    Question Been offered an astra advice needed

    Hey guys, completley new here and i dont own an astra YET.

    Mate of mine has got a 1999 1.8 16v sport astra for sale, it has however done 110,000 miles with a service about to be carried out.

    He doesnt want much for the car as he wants to sell it to make room for his astra coupe turbo (thumbs up to him)

    Is there goin to be issues with the car soon?
    I havent got a clue.
    Hes had the car a year with no problems at all.

    Somebody please help

    Thanks

    Kyle

    as long as it has been looked after it will be fine

    does he let it warm up before putting his foot down?
    How does he generally treat the car?
    does it keep on top of the general maintance? check fluid levels etc?
    has it got a full service history?

    there are plenty of people on here that have got 100K+ mile with no problems

    our 1.6 is coming upto 90K and still runs like a dream
