Every vauxhall I have owned has ended up in the scrapyard.
My Dad never had a Marina but didn't escape the BL effect entirely as he bought an Austin Maxi instead. Aside from from being one of the most unfortunate looking cars ever made, it needed a new gearbox after 60,000 miles and began to dissolve after a few years.I feel l left out that we never had a Marina now!
Glad to help.This thread has helped me decide what I'm going to do for the wife's next car.
I was considering a used car for the first time in years.
Sod the risk associated with that, I'm going to stick with a brand new lease motor.
agreed ! i had a big thirsty petrol one too. and yeah, on the motor way you could see the needle reducing as is slurped back the fuel quicker than a rocket heading for the moon. by far my worse car ever purely based on the terrible MPGJeep Cherokee. Whoever invented that hated the environment. I could see the petrol needle moving.
I had a Grand Cherokee which averaged 18.4mpg in the 3,200 miles that I owned it for. I could live with that but mine was dreadfully unreliable and obviously had been so earlier in it's life too judging by some of the bodged repairs that we uncovered.i had a big thirsty petrol one too. and yeah, on the motor way you could see the needle reducing as is slurped back the fuel quicker than a rocket heading for the moon. by far my worse car ever purely based on the terrible MPG
i never had mine long enough to have any problems with ! i think it lasted two months (i had the grand too) and i just pottered about london in it mostly.I rather liked the car though and would have had another if it were a more reliable example
