When there were convoys of huge coal lorries on the M18 I decided the only safe way to pass them was to accelerate from something near legal speed for a few seconds and then let the speed drop back. Needless to say a nice policeman pulled me over and said that every time I overtook a lorry my speed exceeded 100 mph. He agreed that this was the safest way to avoid being hit by falling coal. He gave me a fixed penalty fine ignoring my higher speed. His parting shot as he left me was to say that… Read Full Review

Possibly the best car vauxhall ever built, mine was an early model I brought it with 80k on the clock at 2 and a bit years old, ex fleet car which had not been looked after I got it at trade price, but it needed an exhaust and water pump still a good deal! I wound the mileage to 160k in 3 yrs the only thing it needed was the water pump replacing again it never failed an MOT, but I did follow all the service intervals.
I miss that car, it was so practical.

In terms of its around town fuel consumption it more than redeems itself when on the motorways as it is relatively good on long trips. Without the stop start driving. Holds the road nicely and doesn't bounce around the way many cars do. The driver has a very safe connected feeling when steering. Can't be beaten. But then I have always been a fan of the vauxhal, my experience coming about in part from driving the Opel Kadett around on african roads… Read Full Review

I owned my v6 Vauxhall Cavalier red top for 5 years and if it wasn € t for the fact that I went on incapacity and couldn € t afford to keep it sitting idle, I would still have the car today. I am still looking for one that was as perfect as the one I had, I would recommend one to anybody, most of the cars I have owned were either v6 or straight 6, and the cavalier still comes out on top!… Read Full Review

Bought my V6 off E-Bay for £580,had to replace rear dics but for the price i was happy with it.
Had never driven one before, previous cars were nissan 200 sx, celica gti,nissan 200sx again and now this.
Was a bit sluggish in lower gears until I learnt how to drive it properly. The tall gears throw you off at first but once used to them are good.
First thing I did to mine when I bought it was an induction kit because I love the roar it gives, sounds like a scooby running lean...well… Read Full Review

I bought the Vauxhall Cavalier V6 after I could not find a Scorpio of any worth, I took this car for a test drive still a bit unsure, I went out for a decent drive, and to be fair, I found my self really enjoying the feel of the cavvy, the power took me by suprise, but so easy to handle, a pleasure with a bit of snap!!
Driving down a large dual carriageway, put my foot down a bit, well if I'm buying the car I want to know its not gonna blow up under pressure, Great, around an island to return… Read Full Review
