1991 Vauxhall Nova SR 1.4 from UK and Ireland
Great - If you don't care about your image
The usual wear and tear.
Mould growing in the head-lamps.
Central locking playing up.
Oil leaking and smoking.
Excessive seat wear.
It's a typical Nova, cheap and cheerful.
Nova's have a bad stigma attached to them. They are cheap and rattly inside, at speed it's just plain awful. The 1.4 engine is slow and they just should not have released such an outdated carburetter engine in the 90's!!!
The SR is just a standard Nova with black sprayed wheels, arguably up-rated suspension, less comfortable seats and a very bad image from boy-racers.
Cheap and nasty, burn them all!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
