    Has your astra ever left you stranded?

    Just wondering how many people here have had the wonderful experience of breaking down in their astras?

    its never left me stranded yet it blew the gearbox to pieces and looked like you had taken a shotgun to the gearbox but it still got me 25 miles home without losing drive altogether

    couple of weeks ago was the first time in a year and a half, a coolant hose decided to burst and i had a fountain of water (mind you not the kind kids can play in) but the kind thats boiling hot and steaming spray out of my engine bay.

    First time I have ever had to pull over was the other day when i clipped the kerb and damaged one of my tyres, was my own fault and 10 minutes later I had my spare on, still hadnt got round to getting a larger spare wheel so, spare wheel onto the back and back wheel onto the front, at least it wasn't raining.
