1989 Vauxhall Carlton CDX 2.0 from UK and Ireland
OK, but should have bought a Senator
Battery went flat at any inconvenient time.
Annoying bits of rust.
Handbrake seized up (frequently).
Fuel lines rotted out.
Anti-roll bar bushes collapsed.
Cruise control packed up (badly corroded engine connector).
Driver's electric window mechanism failed (pulled fixing rivets right out of the door panel!)
On the whole a good car. Comfortable and well up there with other good German cars at least on the CDX.
Bodywork quality not all it might be. Usual useless GM handbrake. Comfortable and nice to drive - good handling.
Performance and economy a disappointment. Car is underpowered and fuel consumption figures show this as well
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
