2002 Vauxhall Astra Club 16v from UK and Ireland
Reliablity at a reasonable cost
This is the 4th Astra we have owned and I feel the 16v is the best yet.
We require a car without any large repair bills and with reliability
We travel to southern France 3 or 4 times a year, and the car performs very well on the auto-routes.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Have owned my 1.6L 16V Club from new since March 2003, and agree with all the comments above. Have owned five Vauxhall Astras from new since the mid-80s, and between them only ever had one breakdown on the road.
Serviced the current one annually on the dot at the local Vauxhall franchise, and never had any worries until last year (2009) when I had a problem with the air con. I took it to a specialist garage for repair, and they commented on the poor standard of servicing it had received, so I now go to a small local garage recommended by a friend.
