1990 Opel Vectra GL 2.0i 8v


Too bad they don't make them any more!


The rust was a major problem (and the ONLY one), and I had to deal with it 2 times in 7 years and 125.000km of ownership.

Timing belt snapped once (my fault), but made zero damage to the engine!

General Comments:

The car is very simple, very cheap to drive, use and abuse, and needs minimum maintenance.

Comfortable seats, roomy cabin, with good build quality, silent (till 160km/h+) and extremely durable, bullet proof engine.

Bought new front brakes when I bought the car; were not half worn after 125.000km.

NOTHING EVER went wrong with this car, which I didn't cause for myself!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
