Summary:

Great design; build quality could be better

Faults:

Few plastic parts broke down. other that that - perfect!

General Comments:

With 1.8l 125HP engine coupled with automatic transmission one can't expect a breathtaking performance.

Still - it's more that adequate, even fully loaded car is perfectly safe from the active safety angle.

A plastic lever that releases the second seats row (great feature - the entire row slides almost 30cm back and forth) broke down after few weeks.

Excessive wear of the brakes, more that I recall from any other car previously owned.

Fantastic seat arrangement variety - with third row folded, it proved to be a real van with huge capacity for different load.

May not be a fault, probably a safety feature.

Summary:

Unique high performance van

Faults:

No problems what so ever.

General Comments:

The Opel Zafira Turbo has top performance for a van as well for acceleration, brakes and road holding. On tiny mountain roads it behaves like a sports car. Beside this it's still offers a lot of space an very good comfort for 4 people. I don't recommend long distance travel with more than 4. Luggage space is rather limited.

The black side of the medal are high full and tire consumption.
