Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Vauxhall Tigra coupe?

The Tigra gained a reputation for unreliability. There are problems with the electrics, engine, suspension and brakes

So, your first priority should be to look for a full service history, as it shows the car has been cared for and should ward off one major headache, head gasket problems. Look for sludge on the inside of the oil filler cap, too; as long as there's none there, you should be fine. The cambelt also needs changing every 40,000 miles, so check when it was last done.
