    ASTRA 1.8 sxi for ZAFIRA 2.0 gsi?

    Hi i am thinking about buying a ZAF gsi just curious to the reliability of them and is it a good car bad car? common faults general stuff dont wanna jump into buying one and have to replace the turbo every 6months (dont no much about cars)

    should get 9 months from a turbo at least. As far as reliability goes it will be similar to the 1.8. The turbod do fail and seem to average 30 - 50k a time
    Be Happy

    I went from a 1,8 to a Gsi no probs at all
    mpg wise Gsi is better on a Run then the 1,8
    more power
    more room

    A few of the sensors fail, AFM, boost solenoids etc but TBH they are mostly fairly cheap and relatively easy to replace.
    General reliability is the same as most cars these days, down to pot luck IMO but if you get a good one, you'll love it.
