1991 Vauxhall Carlton CDX 2.6 from UK and Ireland
A class car with high performance
The fuel sender unit needed replacing at 112,000 miles.
The 2.6 is a very fast car and handles very well, it will see off most cars. The only one that has given me a problem is a 528 BMW.
I have had it up to 147mph and it still wanted to go more.
I have had no problems apart from the fuel sender unit failing, which cost £160 to replace.
Fuel economy is good too, I can average 37 to the gallon doing motorway work and 25 to the gallon urban.
Insurance is relatively low, insurance group 13.
I have looked at getting a newer car, but I will have to go for a BMW or Mercedes to match the gadgets and comfort and spend thousands more to gain a few years.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
