Holden Astra 2009 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Astra 2009 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Astra sounding rough
It's always hard when you know there's a problem, but it's never present when there's a mechanic with you. It's hard to diagnose when you can't hear it for yourself, so keep notes on when it occurs and anything you observe that might give the mechanic a clue. Things like, does it do it on cold starts, under acceleration, slowing down, at idle. Even better, record it on your smart phone so you replay it for the mechanic the next time you take it in.
New heater motor needed after only four years
This is a difficult one; there is no right or wrong answer. The car is four years old, and things do go wrong, even on cars that have only done a few kilometres. I can sympathise with you and generally I believe that components like the heater motor in your case should last longer than they sometimes do, but cars are machines and they don't always go smoothly. I would recommend that you contact Holden's Customer Assistance Service and lodge a claim for compensation. In the normal course of events I would expect them to offer you, at best, part compensation.
Astra airbag sensor light fault
Get it checked to make sure it is a sensor and not a problem with the airbags. It would be horrible to find out the hard way that there was a problem with the airbags. Before you can start claiming against Holden you need to establish what the problem is. Perhaps it is something that Holden should fix, but you won't know until you find out what's actually wrong.
Holden Astra warped rotors
That she got 80,000 km out of a set of rotors is good going, so I wouldn't be concerned that they needed replacing. If you wanted to check that they were actually replaced you could measure the thickness and compare it to a new rotor. As for who pays, it depends on how long it has been since the service. If it's only recent then you stand a chance of having the dealer pay, if you've let it slide for a while before reporting it there's no chance the dealer will cover it.
