Many Vauxhall Astra owners are still paying extortionate dealer prices for their repairs, not realising how quickly and easily they can knock lots off the cost of keeping their Vauxhall Astra on the road. This becomes even more important with older models, where the price of parts and repairs represent a much bigger proportion of the vehicles worth. The continued popularity of this model over several decades means that Vauxhall Astra parts and spares are readily available.
A Longstanding Success
The Astra has been sold in the UK since 1979, although for the first 12 months it was called the Kadett D, and for many years was the main alternative to the best selling Ford. There has been six generations in total, with the latest one starting in 2010. The Astra has always been a popular car with the UK Police force, and the motorway Police also used its bigger sibling.
A Current Hit
The Mk 6 of the Vauxhall Astra has enjoyed high sales figures in the UK. The styling of the new design takes a lot of inspiration from the popular Vauxhall Insignia. An estate model followed twelve months after the release of the hatchback, and the ever-popular SRI variant has also proved popular amongst Astra fans. The Mk 6 is also used as Top Gears Reasonably Priced Car that gets thrashed by a different celebrity every week.
