I have owned this car for 6 months it is one of the best cars i have had it constantly does about 45mpg have just had it serviced and a sensor replaced. I have two chilren and the copes with anything. will definety have another one
What can I say about the GSi well firstly Mr Clarkson from TopGear your a plonker I'm not half dead because I have an MPV. Us lesser mortals have to balance family needs with our own desires for fun the GSi for fills this in every way. You can burn off a boy racer yet get all your holiday gear in without having to bury the kids and we all know how important it is to have happy kids on a long trip!! As for the fuel consumption let me see 2.0li turbo 190bhp 0-60 in 7.7 and 7 seats ?????? well its better than my friends BMW 320 and still quicker. Oh safety is it 8 or 10 air bags not sure but these a lot plus traction control and abs to keep you out of trouble. One other thing turbo lag were is it??? You barly notice the turbo kick in its so smooth. So men buy one and use it yourself and have some fun you can get the wife a Reliant Robin for the shopping. Whats that dear I have to use the kids wheelie shoes for work tomorrow. Not again!!!
Company car, new Jan 2005. in 47000 miles It has never let us down, the only thing that has gone wrong was the glow plugs recently, and the windscreen washers when it was nearly new. The diesel engined Vauxhalls do not suffer any of the cutting out problems that the petrol engined ones do. The 2.0 and 1.9 deisel engines are actually Fiat engines and are very good. For space and practicality it is the best car I have had. Although it is not the most luxurious it is pretty robust inside and nothing has broken. It will never win any races but will go along all day at 80mph whilst doing about 45mpg and that is fully loaded up. The only complaints and they are fairly minor are that the windscreen wipers are clearly designed for left hand drive - especially the back one (which needs to be on all the time if you are driving in the rain) and they do not have adjustable intermittant wipe which my 2001 Mondeo (the worst car I ever had) did have.
I have had this car for 3 years from a year old. Great car but be aware from the following faults:
Hot weather, particularily during the summer months:
Alarm system even when not locked all windows down at 3am in a morning can activate, we live in a remote location.
Alarm system locked will activate especially over 30 degrees centrigrade, try it in Tesco during a hot day!!! Starter motor engaged whilst driving down the road resulting in a £500 bill from Vauxhall, luckily this was covered by their 60k 3 years warranty, thank god!
Above all brilliant my 2.0 dti Zafira
