Overpriced iffy build quality. Better off with an LX model
Low fuel warning lamp and flasher come on too quickly.
Rubber seal around nearside rear door has fallen off.
Cassette holder in dashboard falls out.
Gearbox feels notchy (although will probably loosen with miles).
Dash moulding does not fit around speedo cowling.
I was surprised by this alleged 'top of the range' model and how Vauxhall get away with charging so much more for them.
The build quality of this vehicle is not up to Vauxhall's usual standards, it feel like a Friday afternoon job.
Various niggly faults have manifested themselves particularly with interior trim and fit and finish.
The nasty fake wood in the dash does the interior no favours at all, Vauxhall should have made more of a effort with the interiors of their vehicles in the first place.
On the positive side, the car is reasonably comfy, handles pretty well and is quiet and refined to drive, I would expect a standard CD player for the price though, even the rep favourite's LX model has this!
Fortunately the car is temporary otherwise I would have returned it to the manufacturer with the amount of faults I have found.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
