    I had one of those, never had anything wrong with it very reliable car. Only thing is, it aint to fast when getting above 60mph sometimes that is irritating on the highway

    8v is said to be sluggish. I would think that considering the size of the Astra you would need to have atleast a 1.6 16v engine. My 1.6 16v felt quite nippy at times!.
