A few years back I stumbled upon the Vauxhall Astra ECO 1.7 Dti model. it was sparkly and black, so what could I do, but buy it! I love the shape of this car, and the cabin design is pretty nice too. I am going to steal a little section from my general review on cars later on. The first year the car was fantastic, well, after screwing the engine back in to place - one of the screws sheared off and the others were loose so there was a funny noise and a bit of vibration - one day i had the sense to stop the car and havea look - lucky as i think this is when the screw had just fallen to pieces. This was of course not covered under the warranty. My dad came ... Read the complete review

The 'D' word rang bells in my head as the Boss told me that my new company car was not going to be petrol, but that noisy 'taxi' style thing they call DIESEL!!! I shuddered at the prospect of having to scale down from my existing 1.6 16v Astra LS to this new Kid on the Block - the ECO4. Now wait a minute...ECO4, anything with the letters ECO included makes you think of Green, environmentally friendly, 50 Miles per hour on the Motorway, Dean Martin on the stereo, but before I had ordered my new pipe and slippers, lo and behold the ECO4 was sitting in the forecourt beaming at me. I must admit, I'd actually driven past it ... Read the complete review

Vauxhall Astra LS ECO4 1.7DTi 16v 5-door Hatchback is the 'eco' version of the model of the Astra. The Astra in question is not the latest shape car but the one before the current model. While the car is not one of the prettiest cars you are going to buy I would describe it as better looking that some of the earlier models; although the newest model is the best of the bunch so far. In terms of performance, this version of the Astra had the 1.7 DTi, in other words it is a diesel. So as with all diesels it has a noisy engine, but do not let that put you off, as you trade the noise for increased fuel efficiency, as this car can push close to 70 MPG ... Read the complete review

After my sisters husband died of cancer (very sad time for her) she said to me would I like her old car as she was going to use the family one from now on, I agreed and I have never looked back, the car had been left on the drive for over a year and after giving the battery a quick boost the car started first time, a quick service later and the car was back on the road. It is very comfortable and quite quick, its a great family car with plenty of leg room in the front and back and all seats are comfortable, its great on long motorway trips and will average 110 without really breaking a sweat and doesn't use up too much fuel we recently hit the south coast from High ...
