1987 Vauxhall Nova Merit 1.2 petrol from UK and Ireland
Cheap, dull, overrated hatchback
Warped brake discs on purchase - something to watch for.
General spots of rust (typical old Vauxhall).
Cheap to insure but the engine is underpowered. Far too basic and badly needs a 5th gear! Recommend the 1400 and 1600cc.
Ideal if all you want is a car to get you from A to B - useless if you are looking for a fun car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
