2007 Vauxhall Astra SXI (115) 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Reliable, stylish motoring
After I purchasing car, noticed slight clutch judder, mainly when the car was cold. As a goodwill gesture, main dealer changed it for free, wasn't covered under manufacturer's warranty.
No other problems.
The 1.6 vvt engine is an improvement on previous 100 bhp 1.6 engine & better fuel economy.
Good mpg when driven sensibly, 43mpg (mixed driving).
Plenty of power to overtake.
Smooth gearbox & nice interior on the SXI model.
Decent grip when cornering, due to up rated SXI suspension.
Nice solidly built reliable family car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
Review Date: 9th April, 2010
I have had my Astra SXi Coupe 2007 from new. Stylish car and looks the part. However, problems so far have been fan on heater having to be replaced in March 2008, then heater motor went all together November 2010 and had to be replaced. Now the boot will not open with my fob. Would not have another Vauxhall now.
