1996 Vauxhall Astra LS 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Good long runner
Recently the car has had problems starting; it keeps cutting out, and if sitting with the engine running, then it either revs up to 3 (me not touching any thing!), or it will cut out. If it cuts out, then I have to rev quite hard, and the smell of petrol is extremely strong.
Today after cutting out and once started, the oil pressure light came on - until I got my manual out and saw I should switch my engine off straight away. I only have problems in and around town.
The car is spacious, quite comfy, and is a great long drive runner.
I would buy this type of car again, as I guess all cars run their course.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
