1986 Vauxhall Cavalier L 1.6 diesel from UK and Ireland
Good car to keep you fit!!!
This is a terrible example of a naturally aspirated diesel car, the Vauxhall diesel engine is merely a petrol engine converted to diesel, unlike Ford who designed an engine from scratch, which incidently was bombproof. The old Vauxhall, even with the biggest battery and new glow plugs struggles to start from cold.
Poor performance, engine too small for the size of the car and needs to be worked hard, and is also woefully undercooled.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
