1988 Vauxhall Nova GTE 1600i ohv from UK and Ireland
Quick, cheap, fun easy to repair
C.V boots worn.
Fuel tank rotten.
Rear brake drums distorted.
Bottom of doors rotten.
Rear arches scabby.
Front brake disks distorted.
The faults with my car seem a lot, but what can you expect for a car that's 14 years old?.
The engine is fantastic.
The Reliability of the car is great given that she has had to put up with my lead foot and late mornings.
Surprise's and even annoys newer car owners. eg VTR's.
My advice to anyone considering to buy one is that you should get a GSI not a GTE simply because it newer. rot is a issue here.
Watch out for boy racer abuse. (OK me)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
