1986 Vauxhall Carlton GL 1.8 from UK and Ireland


A solid, reliable, cheap workhorse


High tension leads failed at 50,000 miles.

Shock Absorber gave out at 35,000 miles.

General Comments:

This is a very reliable car which I have taken to Spain and France many times.

It carries the luggage and the passengers with ease and delivers reasonable economy too. It has always passed its MOT with ease too.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
