    NO, Vauxhall and opel are both owned by General Motors, maybe they are the same, but holden in australia isn't. Holden have some cars that are made by opel and vauxhall though. They are all owned by General Motors

    Exactly, kid. Opel and Vauxhaull are virtually the same company. Similar to Chevy Trucks/GMC. Holden is not the same, it just shares some platforms.

    Opel is called Opel all over the world, only not in England.
    Maybe it's got to do with English people liking the germans so much! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    Just FYI, the new saturn L-Series is actually 100% opel. GM just rebadges them, and sends them out the door. It's really funny to listen to the salespeople tell you how everything's "upgraded."

    The Caddy Catera was an Opel too.

    Spyder757
