HOLDEN ASTRA Used Car Review

Pros

Cons

  • Competent ride and handling. Fast and fun VXR hot-hatch.
  • Good turbo petrol engines
  • Sedan's spacious cabin; hatch's practical boot
  • BK generation (late 2016) brought more upmarket cabin
  • Latest sedan misses some of hatch's safety tech
  • Lack of rear vents on some models
  • AH Astra (2004-2010) not as satisfying to drive as predecessor or successors

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: HOLDEN ASTRA (2004-2010)

Dodgy electricals are a real Astra biggie. So check the operation of everything from the air-conditioning to the hazard flashers.

Both the 1.8-litre and turbo-diesel engines needed new timing belts every 60,000km. The water pump and pulleys should also have been changed at the same time. Many owners didn't bother. Water pumps can fail and lead to overheating.

The diesel engine can develop a build-up of soot in the intake manifold, blocking the swirl valves and leading to poor fuel economy and performance. In some cases the whole manifold needed replacement.

Automatic transmissions use an external cooler that can fail, allowing coolant into the gearbox. Any milkiness in the transmission fluid suggests this is the case but damage will already be done.

Astras can also leak oil and this is often the precursor to the engine starting a downward condition spiral. Work out where the car is parked overnight and check for oil spots.
