1995 Vauxhall Cavalier CDX V6 2.5 V6 petrol from UK and Ireland
Nothing at all.
This is my fourth mk3 Cavalier and my second with the V6 engine. I wanted to replace my 2.0 Cav with a newer model and I saw this one at a dealer with a full Vsh and air-con etc at a reasonable price.
I have had the car for six weeks and have not had to spend a single penny on it other than for petrol. Usually with my cars something breaks in the first week ie exhaust etc.
Have so far driven it from Kent to South Devon and also to Cardiff and back in a day with no hints of any problems. Hope it stays that way.
Excellent car though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

A year on from buying the car, still nothing at all has gone wrong, even with it now on the wrong side of 95,000 miles.
The air con is very effective, and indispensible at this time of year.
The car has also just this week passed its MOT with no recommended comments at all (that's a first for one of my cars).

HOW do you find the MPG on the V6 compared with the 2.0 ecotec???

I average 30 mpg out of this one. If you really hammer it with the aircon on it can drop as low as 23, but normally 28-31.
My old 2.0 8v averages 32, and my brothers 2.0 16v ecotec does 33- 34. Not a huge difference really.

I have just bought a V6 CDX Cavalier, and will be dropping the lump in Astra Van. What do you think, will it work?
