Re: Looking at an Astra XR coupe...

I traded my Astra XR3 for a 2012 MazdaSpeed3 a few months back. I got tired of taking it to the local dealer only to have them tell me they couldn't reproduce a problem or the problem isn't covered...

Re: Alternator Pulley? Saturn Doesn't Have the Tool? HELP!

It's not an 'annoyance' when it's noticeably dragging down my MPG (~ 10% now) and another owner reported the belt failing. That's not a dash rattle (got that too), that's a problem that should be...

Re: Belt Squeal w/ AC On

The noise has gone from an occasional annoyance with the AC on while turning at low RPMs to an embarrassing noise pulling off a light with the AC on. GM should fix this defect and they are not. ...

Re: Belt Squeal w/ AC On

I've had good service from Autoway on my previous two or three visits but I always dealt with Bill. This time I was assigned Becky who went on vacation the day I dropped my car. I was told to work...

Re: Belt Squeal w/ AC On

No, I haven't had too much trouble (yet), but I'm sick of the lack of service/support GM is providing for the Astra. I see too many other owners with 'common issues' that GM isn't acknowledging. My...

Re: Alternator Pulley? Saturn Doesn't Have the Tool? HELP!

It is ridiculous GM is not replacing these defective parts under an as-needed recall. If mine is not covered, I'm trading it in on a non-GM car (likely Ford, Japanese, or Korean) and will NEVER...

Re: Belt Squeal w/ AC On

I just heard from the dealership. They told me there is a service bulletin about the alternator pulley causing this issue. That tells me it's a known problem (as in defect) and should be fixed by...

Re: Belt Squeal w/ AC On

Had my belt replaced on the first visit (when they wouldn't believe me the tensioner was the problem). Squeak came back almost immediately. Had the belt/tensioner replaced the 2nd visit. That was...

Re: New Jets

I can't stand the factory jets. How difficult was the swap? Someone else on here did it and mentioned someone with large hands/fingers would have difficulty.

Re: Roof Rack Rails?

Mine were replaced a while back. Unfortunately, the cover for one of the roof rack fasteners blew/fell off. Also, the rubber under the rear windows is stained like the roof rack was. I guess a...

Re: 1000 gallons down

I do the same. I was averaging high 29's but since taking a new job in Tampa my average has dropped to 28.2. My normal mileage is 25-27, not terrible but should be better given the lack of overall...

Re: Finally saw another Astra

I've seen a handful of Astras in the Tampa Bay Area. Some in parking lots and others out on the road. I always beep and wave but so far I've received nothing but a blank WTF are you? stare in...

Re: Windshield Wipers!!!

When I select "Wiper blade" it shows "Kit" for $17.34. Does that mean 2 blades? If so, that's a great price.

Re: Where and how much $ to buy an improved radio w/ I-pod connectivity and better so

I hope not... It was a car audio shop and two different installers.

What would happen is they'd connect up the 'Connects2' adapter and the car wouldn't start. They could start the car and plug...

Re: Where and how much $ to buy an improved radio w/ I-pod connectivity and better so

I got 2 sets of Connects2 adapters to get my BC steering wheel controls to work. Both resulted in the car not starting. :mad:

Good luck though! :D

Re: 1st gear difficult to engage

Yep, mine does it too. Unfortunately you have to give it a little more gas and less clutch (let it slip more) to reduce the chatter. Also, the high RPM shifts from 1st to 2nd are hit and miss.
