One of the most reliable cars around
Not much really, even if this was an old car that I bought right after university for little money. Mostly wear items like brake pads, rusted exhaust system, battery, cracked head lamp. The only thing that I replaced that is not directly a wear item was the high beam lever that did not work. The car is very easy to work on, and most DIY's can work on this car. What finally made me sell this car was body rust, cosmetic things. The car is actually still running!
This car is unbelievable reliable, but very basic. The 75hp engine is barely enough for safe overtaking, with many passengers and load in the car, forget it. The ride is OK, but sound isolation is sparse. A pity Opel does not make quality cars like this anymore. This car cost me less than 100$ a year in service and repairs the 7 years I had this car. Believe it or not.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
