1998 Vauxhall Tigra Coupe 1.4 16v from UK and Ireland
Love it too bits
Only had the car three months when I was hit head on my some moron going too fast. Car looked a right off, but was glad to see it repaired as good as new only for two months later to be run off the road by a drink driver, maybe it is the color (red). This time it looked worse than before and was border line, but got repaired. Seemed to run a little sluggish after that then the timing belt went!!! Luckily was covered under warranty so was repaired, but not properly so went again and was advised that it would need to be the last time the cylinder head is skimmed as next time engine would need to be written off, I mean this was the garages fault was it not!!! Seems to be running ok now apart from air bag light on, but it can wait. Fuel line came loose also causing a leak so wasn't happy about that apart from that all ok.
No matter what problems I have had with the car I love it too bits and agree that it really does turn heads, I have even had people I am some sort of rich kid due to the car. Only downfall is it's an automatic, but was too good to turn down. Would definitely buy a manual one next time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
