    look out for worn suspension bushes (rear) Look for headgasket ware especially on the 1.6. Look out for the EM & air bag lights... Rust on rear arches... dodgy sensors (EGR Valve/Cam shaft sensor/Air flow sensors etc etc...) To be honest i dont think MK4 Astras have too many problems, in general if they have been looked after you should be fine! Engines can run right upto 200'000+ if they have been looked after... I would say service history is a must & make sure the cambelt has been done etc etc... (although i got no service history with mine!!!) im sure some1 else can add to this?
