A car brand meant for the lower/middle working class. Trying to unrealisticly compete with BMW, AUDI and MERCEDES-BENZ.
When newly bought its often a good buy, but after a few years the misery starts.
Known for corrosion + high wear and tear of mechanical parts like steering, suspension and brakes. Parts are, despite the economic range there in, reasonably high priced. Average maintenance costs €2000 a year.
OPEL has had and is having a difficult time in the car industry because of a huge image problem. BMW, AUDI and MERCEDES-BENZ are currently also producing in the lower/middle working class range and there for a unmatched competitor for OPEL.
"Oh you have a opel...right"
"Opel?...don't they corrode?"
"Opel?..couldn't afford a BMW?"
European car manufacturer, pretty much the main branch of GM
in Europe along with Saab
Also known as Vauxhall in the UK, Holden in Australia and Chevrolet in South America. (the Chevy models are slightly different, such as estate and saloon versions of the Corsa, which aren't available in Europe.)
They make almost any type of car and is mainly aimed at the middle-class, along with Ford. Despite the shit reputation it seems to have on here, they do make some decent looking cars, such as the Vectra and their sports car, the VX220. They aren't rust-on-wheels anymore like they were 20 years ago.
Some Opel cars also make it into America every now and again, such as the Sintra, a total failure of a people carrier in Europe but is doing remarkably well under three different brands in America.
Astra - small family car
Vectra - repmobile
Vivaro - Transit equivalent
Corsa - hatchback
Zafira - people carrier
Frontera - SUV
VX220 - sports coupe
German car brand acquired by General motors in 1926 and merged with Bentley's rival Vauxhall
to form POS lower class cars for the poor. Rusty as hell. German efficiency turned into american mass-produced crap. Sold in Europe, except re-badged as Vauxhall in the UK

Opel Manta B
Opel Manta GTE
Opel Lotus Omega (world's fastest saloon 1990-1998, better known as Vauxhall Lotus
