Reliability of the Opel Adam

The ADAC breakdown statistics determine which Opel models are the most reliable and which have broken down most – a good help when buying a used Opel Adam.

In the statistics for 2020, all the breakdowns for which the German Yellow Angels had to move out in 2019 were recorded and evaluated. There is enough data available that gives an objective picture of the reliability of the Opel Adam.
