1980 Vauxhall Chevette L 1.3 petrol from UK and Ireland
A great little car that I wish they were still making now
Corrosion on front wings.
Corrosion on sills.
Oil leak on front crank pulley.
Gearbox lay shaft bearing failure.
Starter motor solenoid faulty.
O/s inner sills badly corroded. this caused the jacking point to collapse and the car had to be scrapped.
The performance of the car is adequate for its age.
The fuel economy is very good.
It was the most reliable car I have ever owned.
Corrosion was the factor which ultimately ended its use
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
