1998 Opel Tigra XI 1.6 16v petrol
The car had various repairs and parts changed by the Opel dealership before I purchased the car.
The brakes, battery and belts were changed before purchase.
I had the ecu reprogrammed as it was out of tune, saying the car was a 1.4 litre 16V Automatic without air conditioning. This took away power and the car was unpleasant to drive.
The engine management light came on occasionally then finally stayed on and the car stalled, causing the speedometer to cease.
After placing 17" wheels on the car I have noticed a slight crack in the front left brake.
The last problem was the alternator which died.
All these problems happened in less than 6 months.
It's a nice looking car.
It's not worth the money though.
Has far too many problems.
Should be recalled by Opel.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Hi, I purchased my 1996 1.4 Opel Tigra in November 2003. 2 months ago, my cigarette charger blew up, my power steering belt fell off. My alternator light keeps coming on and cutting out the car when I'm preparing to stop. When the charger blew my speedometer stopped working. Does anyone know what the problem is?? Because being a woman I am not going to go to a garage to get robbed for a few simple jobs. Thanks Sarah Also,
