ProComfort, style, adaptability

ContraHaven't found any yet!

Before I start this opinion I want to make it clear that this is NOT a technical ‘car’ opinion. I don’t drive and I have minimal knowledge of the workings of the humble motorcar, so this one is written strictly from the passenger’s point of view! I’ll begin at the beginning, always a good place...

The last time my company car came up for review, I had to find a vehicle that would still assist me to do my job (IT Field Support), but also able to carry my family of five kids. After carefully looking into price, features and versatility the Zafira came out as a clear winner, here is why...

ProPlenty of grunt, comfortable, good handling

ContraEGR system poorly designed

OK, Shall we start with a few comments? This is my second Zafira ('54 plate 2.0DTi Energy) - the first was a 1.6 petrol that just had no get up and go, and considering I do approx. 500 miles a week that just wasn't going to work. I thought I'd stick with the zafira for two reasons - one is that...

The Zafira SRi 2.0DTi was the 1st modern car to come to my home since 1981, and it doesn't dissapoint! Although initially dubious about buying a new car, this one came up second hand with £1000 worth of black leather seats (The front two are heated), bodykit, dvd player AND the diesel engine I...

“Import Zafira”

published 28/09/2003

ProSeating Versitility / Interior Space

ContraSpare Wheel / Blind Spot due to A Pillars

I decided to buy an MPV when my third child was born and we could no longer fit in our old Nissan Sunny. It was the large boot or the option of two extra seats that clinched it for me. I also worked at a port where the Zafira's were imported and they were described to me as 'well put together' by...

Vauxhall Zafira Elegance 2.0 DTI I originally meant to write this report 7 months ago,immediately after taking delivery of my new Zaffy as I was so impressed with it. Now that it is run in after covering some 10,000 miles,I feel I am in a better position to pass comment. From the outset,I had...

“Head over Heart Purchase”

published 31/05/2007

ProEconomical, does what it sets out to do.

ContraBoring. Poorly Equipped

This was a 16k three-year-old second-hand purchase very much as a case of head over heart. It is not the most charismatic of vehicles, and is somewhat basic by modern standards. It fulfills the brief, though, in that it has a wheel at each corner and gets three adults and four progeny from A to B...

Introduction ---------------- In 2003 I took the option to opt out of our company car scheme and use an allowance to purchase my own vehicle. I bought a Vauxhall Zafira Elegance 2.0 DTi from new in July 2003. This was the top of the range diesel and I added to it Vauxhall's Technical pack, Winter...

This seemed the perfect car for our family. We've got 3 kids and can fit them all in the middle row with car seats when more storage is needed (the middle seat has lap belt only so you are limited with some child seats). On the other hand you can fit a friend and two extra kids with a little...

ContraPoor build quality

Some mixed feelings about my Zafira. I've had it now for nine months and 10,000 miles, having bought it as a "nearly new" (four months and 8,000 miles old) at one of the big car supermarkets. I had spent a couple of months making my decision on which load lugger to buy, and test drove a number of...

We had been planning to buy a second hand people carrier like a Ford Galaxy or Seat Alhambra for about £10,000. However after looking at what we would get for our money (something about three years old), we discovered that for an extra two or three thousand pounds we could buy a brand new...

I bought my Zafira as new/build to order from Jamjar.com in January 2003 (facelift year), though it wasn't delivered 'til mid April. Having looked at the model overviews, I noticed that the diesel version actually included items such as ABS, which is a paid for option in the petrol line-up...

I have had this car for 18 months (it was 2 years old when bought) so now feel qualified to comment on it. It was bought due to the imminent arrival of our fourth child.
