Summary:

Way too underrated!

Faults:

It is something weird with the interval wipers. They stop in front of your nose instead of going back.

There is also rust through the rear fender.

The front seat heaters doesn't work.

General Comments:

OK, there is some electrical problems and rust, things that Opel are known for. But hey-the car is 14 years old! Omega is also a really funny automobile in the wintertime, believe it or not.

And you get a lot of comfort and interior space for the money!

Summary:

A high performance bargain

Faults:

I haven't got any problems with this car. It's working fine!

General Comments:

This car is very good and has extremely good road grip. On the highway I have been testing the top speed and 245km/h is no problem. The acceleration is also good, 0-100km/h in 8.3 seconds is not too bad.

Good comfort and lower noise than a Volvo V70 in high speeds.

An excellent car and will keep it for a long time.

I agree, it's a very nice car.

You must remember there is a very big difference in fuel consumption between a 3000 and a 3000 24V.

The 3000 24V is to be preferred.
