    astra vxr at 19

    What are the running costs on these beasts?

    I do about 250-300 miles a week..

    Tax? Tyres? Servicing? Reliability?


    I wanted a sport hatch cdti 150 xp but found that i could get a vxr for about 2 grand less..

    Thanks,
    Aaron

    Id be more worried about the insurance first. Get a few quotes as id say that would be the deciding factor.

    Tax: £220 per 12 months at the moment
    Tyres: Mine have lasted 11k since I got the car and are still going strong
    Servicing: £180 ish through Vauxhall
    Reliability: Very good! Had my 07 plate for 1 year with 21k and its been perfect (touch wood)
    Petrol: I get 300-320 miles out of a tank. Cost to fill up around £45 for Tesco's 99ron

    Buy one with Full Vauxhall Services History, the newer the better so you have manufactour warranty remaining. Shop around so you can get a good one!

    If your happy to pay that much for insurance why would you worry about running costs?

    Is that driving sensibly? Or a bit of both?

    If you are capable of handling the car then by all means get one however as mentioned about, if you're questioning running costs then it's obviously not the car for you.
