Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Vauxhall Agila estate?
Vauxhall has a fairly unspectacular record on reliability, usually achieving mid-table respectability in our regular reliability surveys.
It always pays to be cautious, though. Clutches on the Agila need to be watched as they can give out as early as 50,000 miles, and the central locking is prone to failures, too. So, if your chosen car has it, check it's working properly.
Suspension clonks are also common on the Agila, but there's no need to panic unduly if your chosen car is afflicted. Usually, new bushes or a generous application of grease is enough to solve the problem.
