hello people from the dark side my mate is looking at buying a vauxhall astra van, ive warned him off the 1.9cdti as iv heard a few bad things about them including the common flywheel problem. are there 2 different engines in the mk4 (roughly 2003/2004) and a mk5 (same sort of age)? are there any common problems with the 1.7's? and anything to look out for when buying?
any advice would be welcome
