I'm planning to buy an MK4 Astra (2000 - 2003) and wanted to know if there are any specific things I should check on the car before buying ? As per the reviews, Astra is reliable and the only "known" issue is the EGR valve, but replacing an EGR valve is like £80 or so... so not too concerned. What are the other things to check ? Any other common faults ?
The car I'll buy would be from year 2000-2002 and with a mileage within 80K.. preferably cambelt done, or I will get it done.
PS: Is Focus more reliable than Astra in this range ? Asking in the wrong forum probably
