This is my second mk 2, 1.3 astra now and i really do think they are sound reliable cars. having 125000 miles on the clock when i brought around a year ago it has now done 136000. The only thing which went wrong was the cambelt breaking whick didnt cause any problems as af the safe engine design. the only worrying thing is how hot they both got when in small traffic jams. although never letting me down i will not complain… Read Full Review

I got my Astra 1.3 to do 125mph on a flat without too many complaints. Most reliable old car I've seen; quick, loud, cheap, fun, safe, economic etc.

I've got an Astra GTE 16v and i can honestly say it is the quickest car i have ever been in.
I have a power boost valve added, K&N air filter, and an ecotect valve. My car does 0-60 in 6.7secs, and 1/4 mile in 14.6secs. Top speed of 143mph! There must be around 170-180 bhp! QUALITY!!!!!

hi, i'm a little confused people on this website have told me that an astra 1.3 will reach 120mph but ive been doing some research into the astra gte mk2 and it seems by what ive been told that the astra gte isn't quite as good performance wise,ive looked up some stats for the gte and they told me that the gte will only reach a sucsessfull top speed of 104mph! but surely a 2ltr astra can do better than that someone please reply im confused!
