In the streets it is still always represented numerous. It seems to enjoy great popularity even with a minimum age of 8 years. What the reason may be?
Well, the last of a long series usually enjoy special care. The Omega with its front engine and rear-wheel driveactually based on the Opel Record series. Which Opel has made great again after the war.
Take a look at the prospectus of the last Omega. 50 pages, not counting the double. There then was something to photograph e.g. leather interior with wood-paneled center console and upholstered dashboard.
That's a bit like the good old days, some people dream of. Somehow dignified. Once again extravagance, before the Vectra/Signum fall victim to budget cuts. Well, it is not compact outside, but neither inside.
Outside, the Omega is no sensation. Too honest, and for example with the notchback not really the measure of all things. But then there is still the estate car, pardon caravan. If one had it merely called 'Sportback' or something like that.
Somehow car and brand really did not fit together. This has beat down the prices for used cars and that in turn the car brings a second (or perhaps only the first) spring. Little risk and much comfort.
Of course it has its quirks. Although less rust than the Omega A, but almost more electronics with corresponding problems. The petrol engines, very stable if one considers the V6.
The four-cylinders already will be claimed stronger. With enough maintenance (e.g. cam belts) they keep a long time. The diesel engines come from BMW also would have to be beyond doubt.
Of course the cars are now getting a bit long in the tooth and need more repairs. But the consumption should beat the of the successor. So badly thus can not be the CW-value.
There will be people who want to return back to their old Omega. It was just at the limit: nearly all security preventions, but not as many bells and whistles or savings. 04/11
