 18k miles on my driving so reasonable costs but it did have a water pump problem that was sorted under warranty. Rear space less than my Focus & Golf but good boot.

Pros: Coupe-like style, good performance, reasonable running costs

Cons: Water pump issue

Best Car I've Driven So Far! —

Vauxhall are definitely on to a winner with this one, their advertising slogan "fall in love with driving again" is very appropriate for it. I went for the "Elite" spec with the 1.6 engine as I prefer comfort over speed and I definitely made the right choice. I have all the electrical gizmo's you could possibly think of (except a sun roof, but who needs that when you have climate control?) and the beige leather interior is really lush. Having said that the seats are freezing when you first get in on a cold day, but they are heated and you'll be comfortable after a couple of minutes! I'm pleasantly surprised by the fuel economy I'm getting from it - over 400 miles to the tank on journeys of mostly 2-3 miles at a time! Love the stereo too, it has a DAB radio and 6 disc dash-mounted CD changer and it's 7 speakers are bloody loud!!!, best of all there is very little distortion when you crank it up :) My only quarrel with the stereo is that the controls on the centre console are a bit fiddly, but the steering wheel controls are ok and make up for this. I have no gripes with the performance either. While it's definitely not the fastest car I've ever driven it is probably the best handling and I feel really confident with it. Can't fault the safety features either - the ABS & EBA have saved me from having a nasty accident on a couple of occasions so far!

Pros: Excellent value for money, it feels like a much more expensive car than it actually is!

Cons: The stereo controls are a bit difficult to figure out - but that's about all I'd say is wrong with it!
