“Mine is a '93 1.4i club estate, i've had it nigh on...”

Written on: 01/05/2009

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 when… Read Full Review

I found this review very helpful because I've got one too and it's incredibly economical on a run. I've been getting 41plus mpg and for an L reg banger I find that incredible!

“Don't buy a Vauxhall. Even the new shape Astra Estates...”

Written on: 19/05/2006 by JaniePortugal (16 reviews written)

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 Full Review

I agree that the 1.4 16v is awfully slow for a 1.4, and have driven the same engine in the Corsa, it just defies sense that it should be like this. I just dread to think how the 1.4 8v goes...

My Vauxhall Astra 1.4 is nippy, easy to drive and cheap to run under the new tax regs.,
Cheap to service, typical reliable Vauxhall - my fifth and running exceptionally well despite its grand age of 9yrs+… Read Full Review

Glad to hear that there are some other genuinely happy drivers of this particular car - it is a joy to own and drive!
Easy to maintain, less expensive to service and tax, pop it thru the car wash and it looks as new.
The usual 'hit' from Vauxhall!

I can agree that it is a joy to have one of these cars, but you can hardly describe it as nippy in any sense...

“My Vauxhall Astra 1.4 is a brilliant car - mine is a...”

Written on: 31/07/2002 by Evs1. (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Brilliant then - sounds just like my Astra Club!
<br>I wouldn't change mine for the world - well maybe just the black Merc SLK55 with two twin exhausts I saw today - dream on!

“It's full of extras, a good looking car and it feels...”

Written on: 20/10/2001 by AstraF. (1 review written)

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… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/06/2003

I have never had any under-performance from any area of this particular Vauxhall - really reliable, trustworthy, inexpensive to run/service/tax - typically VAUXHALL - one of the few manufacturers to have decent service centers, too.
<br>12 out of 12 for the car, from the Scottish judge/jury and 'nil points' to this reviewer!

1.4, no poke?? don't agree, My 1.4 astra estate is fab, very FAST when needed, even when full to the brim (2 adults 3 kids plus dog)
Took it to france last year fully laden and pulling a 5ft trailer, also packed... the car was brilliant......
