An outstanding car destined to become a Classic
ECU went in Almeria Spain in April 2004 whilst on a 6 week touring holiday of Europe with a Abbey 16 Ft 5 Berth Caravan in tow. Opel Dealer supplied and fitted a new one for an overall cost of £500.00.
Replaced cam shaft and refaced Head before trip as Head gasket blowing and engine in need of a clean up due to very high mileage.
Car used as a reps car and was averaging 50,000 miles a year until August 2003.
The level of comfort in my Carlton CDX makes it impossible for me to find a replacement for towing my Caravan. Although my wife owns an Omega GLS 2 Ltr the comfort level of the Omega is so much lower.
I am at present going to replace the Oil pump due to low oil pressure and have the Boot lid resprayed as the paint finish is blistered.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
