No problems so far.
The Holden Astra is a dream on open road. It flies over hills, definitely has got the magic. Not that good in 50k areas; this was built for speed :-)
Manual gearbox, that second gear just takes off (yummy). 120k feels like 100k, so have to watch my speed a little. Can usually keep up with the Holden Commodores, which isn't bad for an Opel motor.
Overall, a comfortable small to medium car. It took a little while to get used to the gearing (I'm used to Japanese cars).
Good on gas.
Solid body (built in Germany), and the seats aren't that hard to sit in either.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
