Opel Vectra (1995 - 2002)
We say:
Despite going against the likes of the Galant and Accord, in reality, the Vectra is compact sized. A squeeze for 4, it had comprehensive specs including unique features like a stop watch. Wagons are attractive, and are more capacious than the sedan. Engines are rather noisy, the transmission confused and chassis unsorted. Ride is equally bumpy, especially from the back.

It has a German badge.
The rest of the car isn't great.
