1972 Vauxhall Viva HC 4 door Deluxe 1.3 from UK and Ireland
Loads of character
Not an awful lot has gone wring with the car, just general wear and tear.
I had the brakes and clutch replaced soon after I got her.
There is a tear in the driver's seat.
The rear driver's side door is bubbling up around the wheel arch, but in the three years that I have had her, it hasn't gotten any worse.
This is the second Viva that I have owned, and I like it.
It has to be one of the most comfortable cars that I have driven. The suspension is very smooth and forgiving.
It is also probably one of the most economical I have had returning about 48 miles to the gallon at an average speed of 80 miles an hour. For a vehicle with the aerodynamics of a house-brick, I don't think that's too bad.
I can't really fault it overall.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
