1994 Vauxhall Astra Merit 1.4 from UK and Ireland
Good for a 1.4
Alternator on the way out and it's starting to show signs of rust on the rear arches.
For a small 1.4 this car's performance is not that bad, and it does have a slightly sporty feel to it while it's being driven. Handling is moderate.
With a few small extras it can look very sporty, especially the 3 door, and it has one of the best looking insides I've have seen on a car. Loads of space front and back.
If you are going to buy one I would strongly recommend a 1.4 multipoint injection one or a 1.4 16v or above.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
