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.

Written on: 03/02/2005 by deankelk (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 31/10/2004 by neonpirate (1 review written)

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 Full Review

“Can't really give this 1.4l Vauxhall Astra Mk2 car a...”

Written on: 05/05/2002 by SpikeTech2K. (1 review written)

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 only… Read Full Review

Mate, it ain't got a granny image, it's true. Leave that to the metro's and rovers, this car has good road respect for all ages as it can be modded for cheap prices ;)

Written on: 28/03/2002 by Mike. (1 review written)

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 Full Review

What you say about the mark 2 it wrong. My mark 2 Astra (1.4 Carb) has done 150000 miles with no major service. It has never broken down (touch wood), and has had 2 attempted thefts, but neither were succsessful. The only problem is the choke on the carb - it doesn't work, but it will still start on the first turn of the key every time. Oh, yeah, it does go through oil, but at 50mpg, I don't mind.

Nice review but I had a 1990 G reg mk 3 which I got at 8 years old with only 40 thousand miles on it, and a full history ,I had it for 3 years and not one thing ever went wrong, but surprise surprise it was stolen a year ago and has never been found.

I'm sure for you the astra mark 2 was a good reliable car but for me it simply wasn't. I had a never ending string of problems with mine. Then when i finally got through them it was stolen (twice). I now own a renault 19 and have had very few problems with it. My advice leave old vauxhalls well alone. They are unreliable and far too easy to steal.
