    Would you buy it?

    Hi, im new to this site.
    I went to look for a astra today at a place called cargiants.

    I saw the astra 1.8 SRI everything was fine till i got in the car. It had a sticker saying that the mileage is not accurate! We spoke to the dealer and they said its nothing bad, its just that they are not 100% sure what the mileage is!

    They also dont have a history book. Would you still buy this car?

    Im from london and i tried seaching at cauxhall dealers, but i dont think they have the 1.8 SRI. only 2.2 SRI or 1.6 SXI

    Are the SXI any good?
    Sry, im still a little noob! ><

    welcome to the site,
    no i wouldn't be touching that car, there are loads of astras for sale at the mo becuase there getting on in years and the newer model is out, find one with a full service history and you should be fine.

    i have a 1.6sxi and its a fine wee car, little slow but it does the job nicely.

    Thanks guys ^^

    I really want the 1.8 SRi.
    Looked at it and thought it was the one to get.

    Do you guys have any site you could recommend me?
    Even official vauxhall dealer is fine, i dont mind paying a little more to be safe.

    Plenty of people selling their cars on here at the moment as well.

    Lack of service history shouldn`t be too much of a worry but if they`re saying the millege isn`t correct then something aint right there.

    Good luck and Welcome to A/S.

    Are they saying it's not correct or that they can't guarantee it's correct??
