evenin all.. soon to be an owner of my first vauxhall ever. Nothing major, Astra diesel Estate on a 55 plate. I know my cars well and are more than handy with a spanner, so this was a bit of a gamble for me as i'm not sure how good or bad this car will be.
I was a bit undecided in buying it, but i kinda like the shape of the estates and i need something that would let me carry my hang glider round on the roof Took it for a drive and it seems good, so hey why not. I was always a bit unsure about the vaux reliability issues, but i've gone and taken the chance anyway... hopefully i havent made a mistake.
PS the price was £5800 on a 55 plate, 48k miles, 1.7cdti sxi. Very good condition inside and out with a 12 month warranty thrown in .. does this sound a decent price? i know you can get 56 plates for 6k with 30k on them, but all i've looked at are either 'life' trim or a bit tatty.
Ps i'm normally a jap car head, having previously ran the supra owners club for six years, and owned and maintained a 380bhp ultra rare mk3 supe. So, hit me with the technical stuff if you want.. i know a bit (but not a lot).
