1986 Opel KadettReview
Ari writes:

Nice Small Car. — Performance: Small car, small engine, small fuel consumption Ordinary car for it's time and was aerodynamically designed for it's age and size and price range. Good daily driver. I had mine over 15 years ago, so it was much newer then. But it wasn't a bad car. Really roomy trunk for the size of the car and was cheap to run. The GSi version is really cool still, even mine was a basic model.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Roominess, fuel economy, modern styling for the time

Cons: The engine in my car was too small, the GSi model is nicer.
