Re: Car = dead

Really?

1999 Vecra 2.0 petrol original battery died in 2010.
11 nordic winters, 320000km.

I see no improvement in battery tech ;)

Re: 1.4t vs 1.6 diesel

1.6T auto hatch drives between 35 and 55 mpg.

55mpg = delightful autumn cruise on motorway


+ cost of speeding tickets!!! :)

Re: 1.4t vs 1.6 diesel

1.0T does not have auto box and is missing a cylinder. Based on your intrest find a 1.6D with auto box that has nice and quiet cold start. My colleague just bought a 1.6D auto estate with 120k km on clock (2018 registrered) and is more than pleased. Avg cons 4,2l/100km so far. Other friend of mine b...

Re: Disabling parking sensors

Front and rear speakers are used for parking sensor beeping sound.

Re: 1.6t vs 1.4t

Actually the part that I love about the 1.6T is cruising 80km/h at 1500rpm and accelerating after speed limit. It does not even usually downshift and starts pulling like a diesel does.

LSPI is not known issue for 1.6 SIDI. This engine has been around for 7 years or so.

Re: Right Rear turn indicator failure

Re: Extended warranty

I have warranty by Opel 4 years / 120000km.
I´ve found out that there´s comperhensive insurance packages that offer technical failure insurance cars up to 6 years / 130000km.

Aren´t there similar insurance products available in your region?
