We've updated our reliability stats for the ASTRA to include owner experiences through September 30, 2014.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2008 ASTRA: 47, low

We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

2008 ASTRA: 70, < 1

To view the repairs behind these numbers, check the stats for other cars, and sign up to help improve this information (next update in February):

You're welcome!

We've again updated our reliability stats for the ASTRA, this time to include owner experiences through the end of 2014. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2008 ASTRA: 48, low

We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

2008 ASTRA: 65, 2

We'll have further updates in May and in August. More members have been selling than buying these, so additional participants would be very helpful.

Any chance you'll provide stats on the 2009's? I've been contributing for about 5 years now...how many more owners do you need to publish stats on this model year?

Should probably just combine the data it was essentally the same car from year to year right?

Thanks for asking about the 2009s--I'd forgotten about this wrinkle myself. We already combine model years for the Astra. 2009s are included in the 2008 stat. We have only a few of them, but over 100 of the 2008s (though many members have been replacing them). More always helpful.

Our reliability stats for the ASTRA now cover the year ending June 30, 2015.

Repair trips per 100 cars:

2008 ASTRA: 49, low

We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

2008 ASTRA: 68, < 1

2008 Astra XR
Thumbs Up Re: Saturn ASTRA reliability (please sign up if you own one)

Got one of these earlier this week.

This is Saturn #3 for me. I had 2 S-Series' in the past. I just came upon this one too - originally, I was looking for a Honda. This one is 53k, manual, silver, 3 door...CDC40. I am digging it so far.

InSP light is on though. I was reading in the manual about that - sounds like I will have call the dealer tomorrow.

Took it out on come country Oregon roads today though. It is super peppy and fun to drive. It sounds very nice, as well. This will be fun to take to the coast.

I will now cruise the threads for some links to good cup holders and cell phone cradles.

INSP is not the check engine light.. Rather it is just the oil life monitor. The instructions to reset it are incorrect in the manual so chances are they never did it after their oil changes. CHeck the astra section for the proper instructions.

We've updated our reliability stats for the ASTRA to include owner experiences through the end of 2015, about eight months ahead of other sources. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year--lower is better:

2008 ASTRA: 48, low

We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

2008 ASTRA: 65, 2

We'll have further updates in May and in August. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.

This is not a reply but a new posting re. Astra. My Astra (Manual Tran.) whirrs when shifting. Could be a bad throw-out bearing?
