2000 Opel Omega Sport 2.2 from Philippines


Based on this one, I would never buy another Opel, nor recommend one to anyone else


It's a piece of junk.

Fuel pump went bad, brakes went bad, water pump went out, stabilization bars broke. All this in about a year. We are not even in the Philippines permanently. We only come from the US once or twice a year for a few months at a time.

Replaced the stabilization bars.

The car was overheating and shutting off in the middle of the road. What a stupid concept. Yes, save the engine, but you can't just have it shut off like that, especially in the Philippines, as you can rarely just pull over to the side here. You stop, all traffic stops for a lot of people. I replaced the water pump, was told the thermostat was good, fan comes on, but yet after I drive the car anywhere, once I shut it off, it will not start for about an hour, after it cools off again. A total piece of crap car.

Sometimes when you press the gas, no problem, all is good. Other times, it will hesitate. If that happens, when you hit a hill, you have to put it in the lowest gear, and gun the throttle just to get up the hill.

It is the most embarrassing car I have ever had. I wouldn't recommend Opel to anyone, ever.

What's the mileage of the car?

2000 Opel Omega V6 Executive Irmscher 3.0 V6 petrol from Kingdom of Bahrain


Greatest car I've owned


Nothing! Money has just been spent on the usual service.

General Comments:

Great car, great cabin. Very comfy interior, sexy exterior. I have got the Irmscher version with body kit factory fitted, 40 mm lowering kit also factory fitted. Drives and handles like a true sports car. The best part of it is that the car is a RWD.

2000 Opel Omega GL 3.0i 24 V from United Arab Emirates


Very cheap and luxurious with a powerful V6 engine


1. Alarm (horn) fault. But I think it was because I use it continuously at times (celebration) and that was replaced by the dealer quickly under the warranty.

2. Battery damage (because of very hot weather in the GULF AREA). But it was replaced by the dealer quickly under the warranty (took only 2 hours to get the parts and fix the problem).

3. A/C filter was replaced by the dealer under the warranty.

Nothing else (I can't believe it).

General Comments:

1. Very comfortable car.

2. Good preference and quality compared with other luxury cars.

3.Powerful 3.0 V6 petrol engine car can give you 250 km/h and 260 km/h for manual transmission. 0-100 km/h can done nearly in 8.5 s.

4. Firm when driving fast (200 km/h).

5. Excellent power steering.

6. Good dealer service - they fix the problem quickly and the parts are not cheap and not expensive.

7. The only thing that I don't like is when you want to open the rear box, you have to switch off the engine, and if you switch on the A/C, it starts it with the top level and makes a noise inside the car so you have to lower it each time you open the car.

8. VERY good xenon lights and fog lamps.

9. Amazing 10 loud speakers with a 4 CD changer.

10. Very cheap car with these preferences.

11. I tried to race many cars. One of them is (NISSAN Maxima/Sefiro 3.0 229 HP), but my car is better in acceleration and top speed. The same with a Honda Accord Coupe 2.3

It costs me only 18750 US$

12. You feel as you are driving an E320 or Audi A6.

13. ABS has saved my life many times.

14. Traction control, also helps me to control my drive in dangerous cases.

15. Ignition sound and engine sound is very good (better than the Mercedes S500 or BMW 530i or Chevrolet Caprice V8 or most of V6 cars in the world) - not important for some people but important to me.

16. Amazing 5-spoke 17" x 235 alloy wheels.

17. Very good interior.

18. Good safety (4 airbags)
