1995 Vauxhall Astra LS 1.7 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Economical family car that looks good too
Slipping alternator belt in wet/cold weather.
Diesel return grommet on the cylinder head breaks down and leaks fuel into the engine bay.
Really bad misting of front screen in wet/damp weather. You cannot see out-- it's very dangerous.
Front indicator lenses cracked due to proximity of the bonnet.
Some dash lights not working.
It's a good car to drive, a bit sluggish to pull away, very economical.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
