1993 Vauxhall Nova NovaVan 1.5 diesel from UK and Ireland
I have had this car for just over a year now, and it has been superb.
For a diesel it seems extremely quick!!
I have lowered the vehicle, colour coded bumpers & wingmirrors, also a nice set of alloys.
This car looks and performs superbly.
I can get about 300 miles out of £10 worth of fuel.
This car, I would recommend to anybody - although insurance is VERY COSTLY. For the average 19-22 year old this car will cost cost around £950 - £1400 third party fire & theft in the UK.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

No way did you get 300 miles out of £10 of petrol.
It is diesel not petrol so you can.
You got ripped off big time on your insurance :O.
I've got a highly modded SR (lowered, 15" alloys, stainless zorst, K&N, GSi skirts, GTE rear bumper "flick" etc etc...),and it only cost me £250 to insure last year at the age of 21! It gone up now to £320 but only 'cos I've fitted a nice big Weber carb :)
Try a specialist insurance company, and join the PNG to get a further discount! (PNG = Performance Nova Group)
300 miles to £10 is still about 130 mpg. Absolutely impossible.
I filled my nova TD to the neck, did exactly 100 miles and couldn't get £4 back into it.
