Default Re: Do You Have A New 5 Door Astra? Does It Have Press Dents?

Maybe this chrome trim is an indication of a better finnish on the Saturn Astra - I think a Chrome trim is a feature of the more expensive models here in the UK.

Anyway, my new doors have been fitted now and they are free of dents - unfortunately I can see a slight difference in the existing door pillars, compared to the new ones. I've updated my website with the latest information.

I intend to keep the website going, because even though Vauxhall have now admitted that there was a problem with the manufacturing process, and have rectified it. I think there must be lots of Astras on the road and on dealer's premises with this problem, so buyers need to be careful.
