1999 Opel Omega GL 2.0 DTI 16V
Value for money!!
This Omega is (also) in use as a taxi. But really, this one didn't visit the dealer too much.
A small radio cassette defect .
Door construction proved too weak for extensive use. Front doors didn't stay open on their own.
As a result of the repairs, the unit to adjust the mirrors was refitted wrong... If you think you move the left mirror up, in fact you move the right one down. Thank you for 135 Dutch Guilders and an hour in the garage!
When will they make a NICE workable clutch in Russelheim?
Bad paint job. But you can order any colour you want.
This GL DTI proved to be more reliable than the slightly older Diamond DTI in service with our taxi company. It's not as luxurious as the Diamond, but it runs very nice.
Some small irritating stuff you always find when there's 90,000kms a year on one driver's seat. By the way, this seat isn't as comfortable as a sports seat in a Diamond.
Remains: A lot of space; nice low fuel consumption and value for money! It was good that Opel introduced a taxi model of the Omega with better suspension and some other things.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
