did you guys know that the non turbo motor in the calibra's was the same one as in a SAAB, both are GM.
Exactly my point. A lot of the engines are now developed/built by GM Powertrain which is a combined effort of Vauxhall,opel,saab,fiat. The diesel engines used in the UK spec Vectra are available in Alfas and Saabs, also right through to the Fiat Ducato van.

And I think I said before that the Saab 9-3 uses the same 2.8 V6 turbo as the Vectra VXR.

The Barina and Viva are still thought of as Holdens by most people even though they are basically 4 year old Daewoo designs!!!

yah and a quality car it is too, ppl knock korean cars as throw away, and when they change a badge on the front to holden they think it is going to survive and not be a prob, but in real fact it is a daewoo, just a diffrent chrome object on teh front,
my mum owns a daewoo laccetti (holden viva, 4 door sedan) and its great it only cost use 14 grand with 5000kms on it from holden/daewoo (demo car) with all the optional extras that holden has on the viva
