1979 Vauxhall Cavalier 2000GL 2.0 from UK and Ireland
A sensible low cost classic
Well nothing really has gone wrong with the car - when I bought it, it needed some fiddling. There was an immobiliser fitted which prevented the car from starting and someone had put the plug leads on the wrong way. Once these were sorted the car has been purring happily and starts without the needs for the choke.
The car is in very good condition for it's age with very little rust.
A very under-rated car. Coil sprung rear axle means it is very comfortable and handles really well. It is quite prone to be tail happy, which is good if you like that sort of thing, but not so good if you aren't used to it!
Seats are quite comfortable and the interior in general is very welcoming.
If you get a good one, buy it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
