Depends what engine it has in it .... since the engines are now fiat based and very troublesome little lumps not unless they have started putting gm or izuzu lumps back in i would stay well clear .... ive done 4 engine changes and 6 turbos on vauxhaull vans .... they do 1.3 and 1.7 both as wank as each other not sure on the petrol though ....

If we get one it might have to be the 1.9 lump

1.9 is fiat too. Tbh everything nowadays is troublesome and vans usually are not look after hence loads of them are shoot, but if I'd have to chose between 1.3 1.7 and 1.9 I'd go for 1.9 seems to be most reliable option.

My dads got a astra van 1.9 se model with the sport button remapped due to egr deleate love that van its smart and goes very well 

The 1.3 cdti do head gaskets and turbo as said the 1.7 that ain't the Izuzu lumps are not the best the 1.9 seems ok similar to the  vectras etc so parts ain't bad. The 6 speed boxes suffer oil starve on top bearing so just slightly overfill. 
I think a lot of it is people buy them map them right up the dual mass fail it's expensive and say there shit

I had an Astra 1.9 cdti the main problems are egr valves, it's either buy a cheap one and have the same problem a month down the line or pay stupid money for main dealer or blank it off with a metal plate and have it mapped out, another is the gearboxes are like chocolate and are very weak but on the other hand Saab used the same engine but rarely have the gearbox problems, and finally dpf but it the same with most diesels now cut it out weld a straight pipe in and get it mapped out. Other than them problems it's a fairly decent engine, oh 1 last thing steer well clear of tuning boxes they melt your engine and go through God knows how many turbos lol.
