1990 Vauxhall Carlton CDI 2.0 from UK and Ireland
The head gasket has gone, resulting in a thirst for oil and water.
The wiring to the ignition recently caught fire, but I simply replaced it with a new peice and it works fine.
The aluminium block has a crack in it so it looses fresh oil!
The seats unfortunately, have all fallen to peices as the cloth has all fallen off them.
The rear axle has twisted a little so a whining noise occurs when you turn to the right.
The car is so easy to fix with bits you may have lying around your workshop!
It will carry up to 1/2 a tonne of cement in the boot with 5 people before the wheels catch the arches, so it is a great workshop.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
