Hey, I thought I'd try and get a heads up on any potential problems with the Mk4 Astra, and what greater place to start than the forums?
I'll start off by admitting that I love my Rover 25, but it's about to give out another head gasket failure. That'll be another £300+ repair. I've spotted 2 astra mk4's close by that may do a swap for the R25 seeing as it passed it's MOT less than two weeks ago.
Just wondering how good the 1.6 8v 101 bhp models are? My 1.4 supposedly kicks out 101 bhp too, but age does hinder this so it won't be as high. I'd say my car was fairly nippy for a 1.4, does the astra seem sluggish?
Any help is appreciated
