      that's the trouble when you have two cars that aren't massively different ie a sports car and a 4 wheel drive, I always just tend to use the one that's got fuel in or the one that's easiest to get out

      just got back now, a guy in a Renault Capture was doing 20mph on the motorway, then he went in the right hand lane, then he went across 2 lanes to go off a slip road because he was going the wrong way, rather than carry on to the next exit and turn round he would rather chance causing a massive pile up

      Very economical my arse. Worst mpg for a diesel ive owned. 2015 2.0 sports tourer low mileage 23k driven like a granny and ive yet to get higher than 42mpg. Around the doors according to the on-board computer 36 ish mpg.

      Oh I know that Barrie but the mpg im managing and what ive read on various owner forum's is bloody poor compared to official figures. I traded in an 09 vectra 1.9 td that sat at 50mpg all day long around the doors. The car is great and suits my family down to the ground but im so disappointed with the economy.

      its virtually impossible to get the stated maximum mpg which is achieved under ideal conditions, but even hard driving you should get more than that

      bit like chalk and cheese really, and you must have driven a bad one because they drive very good as a rule, however the French cars are built for comfort so the ride will be better, but don't try taking a corner too fast :-)

      Interested in getting this model so thanks for the video. How's the electronic parking brake compared to a normal handbrake? Heard there were some problems it wasn't secure as a mechanical one. Thanks.

      +Barrie Crampton The way I move off after 80k miles I don't know what else I could do to make it go wrong :D Sometimes on my slight hill of a driveway it doesn't want to disengage (couple times a year) but you can override it by pressing brake pedal and pushing ebrake button down. Bare in mind my car is still on the ebrake recall and hasn't had the update from 3 or so years ago. (wouldn't let vauxhall touch my car). Luck of the draw maybe.

      +Barrie Crampton Tosh. Had no issues with my 11 plate J, was dubious of e brake to begin with but now wouldn't get a car without one if an option. Hill assist is nice, moving off much faster too as it disengages itself rather than manually lifting a hand brake. So yeah. Tosh.

      Taz the electronic handbrake is for people who have no hand/foot coordination and it didn’t need inventing, they are the same on all cars, difficult to service and make it longer and more expensive to change the pads, also they seize up on low mileage little used cars and cost a fortune to fix (in my humble opinion) 😎 but the actual car is great!

      I think you should still br able to come up with a better insult even if it was public, perhaps you should stick to crochet just doesn’t do it I’m afraid, anyway good luck with your channel i see you have had 64 views in over 2 years so perhaps your videos aren’t as riveting as you think they are either, probably best if you stick to just insulting other peoples videos 😎 seriously have a great night, thanks for watching and thanks for commenting, it really helps with my You Tube Ranking

      Ive had one for a year same model but 2013, what gets me is for asking price of car new.. over 25k it has no bluetooth or hands free.. i had to buy a bloody parrot, yet it has all controls on steering wheel... silly vauxhall.

      +Kevin McGuinness Can get a PX5 android head unit with lovely touch display from ebay for like 200-300. UK sellers. Transforms the car, nice size touch screen, DAB, bluetooth, hell I even have netflix. Any android app you want. Grab a nice car user interface from app store and you're laughing. Much superior in terms of what you can do with it than ANY in car entertainment system. Works with steering controls etc (obviously). AC and that kind of thing gets displayed on the screen too. Then throw a nice HD camera on the back, wire it through back and along roof edge inside, wire to reverse bulb for it's power, then it comes on when you go in reverse. Would also suggest Happyblue/happylightshow (about 60-100 quid) a german made OBD port thing that unlocks a few extras, such as being able to select any combination of external lights to come on when you unlock / and get out of car. So for instance headlights and backlights, can toggle them to turn on when you unlock car, then when you leave car they can come on again until you lock (or for set time). Can use it to do things like long press of unlock opens all windows, lock long press closes all windows. double press unlock to undo trunk hatch (in combination with uprated gas lifts and absorbers you can then make the boot open itself :D ) Also can do weird things like control windscreen wipers from your phone and all sorts. 2011 astra j very much feeling not-outdated :) Only thing I'd really want from it is adaptive cruise control because of how many motorway miles I do, cant use CC for longer than few mins without having to mess around with it from catching up to something even in slow lane. LED projector headlights ebay 200 too bish bosh. (aftermarket).

      Just bought this exact same car, 15 reg, pee'd off, no bluetooth, DAB or USB, only AUX in. Thankfully had Parrot already. Would've thought for a top-of-the-range model, this would've been standard. Otherwise, spotless and fun to drive, only 11K on the clock and I got a bit of a bargain (I think).
