1991 Vauxhall Carlton GLI 2.0 from UK and Ireland
Fast and fun, but can be expensive to run
Brake pipes needed replacing to pass MOT at 97000.
Fuel pump went at 99000.
Was given this car for nothing. Then gave a friend £500 for it. Not counting 4 new tyres, battery and back end of exhaust. I have spent over £600 keeping it on the road.
Quick car. Really liked the feel of rear wheel drive. Fun in the wet/ice (!).
Comfortable if a bit soft spring-ed, after 100000 miles and felt safe in it.
Would still have it now, but needed more reliability.
Have now bought a 1998 Rover 620Si.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
