2002 Vauxhall Omega CD 2.6 from UK and Ireland
Absolute luxury bargain
Battery failed, but it was the original.
Central locking motor on rear nearside passenger door failed.
Front shock absorber leaking, both fronts replaced.
Cambelt service carried out as a precaution.
Excellent value, found it by accident on Ebay as a dealer PX to clear, so took a chance and won it with a stupid low bid. All service books and bills. Rear seats never used as spare.
Drive 400 miles and feel as fresh as a daisy, cruise control great, fast and economical on the motorway, heavy on fuel around town. However it purrs along and is barely run in I have been told.
As others have mentioned, it seems to like higher octane fuel 99; holds gears longer before kick down, and better economy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
