2001 Vauxhall Astra LS 1.7 DTi turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
A very reliable and economical vehicle
New alternator required at 90,000.
Several sets of wiper blades.
New cam belt (maintenance) at 100,000.
Extremely reliable, economical, and comfortable car. Not so hot on performance, but 600 miles to a tank of fuel and starts first time every time. Good visibility all round, and I have now done 78,000 trouble free miles.
I would highly recommend this car as a family work horse. Unlike the wife, she is reliable and cheap to keep.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
