    Angry Round 2 For The Astra

    Well, after paying out £900 for the engine to get fixed i've now had to drop the car off again.

    There is a oil leak on coming from somewhere and the engine management light came on when i was stationary in traffic this morning. Also there is a terrible sqeeking noise coming from the front driver side break and a even worse noise coming from the rear driver side when i'm reversing, sounds like a creaking door.

    I'm so annoyed, as i've only had the car 3mths. I hope to god that there is nothing seriously wrong with it, but all shall be known this afternoon.

    Has anyone ever had so many problems with a car like me, i'm thinking about sacking cars off all together and getting a mountain bike

    Sort of, although not as heavy in 1 lump like your case

    my first one was a Citroen AX which i owned (notice i didn't put had) for about 6 months. People could be forgiven for thinking i just borrowed it from the garage as it seemed to spend most its time there, overheating, not keeping charge & just generally falling apart.
    Was given a Citroen ZX which after a while decided to make the inside look like something of a swimming pool. But not nearly as many problems as the AX

    Went on to Fords then, Escorts to be precise. Had 2 which were relatively problem free.

    Picked up my Astra last week & when the sale of the Escort happens, hopefully soon, i'll then be able to drive it proper.


    Feel for you bud as i remember what it's like having the damn thing in every other week!!!

    Just hoping that the problem with the front and back wheels isn't a heavy price to pay. It's just frustrating when you pay out £2,000 for a car then have to pay another £1,000 to keep it running grrrrr!

    But thats the joys of owning a car i guess lol
