    Hi people,

    hi chris and welcome to the club

    common faults with them are the dual mass flywheel going.
    it will be coming up to the mileage where they start to play up.
    to check this, just listen for a rattle when the clutch is pressed it for a while
    (u might feel a slight rumble through the pedal)

    you can ask if the egr valve has been changed as thats another common thing to go.

    there are other common faults with them but its stuff you can can only find out in time.

    oh and listen for a "whine" through the gears?

    ^that might sound bad but they are really good cars honest!!

    As low3sy said I would check the egr and inlet manifold, I was unaware of this when I first bought my Astra, managed to catch it in time as spanner light came on, took all egr and inlet apart, gave it a good clean and runs sweet as after that, due to do it again now.
    Also another thing with the 1.9cdti its recommended not to drive them like a turtle all the time, they need to be given a bit of abuse on a weekly basis, if not then they'll clog up alot quicker.
