Vauxhall Astra


Vauxhall Astra is a favorite among the police forces and taxi fleets around the world, the Vauxhall Astra is a reliable work horse of a car whose models include the Coupe DTM and XTreme (Astra F), Twin Top, OPC and HSV VXR (Astra G), as well as Astra H and J.

("Astra" literally means "star," and comes from the the Greek word, "aster"; other English words derived from this root word include asteroid, astronomy and astronaut).

Much more common, of course, are the Vauxhall Astras that haul everyday people around as a popular and dependable mid-sized family car. Those everyday people care about road safety, fuel efficiency and costs, tyre tread wear and costs, and the footprint that today's society is leaving on our planet, especially on its fragile atmosphere.

Adhering to the recommended tyre pressure for the Vauxhall Astra, as well as Vauxhall Corsa and the Zafira enhances road safety, optimizes fuel efficiency and tire tread wear, lowers fuel and tire costs, and helps protect earth's atmosphere by minimizing carbon dioxide emissions.

The people who can facilitate this adherence are at the parent company of General Motors, which owns Vauxhall, and which also markets the Astra under other names in other parts of the world, including as the Buick Excelle in China and Chevrolet Astra or Vectra in South America.
To urge them to adopt better tyre pressure monitoring and maintenance technology for their cars (Vauxhall also makes the Meriva and Insignia under the umbrella of GM), please click here.
