Basic Spec Is Great As A Runabout — this one was a 1.4 litre 8 valve, so rather uninspiring, a phase 1 (pre facelift) so not as pretty as the GSi or the phase 2's, and as a merit was very low spec. As a basic "get me around" car it is fine - build quality sufficient, cost of ownership is cheap as chips to buy, insure, run and maintain, performance on this engine is weak but sufficient for everyday errands, but fun factor notably absent, although it is a capable little car with superior handling qualities, always safe and with sufficient feedback and grip. Plus points - they are FANTASTIC in snow! That's what really hooked me onto astras - the handling is great.

Pros: fantastic handling, especially in snow, high spec GSi and GLS, 2 litres

Cons: uninspiring in other criteria, low spec merits and 1.4 engines.

Its Good Fun — engine wise, i love it but it looks crap. speaking more than ever, done over 132 thousand miles and i done over 9 thousand myself. mpg is rubbish, im averaging about 20 - 25 mpg. but it a good laugh to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: quick for what it is

Cons: if you dont treat it right, you know about it

1994l Vauxhall Astra 1.4i Hi-torque 5dr Hatchback — Whilst i have owned it, i have fitted had a new Head Gasket, Head Thermostat, Rad Thermostat, Inlet and Exhaust Gaskets, Downpipe Gasket, New Air Filter Box, New Battery, Alternater and Alt. Belt. Roomy, solid, and economical car which lacks a bit in performance. For a small 1.4 this car's performance is not that bad, and it does have a slightly sporty feel to it while it's being driven. Handling is moderate. Performance is good once you get above 3,000rpm. Under that it can seem slow.

Pros: Nice and reliable,

Cons: Steering can be heavy without power steering.

1994 Vauxhall Astra 1.8 16v Pineapple Sport — 1994 Vauxhall Astra 1.8 16v Sport. Finished in gorgeous Pineapple Yellow! Pulls like a train yet is excellent on fuel. The build quality is surprisingly good for a mass produced car and unlike many other Astras of this age, it has no rot. It's cheap to run and insure and being pretty swift, it's great fun to drive!

Pros: Brilliant handling and performance.

Cons: It eats driveshaft gaiters for a living!

My Lovely Litle Car — Bought this car for £500 with 116k on the clock, since having it i upsized the wheels to 15", put rear lexus lights on, changed the front indicators and side repeaters to clear, and have put an induction kit on. The engine is only a little 1.4 litre, but has done me well, with now 135k on the clock i had the head gasket and timing belt changed (just incase). I enjoy driving my car and if i was to get another car i would have to keep this one too

Pros: Everything

Cons: The small engine,(want 2.0 litre turbo)

Cheap Runabout — 1.6ltr lx Bought as a cheap runabout, low running costs, and good build quality, no power steering, 3 door looked awful, good size boot. Performance slow for 1.6. Handling not great. Got from a-b ok.

Pros: Cheap to run

Cons: performance low on kit and heavy steering

'impulse' Buy I Made At A Car Auction Once... — Was a comfy car but diesel so performace was not brilliant. Also had been used as a company car rep before and someone had messed about with the engine. Managed to get it through an MOT then got rid of it quick before it cost me more money

Pros: Comfy, Saloon quite useful shape, had five doors so none of that clambering over front seat bollocks to get into the back...!

Cons: Diesel engine sluggish, bit of a 'middle age family person' image!

Fun To Play Around In — well where to start, was a 1994 Astra mk3 1.4 multi point injection 16v GSI in carmine red, very nice car for its age, was very good on fuel did about 40mpg around town and between 30mpg to 46 on a run depending on how much i pushed it. 0-60 i would say around the 9 secs. top speed i have almost had 130mph on it check my bebo for speed video.its in my vids somewhere. http://www.bebo.com/Profile.jsp?MemberId=9050539

Pros: nice car to drive,easy clutch non of that hydrolic crap, all cable.

Cons: was in red so coz of the age, the paint had started to fade and it needed polishing nearly every week
