We have the chance of replacing our Corsa with a 54 plate Astra 1.7 diesel, it is a company car and has covered nearly 100,000 miles.
It's been regularly maintained, we know the current lady user and it's offered at a good price. I've driven it and it runs well, at normal road speeds it appeared to be resonably quiet inside.
However a friend came round in a 58 plate diesel and I noticed that the diesel engine on this car was very much quieter than the 54 plate car.
Is higher engine noise because of the 100,000 miles on the 54 plate car or is there a different, quiter engine in the 58 plate car?
Thanks for any advice
