Summary:

Nice design and economical. Complete satisfaction

Faults:

Nothing so far.

General Comments:

Fast enough for a diesel.

Economical if one does not have a "heavy foot". It can easily spend around 6.2l/100Km, but as soon as you get carried away it will go up to 8.9l/100Km.

The top speed of this car is amazing for the Horse Power of the engine. 125Bhp - 210Km/h (Tested).

Excellent Gear-box.

Summary:

The best car by Opel so far.

Faults:

A window wiper broke and it was replaced on the spot.

General Comments:

This car is great. The interior is the best in this class. Although it is not as sporty as a Mazda 6 2.0 CD (which I was thinking of buying) its road handling is superb. the only problem are the tires which during winter time had to be replaced with ones that suite this weather. On long trips it is really easy to drive and fuel consumption is quite low about 6l/100km with air conditioning on and at a speed of 160 km/h.

In the city during winter time on short distances 5-7 km the engine takes some time before it gets warm.

All in all it is a fantastic car and it has the best dashboard I have seen!!!
