Disadvantages: Agricultural noise, depreciation, not fun like a Focus or Golf.

Vauxhall Astra 1.7CDTi 2010- Context and car reviewed Unlike many of my reviews, this car does not come as one that is owned or has been owned by the family for any period of time. I have spent a day with a 2010 1.7CDTi I believe in Exclus ...

2004 Astra 1.7 CDTi Sxi (Closest Category Found!)

Advantages: Space age looks (New Model 2004) Great Engine. Quality interior. Equipment

Beat the Chancellor (but not the boy racer)!

Advantages: Reliable, Extremely economical, practical and functional. ECO4, Low CO2 emissions
Disadvantages: Slow, slow, not so quick, slow! Plus what is that under the bonnet, a sewing machine?

I have run this car from new, supplied in May 2003, by the organisation I work for. Now covered 35k miles. I did expect it to be a decent car to drive as I was used to the old model Isusu engined 1.7 turbo diesel. Having spent 100k miles in that. A b ...
