    Unhappy Astra gsi troubles

    Just a bit of a gurn I suppose cos I'm in a bad modd with the car...

    Had a clicking inner C.V. joint on the n/s about 3 months ago, So I pulled the car off the road to get it sorted...

    The day before I was taking it off the road it was smashed into, meaning it needed a new rear quarter panel...

    I Was quoted 5 days by the body shop, but they ended up having the car for 5 weeks

    Ordered an inner joint, Once I got the car back, it arrived and it was wrong

    So I was told it had to be a whole shaft, ordered, it arrived and it was wrong

    Got another replacement from the same company, it was also wrong

    A full 2 months later I recieved a driveshaft, it was correct fitting

    I was well happy, as In the meantime I had de-catted the car, and fitted a new dumpvalve.

    So I got her back on the road on Saturday, Drove around 10miles and the turbo had started to smoke,

    Not being too bad I decided it's okay to drive till I get a replacement,

    Now tonight the new driveshaft has sheared off inside my outer C.v. joint

    SO all in all, in my 2 1/2 years of Gsi ownership the car has done 658miles due to one problem or another,

    I think I'll be bidding farewell once the shaft and turbo is sorted this time.

    Anyone else had this much trouble with their astra?

    My SRi-T stripped all the splines off the outer CV and inside of the hub yesterday, but touch wood with the 5 astra's i've had that's been the only serious thing that's went wrong.

    It's not that bad tho, only cost me £130 to sort

    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?
