I actually quite like the look of Mokkas, especially the facelift. I can't comment on their capability, suitability, value for money etc and the chances of my buying a new one are absolute zero but they look alright for a modern, chunky hatch.

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

I hire cars quite regularly (well I normally drive a Land Rover) it is a very long time since I have been offered a Vauxhall, usually it's a Nissan, so around here they seem to miss out on the hire market. My sister-in-law had a Corsa and was very happy with it as it was small and easy to park. (She has no interest in cars) My nephew borrowed it when he started work, as a free car he was happy, but bought himself a Golf. A colleague wants a newish car I suggested an Astra and she wouldn't contemplate it. All the ones I've driven and been in seemed ok, but somehow they are now deeply unpopular.

That's the thing, the Astra is okay.

Not great, not wow, not where do I sign?

Just okay

If they were comfortable they'd be ok.
In all my years of company astras and Vectras I've never understood how someone could walk into a showroom,sit in one and go "yeah, this is comfy, where do I sign "
Most of the other guys in the company thought so too.
We all did serious mileage, FTP's were very rare. Still, nobody liked them and certainly wouldn't part with their own money for one.

Enterprise have Vauxhalls

 

Astras are decent enough. Mokkas are orrible but they can usually offer a Captur instead which is better

Another example of PSA consolidation - this South London Robins & Day Peugeot dealership seems to have had a Citroen franchise hurriedly tacked on:

How long before they will be selling Vauxhalls too?
