Oldroverboy in rainy west wales here. got an epica diesel and an aveo lt, sold my lacetti sw last year after building a house and using it for everything. went when started to run badly (stuttering at about 30-40mph)and couldn't cure. PS...garage couldn't cure either! Other fault was central locking had a mind of its own when it rained....
but excellent fuel economy, and very qick and reasonably sure footed on motorways and a roads. car always serviced properly, not egr valve or fuel filter, not air filter or airflow, catalyst ok no faults shown on ecu, all this started within 1 month of expiry of warranty. but no complaints, cost peanuts and got good price as trade in.
cost of ownership was about £100 a week so not too unhappy especially after the work it did.
Got new bulbs much better than standard ones! Car still goin great seems to be all captiva owners on here rite enuff! Must say im liking this new aveo and hope rs models for this and spark get launched!
