1995 Opel Vectra GL 1.6


I love it. I can't change it


- It's not so comfortable on highways.

- I have changed the rear brakes.

General Comments:

- The car is lovely in stability, acceleration related to other cars in this class.

- The petrol consumption is very low related to the 1.6 engine.

- The car's cabin is big enough to carry a lot.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I drive a 1995 2.0 manual Vectra it & also cannot change it. It is very reliable & stable car on highways. I always maintain this car as I usually drive fast. I think it is one of the most safe & reliable family cars in its class.

1997 Opel Vectra CD 2.0L, 8 valves, petrol engine


A bargain


Engine belt tensioner was replaced twice costing about 100 US Dollars each time.

Faulty Air Conditioning system, Sometimes I felt that it is not working and some other times I feel that it is working properly. The problem seemed to be in the compressor, I had to replace it. Repair costs were 400 US Dollars.

Using velour on the doors inside the cabin is not practical, it has to be replaced after a while. The front seats are uncomfortable.

Rough highway ride, wind and tyre noise are clearly noticed.

General Comments:

In spite of my comments, I think that it is still a good car to drive. The road holding is excellent with a stable cornering.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
