1991 Vauxhall Calibra 2.0 8v from UK and Ireland
Pile of rubbish
Engine blew up after 15 miles of driving it. I was not driving it mad. Was just driving along then a big bang the clouds of smoke and oil.
This car looked fantastic when I picked it up.
When I got the car to a garage they found that a piston had shattered causing the engine to die. They informed me also that the car was rotten on the underside and should no have been on the road as it was a "death Trap".
The garage even took pity on me and didn't charge me for thier findings.
I contacted the guy that sold it to me and wanted nothing to do with it, so I lost out on £1000 after 15 miles of ownership.
So the car had to be scrapped.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

You may well be entitled to your £1000 back, depending on the circumstances. Look into it.

I bought the car on Ebay which is something that I will never do again so I don't have a leg to stand on. I contacted ebay about this and they said that I should have taken a closer look at the car before I paid for it.
Also as I paid cash I could not even cancel a cheque.
