|"Is this all real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"
The subject of this article is of a real-life person, place, group, company, product, or creative work that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source. The Harry Potter Wiki is written from the perspective that all information presented in canon is true (e.g., Hogwarts really exists), and, as such, details contained in this article may differ from real world facts.
Vauxhall is a British car manufacturing company owned by General Motors. The Dursley family owned an estate car from this company, which they used to drive to a Zoo for Dudley's eleventh birthday on 23 June, 1991.
Behind the scenes
- The car seen in the Dursley family's driveway in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is a 2000 Vauxhall Vectra estate (as was every car on the street)[before the credits they all appear to be vauxhall cavalier Mk3]. This is inconsistent with the canonical timeline, as the novel is set in 1991 and 1992.
- The Dursley's car in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is a 2008 Vauxhall Vectra Sedan, which is also inconsistent with the canonical timeline, as that scene was set in 1997.
