Cheap windscreen replacement Opel Meriva
From 2003 to 2017, the compact MPV Opel Meriva was an important model for the originally German car brand Opel. Although the car is currently not new to get, there are many of them on the road. If you own this model and are looking for a cheap windscreen replacement for the Opel Meriva, for example due to an accident or rubble, then we have good news for you. Although it is very expensive to replace an Opel Meriva windscreen at a brand dealer, you can save a lot by ordering from us. You can read below how this works and how we keep these prices low. Before we tell you more about this, we will discuss the specifications of the Opel Meriva and briefly discuss the special history of Opel.
Opel more than 100 years car builder
Although Opel only made sewing machines when it was founded in 1862, other products were soon added. In Rüsselsheim am Main, Germany, founder Adam Opel
started manufacturing bicycles in 1886 under pressure from his five sons. After Adam Opel died in 1895, his sons and widow took over the company. Although Adam Opel did not want to produce cars, his descendants thought differently about this. The first Opel car
was already made in 1899 and within ten years the company was able to profile itself as a car maker who could deliver high quality for a relatively low price.
What is more, Opel was acquired by the American General Motors as early as 1929. This made it one of the first major European companies to take full American control. Under the leadership of General Motors, Opel has grown into a leading car brand across most of Europe. Although this obviously got a big hit during the Second World War, Opel was able to recover quickly with the help of their American parent company. Opel was the market leader in Germany and various other European countries for a long time after that.
In the years after the war, iconic models were also introduced, all of which had a major impact on the entire car industry. For example, almost everyone will know one or more of the following models:
Although Opel was one of Europe's best-selling car brands in those first post-war decades, it slowly but surely went downhill. After 1999, no profits were made on the car brand in any accounting year. Certainly after the financial crisis that started in 2008, the situation became untenable for General Motors. In 2017, this ultimately led to the sale of the Opel car brand to the French PSA Group, which included Peugeot and Citroën for some time.
For the sale of Opel by General Motors, many German car brand models were also sold as, for example, Chevrolet and Chrysler. Now that Opel has been acquired, more and more new models are being introduced which are also for sale as rebatched versions as Peugeot and Citroen. The Opel Meriva is a good example of this. This compact MPV was also sold as the Chevrolet Meriva, while the successor to the Meriva, the Opel Crossland X, shares many parts and techniques with the Citroën C3 Aircross and Peugeot 2008.
The two generations Opel Meriva or Vauxhall Meriva
The first generation of Opel Meriva, also known as Meriva A, was available in 2003. This model shows strong similarities with both Opel Corsa C and Opel Zafira. For example, the chassis and other parts of the Corsa C were used, while the flexible interior of the Zafira was taken over. The car was put on the market as a mini MPV, this because it is a spacious and quite large car. It can accommodate up to five people and not seven, such as a regular MPV. What is particularly handy about the car is that the layout is very easy to change and that, for example, all three rear seats can move independently and can be folded down. The Opel Meriva A was given a facelift in 2006 so that the car looked a little more sporty.
The Opel Meriva B was subsequently introduced in 2010. This car was called a compact MPV and this second generation of the Meriva is a bit larger and more spacious than the first. The Opel Zafira Tourer, the Opel Astra and the Opel Insignia have had a great influence on the development of the Opel Meriva B. A special feature of this second generation of Meriva is that the rear doors are 'suicide doors', or FlexDoors. By placing the suspension of the rear doors at the rear, the car looks very special when the four doors are open. In 2017 the production of the Meriva was stopped and this model was replaced by the Opel Crossland X. Incidentally, it does not matter which generation or version of this car you have if you want the windscreen replacement of your Opel Meriva to be done through us. The windscreen of all versions can be ordered quickly and easily via us.
How can the windscreen replacement of the Opel Meriva be so cheap?
In the first instance, a windscreen with a brand logo may only be sold by authorised dealers. In this way, the automakers have given themselves a monopoly position and can ask for more for the windscreen replacement of an Opel Meriva than is strictly necessary. Through us, however, you can order after market car windows. These car windows are made in exactly the same factory and are therefore of exactly the same high quality. However, in the absence of a brand logo, they can also be sold by non-brand dealers, which means that the price for this fine automotive glass is considerably lower for you.
How much does it cost to replace an Opel Meriva windscreen?
How much you spend on replacing a car window depends on many factors. Firstly, these prices vary according to brand and model. Secondly, extra options are taken into account in the price. For example, a coating or sensors in the car window will result in an extra charge. In all cases, however, it applies that our price is lower than that of brand dealers and our competitors. As a result, the car window replacement without insurance is the most advantageous through us. Incidentally, even with additional insurance, it is often wise to pay for the windscreen replacement of your Opel Meriva yourself. The increased premium or the excess to be paid is often more expensive than what you have to pay through us when replacing the windscreen.
If you have the knowledge to replace the windscreen of the Opel Meriva yourself, you can order the windscreen and related products through us. Do you not have this knowledge in house? Then you can count on our FOCWA certified partners. They will be happy to come and replace the Opel Meriva windscreen on site. In both cases you are much cheaper than at a brand dealer. So order the car window you need today so that you can quickly get back on the road safely.
