I've had my Astra 1.4T SRI 150PS since the middle of Dec, very pleased with it apart from a hesitation/misfire when accelerating from approx. 20-50mph with moderate to heavy throttle application, this is more noticeable when cold, Just wondered if anyone else had the same issue?
I also have the fuel gauge issue and have had the alarm sound twice outside my house but no flashing indicators just the siren! It also did not register in the driver info when I got into the car and I had no text even though I am registered for it.

There is no flash on my car when alarm is activated. Is there any way to solve this problem?

Also some of my friends told me that hesitation problem but i coudnlt understand what they were talking about exactly. Now i see there is some other people have that issue also.

Doesn't sound good and not what you would expect from a new car. We are collecting our 1.4 Turbo at the end of March and any problems like that it will be going straight back. Could be down to any number of things but hopefully it can be sorted.

Just seen this I have. Had a couple of incidents where I am accelerating and the car has a momentary jolt as if misfiring , also when pulling away I'm not sure if it's the sound of the turbo sucking in or a slight rattle, will take it in when I get a chance

Mine make the rattling sound as well. Started noticing it now I've been driving with the windows down. Pretty sure it's something to do with the turbo as does it when the boost comes in. Sounds like there's a dump valve in there somewhere as get that wooshing sound when you let off the throttle.

Had it since new too. Misfire usually happens in 2200-3000rpm range. Also idle is shaky and rough ;) dealership is crap so they refuse to even look at it :)
