2008 Vauxhall Astra SRi 1.7 CTDi turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Sporty and Sexy!
Nothing at all!
Love the Astra SRi 1.7 (100bhp), in the 3 door the car is a class act!
I also have the 18" alloys fitted and that really adds to the drive.
When the Astra advert used to say "Put the fun back into driving" they weren't kidding.
The fuel consumption can be a bit of a joke (38-39 mpg), but I think that may be because of the way I drive. In my defense: this car loves to be thrapped, it's not as fun to drive "gently".
If you decide to get one, get the colour "Silver Lightning", it's a blue/silver and hides the dirt really well and looks sportier than the black!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It's a diesel, that's why.

I got the 1.9 diesel, and it has been nothing but PROBLEMS!
Spent almost as much on repairs as I did on the car in the first place.
Would never buy another Vauxhall :(
