Don't listen to the "knockers" - it's great
Rotor angle sensor malfunctioned at about 50000 miles and cost £60 to replace.
Fantastic luggage capabilities with the rear seats folded flat.
High driving position, and the fact that the rear seats are slightly higher than the front, allows panoramic views for passengers.
Seats a bit hard, but then all modern cars appear to be the same compared to my old Herald with sprung seats!
Slightly underpowered on motorways, but once up to speed will happily cruise at 70 very economically.
The cabin interior and seats are a bit drab - a shame Vauxhall did not keep the interior of the original Wagon-Rs with bright colours and storage nets in the roof.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
