Re: Goodbye Astra.

Enjoy your new car Boroboy, you must have taken a big hit on the astra 1l considering the length of time you had it. You seem to change your car quite often, even when you were on astraownersnetwork. A couple of lads at work have the Leon 1.4 on lease deals and talk very highly of it. Stay in touch...

Re: Goodbye Astra.

Hi Boroboy sorry to hear you are leaving.....another member ! The Leon is a good car , same as ours but dsg box. You will encounter Leon rattles (dash plastic surround , possibly doors) but really easy fixes . Tsi engines superb and good on fuel. Nice to travel in and highly rated by the car mags (...

Goodbye Astra.

I didn't settle with my 1.0t, moving from my previous 1.6d. Mainly due to the fact it was a manual. I've just bought a 2016 Leon 1.2t se dsg (tec pack & led lights). So I'll be leaving the fold. I shall still pop on the forum from time to time. Just like to say thanks to you all for all the friendly...

Re: Astra 1.6T - Could have been so much better

Sorry to hear that your leaving, I can totally understand why. I'm on my second Astra K now, first one (1.6d), had timing chain issues. My current one is a rattle box (1.0t). I've had over 30 years driving vauxhalls, in my opinion the build quality of the Astra's has dropped. Although admittedly the...

Re: Rattling from dash .

I have a few ongoing dash rattles, the doors creak too. Can't solve the door issues, neither could vaux. Just something I'm putting up with. Certainly rattles more than my previous J or H, when they were nearly new. I think the cabin build quality has dropped.

Re: Can't believe it happened again.....

Nothing suprises me when it comes to Vauxhall dealer servicing. The only thing I've found them quick with is taking your money..... :lol: I understand where you are coming from though, your money and time they've wasted. Last service I took mine in for, they forgot to tighten my oil filter housing u...

Re: A problem that can not be resolved for 3 years!!

Yep door creaks are common, there's a lot of play on the door seals. Try pushing one from the outside edge inward, then you'll see what I mean. Mine annoyingly creaks at times too. especially from a cold start. Not my previous 1.6cdti (136), though. I've never owned a car with so much door movement...

Re: Astra K 1.0t lumpy running?

I also owned a rover 214 sei😂😂😂 The worst thing about that car was the Peugeot gearbox that was mated to the K-series engine😒😒 failed twice on me.
