I have had my Astra for 2 years now. It has always been a pleasure to drive. In SF it fits in all the small spaces, yet holds a ton of stuff. If GM can build cars like these in the states I will definitely look at them when I am choosing my next car ( I have had hondas and mazdas for the last 20 years) so good job on the Astra! A few minor quirks that were repaired at the dealer when I got the car was the only reason it did not get a 10 on reliability.
Fun to drive and what a sun roof! It is also really fun to look at (I get lots of compliments on it when people see it).
better cup holders and ipod jack. Completely fold down back seats. Although more engine choices would have been nice this one is peppy, responsive on the hills and nice on the fuel efficiency.
