Holden Astra AH Petrol (Vauxhall Opel) 2004 2008 Haynes Service Repair Manual

About the Holden Astra

The Holden Astra serves as a compact car that has been marketed by Holden, the Australian subsidiary of General Motors. Spanning five generations, the very first, Australia-only Astra of nineteen eighty four was a derivative belonging to the locally-produced Nissan Pulsar, as was the 1987 Astra. It was pretty succeeded by the Holden Nova in 1989-another unique to Australia model line, Holden in 1995 reintroduced the Astra used for the New Zealand market. I thought this was merely a badge engineering exercise, even though the Opel Astra, from which the third steps generation Holden Astra was based, was in fact sold there since nineteen ninty three. The next year, 1996, Holden discontinued the Nova line towards the Opel-based Holden Astra. This strategy may perhaps be in place since that time, with fourth and fifth generations launched in 1998 and 2004 respectively. During August 2009 Holden discontinued the Astra and replaced it while using the Cruze, released two months prior.

Third generation (TR; 1995-1998): In 1995, Holden began selling the Astra again belonging to the New Zealand market as a four-door sedan and five-door hatchback. Imported from Vauxhall's Ellesmere Port plant in Cheshire, England, this third-generation Astra model referred to as the TR series, was derived with all the Opel Astra F in Germany; Opel being another General Motors subsidiary. However, this was merely a rebadging belonging to the existing Opel model that has been marketed in New Zealand since 1993 as you move the Opel Astra. Holden in Australia did not recommence the selling of Astras until 1996, as soon as dissolution of Australian Government Button car plan. This resulted from inside the collapse of UAAI, the Holden-Toyota alliance, and as result Holden opted revisit marketing rebadged General Motors vehicles. Between 1989 and 1996, the Astra's role was fulfilled by way of Nova, Holden's version of Toyota's Corolla (E90 and E100). During this time period of badge engineering in Australia, General Motors New Zealand had used Opel among its main marques alongside Holden and Isuzu. For the reason that Button plan or local equivalent never existed in New Zealand, the 2 main initial generations of Holden Astra (LB/LC and LD) were thus never for sale in that market. Exactly like the two previous generations, TR Astras were assessed in a very 2008 Used Car Safety Ratings, and shown to give you an "average" level of protection.
