1990 Vauxhall Rascal 1.0 from UK and Ireland
The world's greatest little van
You will be surprised how much room is in the back. Very reliable, very economical & cheap tax, and spares are cheap too.
Not the most comfortable van. I'm six foot tall & fit in the driver's seat pretty well. Long drives are slow; 65mph going steady, but driving & parking round town is a breeze, Double sliding doors are very handy. It carries a fair bit of weight too.
Rust is just starting to come through the wheel arches, but the underneath is solid.
I should have bought this van long ago for my business.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi I purchased a vauxhall rascal today (26/3/2007) and I'm over the moon with her she has the odd bits of rust here and there, but nothing major. I am surprised at the room in the back larger than my escort van and much cheaper to run.
!!ALL HAIL THE RASCAL!!

I have just purchaced a 1993 rascal I am amazed at then room in the back plus three doors. I normally drive an automatic, but I think the gear box is smooth and easy to use a great little van a new convert.

Had a rascal for 4 months now and find her very pleasuring to drive. Had a new engine in after 2 weeks of owning her, but no problems since. Did a 600 mile round trip in her and was better than my diesel escort. Can't believe how good they are, always on 2 wheels LOL.
