Summary:

An well-proven economy gem

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

An excellent and good looking car which still looks as good now as it did back in the mid eighties. A fine-handling, firm, but comfortably riding car, it was designed to be easy on the eyes. It's no wonder it was sold by so many different brands, but none were as right as the Opel versions.
