1996 Opel Astra 1.6i petrol
Fantastic car. Had oil pressure issues, and has had a cabin leak in the front, which still eludes me; I was told she would needed to be stripped and thoroughly checked.
Fantastic car, besides the oil pressure problem, serviced her once, and had no problems since. Light on fuel. Will miss her when I get a later model... Have grown quite attached to the old girl.
The car handles well, with my Pirelli Pzero 17 inch alloys, hugs the road like a go cart. Slower to pick up speed in the lower gears; 4th gear terrible, 5th gear is awesome.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
