GM Holden has taken the unprecedented step of suspending imports of its second best selling car the Opel-made Astra, sighting issues with currency fluctuations and commodity price issues.

The move means that no Holden-badged Astras will be imported in April or May and the decision could become permanent, depending on a company review of the situation.
Holden’s senior spokesman, Scott Whiffin, told CarAdvice, “The Astra range is currently under strategic review because of unfavourable exchange rate movements and commodity price increases.”

What a shame, especially considering that the Astra is much better than the other small Korean shitboxes that they call Holdens.

Faillllllll the new Astra was going to be the only good small car they had to fight the other companys with and the other guys all have good ones at the moment. Sounds like they ran out of money to buy them with ?

This is sad, i always loved the little 4 door SRI hatches , always was and would have been a toss between that and the commodore when buying a new car, not anymore. . . but then you also have to wonder how long will the commodore as we know it live on . . .
