I am a big fan of my Vauxhall Astra Mk2 1.4, I have a 1.8 sri, a 1.3 and a 1.4 amoungst other Vauxhalls. I brought my 1.3 for £50 pounds 5 years ago with no tax or mot. It has passed all mot's since, with no or little work, and is a cracking little car, the best value for money, nippey, and never let me down.
rock solid motor.. they dont make them like this anymore! (read more)

Anyone got any ideas???????? (read more)

This Vauxhall Astra Mk2 1.4L Family Car is the only car that has ever been sweet to me. When I had an xr2 I had no end of problems with it, I have since owned 2 mk2 1.4 astras and dont think I will leave it until the 2.2 calibra lump goes in and sort the rattles and road noise. (50kgs worth of dynamat) along with my koni adjustables - THIS IS A CRACKING MOTOR FROM ALL ASPECTES. (read more)

My mark 2 Vauxhall Astra Mk2 1.4L started life as a family car... then I got my hands on it, off came the rear door handles, the rust, the steel wheels, air filter, rear seats, door cards etc. In went two 12s a 2.8kW amp 6x9s front components and cd player... Fully GTE'd now and its cost me next to nothing apart from time and patience and ocasionally persuasion from my friend Mr 14pound hammer. Great car, how many other G reg 1.4's will do 120mph after only £100's worth of bits... sheer... (read more)

Can't really give this 1.4l Vauxhall Astra Mk2 car a bad word at all. Apart from it's a bumpy rattly ride, it's been the best £500 I've spent... ever! I looked around at other cars and found I couldnt get but a quarter of the options and comfort as the astra. As for reliability, every old car I've owned/driven is usually falling apart, you just have to look for one that's been looked after, the one I own has been through 2 MOTs now with nothing more than a wiper blade needing changing. My... (read more)

I bought this Vauxhall Astra Mk2 1.4l car to replace my (very) run down Ford fiesta and discovered that well that was a mistake!!!
Sure for the size of car the engine was good and strong(when of course it didn't break down). It had a very strange habit of stalling for no apparent reason when simply sitting idling at a junction or lifting off the accelerator. It was very difficult to start in the mornings & enjoyed pumping it's oil through the cylinders & out the exhaust on that start. The... (read more)
