1999 Vauxhall Astra Sport 1.8 16v from UK and Ireland
Hot hatch performance, family car value
The day after I purchased the car I had to take it back to get the engine management computer reset as the car kept cutting out on me.
New brake calipers required on the back wheels as they were faulty.
All work done under Network Q warranty.
Well what a quick little pocket rocket this car really is. Group 7 insurance for this sort of performance is amazing value for money.
0-60 8.5 seconds top speed 127 MPH(claimed)
Solid build quality and excellent road handling all add up to make this car worth considering.
Much improved over the older style astra
Watch and laugh as cars come up behind you and see that you only have a 1.8 engine, and then put your foot down and leave them standing!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
