1994 Opel Astra wagon 1.6
Surprised by the car
Light bulbs ;o)
Bought this car only to go camping and thought to sell it after that.
Very good, comfortable and reliable car.
So far I had zero problems with it. Drives nice, very good fuel consumption on open road 100km - 5.6 to 7 liters depending how I drive not that good in city around 9 to 10 liters.
Very spacious (it's station wagon ;o), comfortable and with relatively good power. After really long trips I'm not too tired but I think seats are a bit hard for my taste.
1.6 ecotec engine surprised me. I thought that because the car is heavy 1.6 won't be good for overtaking but I was wrong. On highway top speed I had is 180 km but fuel consumption is terrible.
Only big minus for the car is lack of aircondition.
Overall I am so so pleased with this car that I decided to by new Opel Vectra.
(when I say I'm pleased with the car it is understatement. I'm delighted, car never ever had even one problem. Just sit and drive)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
