    Vehicle : Astra GTC VXR

    Trim : VXR

    Engine : 2.0t

    Year : 2013

    Default What an absolute sack

    In 3 weeks of owning my 2003 Vectra 2.0 Turbo it has spent more time in the garage than on my driveway.
    So far list of parts are as follows.
    1.ECU
    2.Front discs and pads.
    3.Timing chain and tensioner.
    4.Throttle body (as soon as it arrives)
    5.Starter motor has just burnt out tonight as stuck on.

    Going to get them to replace the CO2 sensor and check the cat out for the emissions light and having it going into limp mode there defo is something wrong.

    Now tomorrow it will be the 7th time in 3 weeks that its been back to the garage so i think its time for some compensation as this is appalling and now frustrating.

    Ive been a Vauxhall man since learning how to drive apart from owning a 3 series BMW and a Audi a4 but this must be the worst car i have ever owned so far.

    To be fair, the brakes you should have known about before you bought it mate, but everything else does seem unlucky...
