    Astra SRi Turbo

    My mate has 1, he very rarely uses it !! weekends only. Just wondering what kinda problems he will experience with it lying that long, not been used properly etc ?

    Back brakes stick on when he is reversing sometimes :roll:

    My GSi has been in my garage for a week, and she'll be fine wihout moving. Going to be another week or so before she moves again anyway.

    Modern engines will cope fine

    I only use mine once or twice a fortnight and I've had no problems, I've been told to drive easy for the first few miles but that's common sense I suppose.
