The gold one you looked at is the same as the ones I'm after (Astra F or Mk3). They aren't noted for handling prowess, but I know what to expect in that department. The TD isn't a bad motor, I've driven Cavaliers with the same engine and although no sports car they're powerful enough and frugal.
I'm after a spacious estate car, cheap to run and fix and the Astra ticks all the boxes, plus I still miss my old Mk 1 Astra estate. Now there was a masterclass in body roll!
The Vauxhall Cavalier - one of the safest cars you'll bump into
