I don't recommend this car


At 45k I had to change the generator, water pump and timing chain. They first told me to change the time chain at 60k, but reduced it to 45k!? The electric mirrors have packed up a year ago. The speed counter stopped 3 years ago and all the dashboard had to be changed. April 2006 my car was 9 days at the service station. The brake calipers on right rear wheel has to be changed for £2200!.

The fuel gauge is a problem too.

General Comments:

This Zafira is my 4th Opel. And last.. Time to change.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
