1992 Vauxhall Cavalier LX 1.7 turbo diesel (Isuzu)
Best car I've ever had
I bought a 10-year old 1992 Vauxhall Cavalier TD with 130,000 miles on the clock, second-hand from a dealer. It drove like a dream on a test drive so I snapped it up. I had it for 7 years and in all that time it never let me down, even once. All I ever paid out for was oil, filters, brake pads, shoes etc, i.e minor items. It sailed through MOTs.
The Isuzu diesel engine was a diamond. Not as much power as a petrol one, but still enough to tow a small 13ft caravan no problem.
Solo, it regularly turned out 50 MPG.
I sold it with 160,000+ on the clock and not even an oil leak from that Isuzu engine!
One of the best cars I've ever owned.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
