Summary:

Surprised by the car

Faults:

Radio.

Light bulbs ;o)

General Comments:

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)

I agree with this fine gentleman, I beleive that Astra is the pride of OPEL s older models. I would gladly drive the latest model, but unfortunately I cannot afford it.
