Water pump at 37K miles. All other problems have been minor (eg bulbs failing).
Amazing performance especially at top end (3rd gear will give over 115mph before redline, top in 5th is quoted at 147mph). Economy not too bad (26 to 33 mpg). Servicing by Vauxhall agents is not much more than normal Cavs (e.g 2 litre). Looks smart (white with fan blade alloys and small boot spoiler).
Downsides are insurance (Grp 16) and handling which although better than "standard" Cavs is still not as good as it should be for this amount of performance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
