2001 Opel Astra sedan (long ass) 1.7 dti
Cheap and reliable
Interior air supply fan dead with around 100.00 km
Alternator dead with around 120.000 km.
Simple, cheap to run and reliable and still nice to drive. Ground clearance is nice too, I´ve put the car in some pretty bad places without scratching anything down there. Not a thing you usually look at in this kind of car, but pretty important sometimes (with some cars you can easilly bang the oil pan sometimes). Fuel economy is amazing too, you can get under 4 L per 100 km in motorway and it´s not a lot more in normal driving.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
