    Few Questions to 1.8 Coupe Owners.

    Im thinking of maybe buying a coupe as they have grown on me over the pass couple of months, and I just have a few questions about the 1.8 models.

    1. How many miles on a rough do you get on a full tank?
    2. How much roughly it cost you to fill up the tank?
    3. Any common issues with them?

    also could anyone give me any for's or againest reason to buying one

    thanks

    Scott.

    From £40 I get 200-250 miles depending how I drive, so I'd guess from a full tank, 250-300 I would have thought, which to be frank, is dreadful for a 1.8.
    But it is a really fun car to drive, the only issue I have had in a year of ownership is the bearings breaking on one wheel.
    If you can afford the fuel, do it.

    I (used to) get 300-350 miles to a tank, doing mainly dual carriageway driving and mostly with an empty car. I found that servicing the car always improved fuel economy

    common issues are no different to any other mk4 really, the Z18XE is a cracking engine, although 123bhp in a coupe isn't half as much fun as say the 2.2 or the 2.0 turbo
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    I wish i could afford the run a 2.2 or a turbo but Im only a lifeguard haha plus only one years no claims I just found out that its only 200 more a year on insurance so thought I might upgrade to a 1.8 coupe instead of keeping my 1.6 8v envoy

    i loved my 1.8 coupe, with sensible driving it can return 32-36 mpg, common issues, in my 3 years of owning one, i never had an issue, only thing that caused me a nightmare was when my starter motor died.

    Havent had any issues with my 1.8 coupe.

    Only thing is i get crap miles out of full tank. Mayb 250 if im lucky..... but i never take my car on long runs or get out of the town so all that is 2 miles into work and 2 miles home. Never get over 40mph most of the time .

    Dont get me wrong, its a great car and i wouldnt change it for anyone now i have owned it.

    Mayb upgrade it in a couple years time when insurance drops a bit
