Used Opel Zafira II (2005-14). Cost of repair, access to parts


Due to the connection with Astra, the car is easy and inexpensive to repair, and the availability of cheap parts – without problems.

Among petrol drivers, the 1.8 / 140 KM version is worth recommending – it is durable, has enough power and does not consume too much fuel. On the other hand, in the case of turbodiesels, it is worth looking for the Fiat 1.9 (preferably with 120 or 150 HP). Variant 1.7 (Isuzu) turns out to be the most popular, but it has average durability (very expensive parts). The car is not very urgent, but you have to watch out for unstable electronics, as well as the M32 manual gearbox – poor durability of the bearings. Fortunately, the choice of cars is still large and you can still find well-preserved cars.

Recommended engines: 1.6, 1.8, 1.9 cdti

Advantage

Lots of cars on the market, wide selection of cheap parts, functional interior, good value for money.

Minuses

Lots of used articles (diesel), lots of small explosions, bad electronics.
