Cheap car - nothing special


Starter went bad.

Oil leaks from engine.

Front brakes shakes.

General Comments:

Opel Kadett is absolutely mediocre car in my opinion.

1.6D engine is very noisy and it has only 55 HP and 96 Nm so acceleration is very poor and the top speed is about 160 kph.

Interior is shoddy.

Trunk is pretty spacious.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
