2008 Astra XR
Default Re: buying astra: carfax shows engine wiring repaired/alternator replaced. Why???

Hey brice. Have not heard of wiring problems that are common. With the alternators there was a chirping with the AC on. Soloution was to replace the pulley. But it needed a special tool that none if the gm dealers had so they ended up replacing the whole alternator in some cases.

Could be that, maybe.

Get on yelp.com and find a well reviewed mechanic near the seller and have them take it over there for an inspection. Cost you 100, but could save you thousands.

Good luck!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
