    Hi

    I had one up until last year -great car - never let me down - well built and felt really niceinside.

    Only reason I had to get rid of it was because it was a manual gearbox.

    The nav is pretty good as well - mine was a 2 litre petrol so only ever saw 25 mpg approx as I only do 10 miles a day - and mine was the estate.

    I love it, nice car I have had to look now at a smaller car SXI , for fuel savings, but if you can afford it it's a comfy car, long journeys down the motorway brilliant fuel usage hardly noticed, around town it's expensive.

    I've had one for three years now, and it had it's first problem this month when both of the rear brakes decided to come on all by it's self while I'm doing seventy down the motorway, RAC took a look said it was OK take it slow, I had to have four news discs and brake pads. This is the first mobility repairs in seven cars I've had so not bad.


    Will be having a new Vaxhaul SXI or SRI Astra auto soon...

    Take them down the garage and then ignore it saying it's for posh people, to expensive for us, they always end up going to have a look sit in it and you have won, it's what I do what ever car I want I totally ignore it saying to expensive

    My wife knows too much about cars for me to get away with that one

    Although I like the Insignia (I went to see it launched at the British Motor Show), I think I prefer the Astra. It just seems to be targeted at a younger audience. I don't want to look older before my time

    Vauxhall Insignia Sri 2.0 cdti Sports Tourer 160 bhp I have had this car now for nearly a year and yes I love the car.You get a lot for your allowance folks.I previously had Volkswagen Golf's for quite a few years but because you only got the basic car I decided to move to Vauxhall and got the Insignia.Only a few small probs. There a few blind spots on the car and you need to be sharp when driving.Getting in and out without a handle above the door is a problem.Another thing folks.I only paid £17 advanced payment so I got a good deal.Yes I would recommend the car to those contemplating getting one.
