1985 Vauxhall NovaReview

So Very Very Awful!!! — This was a astoundingly shocking car, owned for 6 whole weeks, was broken into 6 times in 3 weeks, brakes were poor at best, cost £450 pounds,sold it for £300 but was just glad to get rid of it. Awful!!!The next car was much better......

Pros: absoluteley nothing!

Cons: Everything!

Iconic 80's Supermini By Craig3405

I hate the sunroof squeak, it makes the build quality seem worse than a Saxo. The heating is poor. My final drive in the gearbox is too high, making motorways a chore. I actually find it hard to pa... Read More
