2008 Astra XE
Default Looking to buy an Astra

Hey everyone, been a long time since I've been on here.

My previous car died and wasn't worth fixing so I'm shopping around and found an Astra that I am quite impressed with. Its a 2008 XE, 5 door automatic with 130000km. I've driven the car and really enjoy it quite a bit and am almost sold on it. When inspecting the car though I did notice the transmission fluid is a brownish colour - my understanding is auto fluid is supposed to be red, but I can't help but wonder if its actually supposed to be this colour? There isn't a burnt smell or anything to it and it shifts fairly smooth.

Also is there anything else I should look at/take into consideration while I'm looking at the car?

Thanks for any input!
You'll have to speak up, I'm wearing a towel.
