2001 Chevrolet Astra 2.0 gasoline
I'd have another one if I was to buy a mid-size car (or compact, by US standards)
The "lambda sensor", which controls gas emission started malfunctioning when the car had around 40000Km. The symptom is the yellow alert lamp on the console turning on from time to time. No hope in replacing it. After some time it starts turning on again... I gave up replacing it as there's no visible impact.
The car is great for it's category. Good engine (could be a bit more economic), good gearbox, elegant design and very stable, specially on highways.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
