Astra K our 11th Astra.

Post by 11thastra » Sat Jul 14, 2018 3:53 pm

Picked up our 11th Astra yesterday from a dealer in Bristol.
77k miles would seem to be the highest mileage for a 1.6cdti 110 of what I’ve read on this forum.
When the salesman showed the car and started it up there was sound like a Gatling gun!!
The car had to be serviced before we could take it away, it didn’t make the noise after the service and was lovely and quiet 5his morning.
Drives lovely and v economical.
BUT... when we had filled up with diesel the missus went to put it in gear and found the clutch pedal was stuck down....
I took over and managed to hook the pedal back up with my foot and it hasn’t done it again..
Tough question... should I return it and swap it fir something else or give it a chance as after reading of all the clutch issues on here I’m seriously thinking I’ve bought a wrong un?ImageImage

Congrats on the new car, impressive mileage what age is it?
What were your other 10 astras?
I've had a Mk3, Mk5 and still have one of two Mk2's, so the K is no. 5.

Welcome to the forum!

Can't compete with you, only on my 2nd Astra (had a diesel 'J' before this one), but I've been delighted with both.

On the clutch issue, total agree with Scotty, get it looked at pdq!

Hope it all gets resolved
