Holden Astra 2002: Is it reliable?
EVERY kilometre you drive is one closer to a major meltdown. That's the reality of owning any ageing car, not just an Astra. It's impossible to predict when that might happen. The reality is your car's best days are behind it. Should you sell? It's impossible to say. It doesn't matter what the badge is on the bonnet, your car is six years old, so you should expect a few problems. Your upgrade option is four years old, and though the Subaru is a good brand and the Impreza a good model, it is also getting on. I would press on with the Astra, or trade it in on a new car.
Subaru Impreza 2004: Air conditioning rumble
I'M NOT convinced Subaru would have failed to gas the airconditioning before delivery, but I could believe the system had a leak. The rumbling sounds as if the compressor has been damaged after the gas leaked. The refrigerant keeps the compressor lubricated so when the gas runs out, the compressor bearings can be damaged. I would demand the compressor be replaced if it is still noisy and have the dealer check the system for leaks. As for the noise being normal, your dealer is spinning you a line.
