1993 Vauxhall Carlton Diplomat 2.0L from UK and Ireland
Excellent, well worth the money back in 1993
Well the fuel pump recently went; it's £210 including VAT from a main dealer... and the air con gave up on a life a few months ago; that's too much to repair, so I didn't bother. Living up north it's not a problem to be honest.
A 2.0L automatic - it's much better than that bloody 1.3 Escort that we had... and with its sport mode, it does generally beat the ass of most of the new Mercs and BMW's. Considering its had 285,000 on the clock, it's pretty good.. believe it or not it's beaten an xr3i in its day... now its mainly used for taking relatives on days out.. unfortunately.
Having said that, it's the best car I've ever owned, and probably will ever own. I just wish Vauxhall would make it again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
