1999 Vauxhall Astra SRi 16 valve 2.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
Great to drive and great to own
Interior trim was flimsy and I dislodged some of the trim in the boot when loading it with a push chair.
CD unit on stereo failed after 46,000 miles.
Ignition failed after 54,000 miles and had to be replaced at a high cost.
A bit flimsy, but generally very reliable. Also gave high levels of comfort and was a joy to drive.
Good value when I bought it for £9,000 after 3 years. Sold it 2 years later for £5,000 because I wanted something with four doors.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
