    Usual rag story, based on how many surveys?

    I havent had a survey to fill in, and its all on satisfaction, satisfaction of what exactly!

    I've not filled in a survey. I'm perfectly happy with my Astra. As per usual the facts and only the facts... Good old Sun.

    Law of percentages would show that there are more unhappy vauxhall astra drivers than there are skoda octavia drivers as there are more vauxhall astras on the road.

    Going by that information, it appears that owners of 2004 Mk4 astras seem happier than the owner of a car of the previous year. This does seem strange, but I'm happy enough with mine. I think thats what matters!

    Lemon of the year - the Pug 206. Oddly enough, it's also the best selling car in Europe. Go figure.

    If the Astra is so bad how come so many are sold? In the top selling car lists every months for the past 20-odd years.

    If that's the JD powers survey, then it takes into account service provided by dealers - which is where virtually all the big volume manufacturers fall down every time.

    The police in Northampton are still using Astra G's as panda cars. I think they are slowly retiring them now tho.

    The Sun are morons lol. How many of the average buyers could easily afford one of those top ten cars? Skoda, Toyota and maybe Daihatsu (I know nothing about those), yes.
    But the rest of the list are expensive, high end cars.

    Why the hell isn't Citroen on the list!
    At the end of the day it's all about personal opinion that's why these surverys about car manufacturers are just crap.
