    Default Why Vauxhalls?

    Following on from this thread. Why has everyone stuck in the main to Vauxhalls?

    For me it was simple. My dad used to work at the plant so I got a discount on the finance to by my first car. A Chevette.

    Then I just stuck with them apart from a miserable three years when I owned an Escort Diesel.

    The Partners scheme then kept me loyal for three cars but the current one was bought second hand. Could have had anything from a BMW to a Mazda 6.

    Between me and the missus we've owned 14 Griffin badged cars out of the 17 cars purchased.

    So why Vauxhalls?

    Purely due to value for money and depreciation, I would buy German for quality.
