are parts expensive
I have had a bad experience with a Holden Zafira built by Opel. When an alternatorgoes or it needs new spark plugs they cost a fortune.Likewise to replace the battery was much more expensive because it needed an imported one. Is this the same with the 1999 Barina also built by Opel?
parts cost comes down to your parts supplier. i have the opel built 96 barina, most places wanted between $200 AND $250 for the battery, got one through a better parts stockist for $130, it all comes down to how and where you look for them
