The car is a serious bargain for the specification although faults will be very costly to rectify
Shortly after getting the car it seems to have developed a gearbox fault when low power is applied, for example crawling in traffic/roadworks. The car sometimes fails to be in a gear and other times changes from what I think is second gear to fourth gear with a loud clunk. Most times the "Automatic Gearbox" message appears.
After owning a 1994 Omega 2.0 CD Estate (manual) and considering this car as one of the best cars I have ever had I decided to buy another Omega and chose the feature filled Omega CDX on a V Registration.
This year I believe the last one with the original style interior before Vauxhall destroyed later models with cheap and nasty plastic interiors.
I am a little disappointed with the performance of the car and while I like the concept of an Automatic gearbox for ease and comfort, the power doesn't seem to be any more than my 2 litre manual Omega was.
The car also has a potential gearbox fault as I have noted other people mentioning on this model (and I would appreciate any advise on what it can be).
I have been using my Local Lookers dealership for many years and I am very pleased with the service they provide and their knowledge of the vehicle, however I visited another lookers dealership in my area some time ago and I was less than impressed - I think it depends which one you go to whether or not they do a good job.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
