1984 Vauxhall CavalierReview
Cavalier 1.8cdi — This car really surprised me. I didnt really want it, but I couldnt afford to run my Rover so I swapped it with a mate for this. What a nice car! Behind the bland rep looks was a punchy 1.8 engine, the most comfortable seats ever, a dashboard like an airliner;dials and switches everywhere, lots of toys and a thumping stereo! I put SRi suspension on it and low profile tyres, shame it was such a yukky colour, metalic chocolate poo brown!
Pros: really comfortable, well equipped and quick
Cons: colour(?!!) weak cam belts, although no engine damage when it broke
