1991 Vauxhall Nova Merit 1.2 from UK and Ireland
A very nippy, cheap first car
Since I have had the car, I have not had any major problems. The rear bumper was a bit loose, so that had to be properly secured.
No other problems.
The previous owner had put a racing air filter and muffler on the car, and this increases performance by a mile.
For a 1.2, I am sure this car can keep up with the SR version, as acceleration is incredible for a such a small engine.
I have Recaro seats in the front of mine, which is a more of a snug fit when pushing through the corners.
However, the suspension is a little hard, and back seat passengers must mind their head on the roof!!!
Good, cheap, nippy little car, but are surprisingly hard to find one in good condition.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
