2008 Astra XR
Default Re: Astra buying advice wanted

If the car is in outstanding condition, and you can verify it's been taken care of, then maybe I'd buy it.

But my Astra - bought new and maintained perfectly - recently needed a serious repair that involved GM Engineers and an agreement to pay half - so it only cost me $1000 out of pocket. (I'm greatly displeased with that, for the record.)

Rear brakes needed to be done, too, and that was $300. At 73,000 miles.

You asked, and my recent experiences say to be cautious... But it's been a great car, and I'm not completely soured. Yet.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
