Cars We Buy: Vauxhall
British car makers Vauxhall have a long history that goes back to 1857 when Alex Wilson founded it as a company that built pumps and marine engines. However, in 1903 they would build their first automobile equipped with a 5 HP engine but no reverse gears. Gradually the cars became more popular, so in 1907 the company changed its name from "Vauxhall Motors" to just plain old "Vauxhall".
In post-war Britain, Vauxhall Motors needed to find a way to appeal more broadly for them not only to survive but thrive. After all, cars were the new hot commodity, and no one could make enough of these vehicles that people so urgently wanted just yet. So they pursued mass-production methods at any cost - even if it meant cutting corners on quality control measures like rustproofing, which was already starting to become an issue everywhere as steel became scarce during wartime conditions due to strategic supply concerns by allied forces or other manufacturing guidelines set forth from aiding nations with their own industrial capabilities being deployed elsewhere depending upon necessity's call (such as food rationing).

Although faced with a wave of consumer dissatisfaction back in the UK, Vauxhall managed to reduce the gap between them and Ford with the launch of the 2004 Astra and become one of the most important car manufacturers in Britain.
The most popular types of Vauxhall cars are Corsa, Zafira, Astra, Insignia, Meriva and Mokka.
