Mine is a '93 1.4i club estate, i've had it nigh on four years now and to be honest, i can't fault it for the service it's given me. As a painter and decorator the car's been loaded up to the hilt with mine and my work mates painting gear and also all his woodworking stuff, and that ain't light, and the little car has never missed a beat. It's probabaly had three maybe four oil changes while with and i've never serviced it properly, just the occaisional set of plugs and air filter. Even... (read more)

Don't buy a Vauxhall. Even the new shape Astra Estates have that cheap nasty looking interiors.The interior is very plastic, colour scheme leaves alot to be desired. It is so slow, you can't depend on it to get you out of trouble( if you need to dodge someone pulling out on you) if you need to overtake someone on a motorway you need to give them a months warning! I dread to think how slow an emergency brake would be. Horrible..hate it. (read more)

My Vauxhall Astra 1.4 is a brilliant car - mine is a 1993 'Club' Estate, with the 1.4 engine (there were two and mine is the 'perky' one - even the salesman talked me out of the 1.6, at 'new' purchase!)
Now over 83,000 miles, the only time it has let me down is the fan belt shredding!
It still looks and drives superbly! (read more)

It's full of extras, a good looking car and it feels very safe even at high speeds...it is asking to be pushed to its limits...BUT...a 1.4 it is 1.4 (oh yeah?) and its a pity if you'll buy it with this engine...90 dead horses....(like i did). I suggest that evrybody, even your grand mum , should have the 1.6 engine on it...DRIVE FAST... its against traffic jams.....(that was a joke ,ok?)..this car is at least for the 1.6 engine,dont forget that with all these extras it weights over 1.100 kilos.
