    help

    going to look at a car tomoro. it's a astra g 1.8 sri on a 51 plate. but it's got 121.000 mile on the clock. and the stone chips to prove it.

    so what are the ecotec engines good for. you can be sure it's spent it's life on the motorway.

    mine had 108k on it (1.8 ) on an x reg. Was told it was all motorway miles, though it was an ex company car so servicing had been done regulary and it had a new clutch fitted at around 90k. only thing that went wrong with in the year and half i owned it, was the coil pack went faulty the day i picked it up

    so if it has been looked after shouldn't be any problems with it.

    check the cambelt has been replaced. my guess is that it may not considering its due now! every 40k . expect 150-250 for cambelt and all associated parts. may be something else to barter with.
    good luck!
