1999 Vauxhall Astra SXi 1.6 16v from UK and Ireland
A cheap, good performance, Low reliability car
Right where do I start?
December 2002: Camshaft leakage, cost £175 to fix.
January: a very loud rattling noise coming somewhere from the exhaust system.
Both front window brackets are starting to go.
March: Front Left lower balljoint is going.
May 2003: I have an MOT, and the above needs to be fixed, I greatly fear the cost.
Well, for a 1.6 litre, this car is pretty quick!
Alhough it maybe quick, I am selling this car within the next few months due to very poor reliability.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
