    Question 06 Plate 3 door coupe trip computer?

    I have just bought An 06 plate Astra coupe,, i cant get the trip computer to display anything.. I was told by the salesman it had one.. is it possible that there is no trip computer there? it says no function when i press the button it says to in the manual?

    Cheers

    If it just displays the clock and radio info then yes, the salesman was talking poop.

    I think Craig is right. The SXI doesn't come with the onboard computer.

    However, if you spoke to the dealer and he said it definitely had it... then he's miss-sold you the car. I'd be complaining about that

    Dave Dempsey will prob confirm it

    although he was prob the dodgey sales man who said it

    when i bought my old mk4 golf i was told the opposite

    they said it didnt have one and it did

    then ask him what you just asked us if he cant
