    Happy days!!!!

    Got rid of my 2005 Astra 1.7 CDTI CLUB ESTATE 80 72k FSH

    Had it for 4 months and plenty of problems (the engine was rattly and I ended up hating itl)

    1) Noticed it was drinking diesel
    2) First ever trip on motorway results in EML light, no go over 70mph, suspected egr fault cleaned and ok.
    3) Next trip results in undertray flapping wildly, cannot go over 50mph
    4) within 2 weeks the rad started to leak
    5) After this various EML light used to flash for no reason when driving, hand brake light, coolant light, seat bets lights which was very unnerving (all fluids were ok)
    6) FINALLY IT STARTED TO LEAK OIL.

    Glad its gone, it was my first and will be my last vauxhall.
