2001 Holden Astra from Australia and New Zealand
Nice car while running well
Air conditioning packed up before 70000 km.
Thermostat unit replaced at 130000 km, in an effort to diagnose a problem with the revs staying high on gear changes. Didn't solve the problem, and now the emission light remains on, and there's a flat spot on acceleration, which is very frustrating.
Further investigation is ongoing; have been told it's maybe the car's computer? $$$$
The car had ran reasonably well until now, but have found it to be costly overall. When problems occur, it usually proves to be expensive.
The car bodywork remains in good condition, and is the only saving grace, preventing me from scrapping the car!!
So will hopefully get the current problem solved, and will get rid.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
