    Default No Astra but

    We walked away with a Freelander. What a motor for the year and price. 2000 quid R reg 1.8 xsi 81k miles full histrory from Knustford Land rover and in very very good condition for year. Dark green. They will give it a full mot and service. Cambelt was done at 74k.
    The wife is over the moon with it. I'm sure i'll post picture's up at the weekend when i pick it up.
    The astra was not a nice as i first thought. 134900 miles no history. Just not nice overall.

    Stand by for all the 'headgasket' replies.

    Just keep regular checks on the coolant and all should be well.

    I was just going to say that too

    When i bought mine 5 years ago i had a '52 plate with 9k miles and i saw no end that had "leaks" around the head.
    Mine had the gearbox replaced at 19k as it made some strange noises. They had it in for 5 days at first to change the oil as per head office instructions. I picked the thing up, drove down the road and straight back to the dealers.
    In fairness they knew i'd be going back but had to follow orders from above.
    The whole gearbox/diff was replaced Took a month to order it though
    Best bit was the brand new TD4 i had as a loaner whilst it was in. Really wished i had gone for the TD4 after that. They hold the value far better than the petrol units and are far more economical too.

    Next doors has been good to them though, tows horseyboxes and all sorts. Only problem I know it has is the drivers door window and it's regulator have an uneasy relationship.
