"2flash or not 2flash"

Exterior and Interior

Good, functional, comfortable and usable, like wearing a favourite jacket. Attractive exterior, which is one reason I bought it (but I like the Astra range anyway). It always reminds of the starship trooper in star wars. Mine is white btw. I got it at 6 months old a contract car, and it had been badly used by the previous owner, but despite that he still could not wreck it, I had to do a few repairs and it was like new. So I like my Astra and will get another, but not yet. Not yet. I use it as a workhorse, I have other cars including Mercedes, but the Astra is my favourite, cant say more :)

Performance and Economy

For a 1.7 diesel its lively and really good on fuel. I fill it up once every 2 weeks, and just don't have to worry about its economy, again am pleased with this car :)

Like to Drive

All I can say is that even after a prolonged spell of driving in all sorts of traffic I don't feel tired at the end of the journey. This car talks to me lets me know the road conditions through the feed back I get from driving it. <

Faults and Repairs

As I said in the beginning it was badly used, and I had to replace the battery the alternator and all 4 tyres, I'm a car interior repairer so the scratchings he made and damage to the seat was rectified, and it is a great car. They are not the cars fault but the way it was used. I pity his wife (if he has one).
