Is a used Vauxhall Astra hatchback reliable?
It depends upon whether you go for a diesel or a petrol powered Astra. According to our most recent What Car? Reliability Survey, the Astra finished in a disappointing 19th place out of 24 cars in the class of 31 family cars. Vauxhall as a brand fared worse than rivals such as Seat, Skoda and Ford, ranking in 27th out of 31 in the same survey.
