    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    Default

    tbh it doesn't surprise me at all... I bought my car in a ****e state.. fault/errors all over the dash.. sensor faults, failed parking pilot, failed heater natrix, crappy suspension, screaming multi V belt, knackered DMF... However i paid peanuts and knew what i was getting, I like to work on my cars and when i fix/replace something i always go for an upgraded part if availabale and will shop around for the best deal. I conclusion, i knew what i was letting myself in for (had a veccy B that was a right goose and now runs sweet as a nut and better than when it left the factory i should think). I have slowly but surely fixed and replaced the parts and not spent a fortune either.. I do the work myself (not the DMF) and will end up with a great car still worth more than i paid for it.. I was under no illusions that vx can fit some crap on their cars in factory and that they fail.. But its with forums like this that joe public can overcome such worries and get their motors fixed without breaking the bank..

    My signum's already done the equivalent mileage of a 4 year old car and is just out of warranty and nothing (touch wood) has gone yet, and with the 2.0T it only seems like the multi-v and dmf that are real problems. so fingers crossed I should be alright.

    £3k is the cost of an auto gearbox from Vxl (£2500ish incl VAT from an independant gearbox specialist)- this i believe is the most common 'fault' due to leaking coolers etc in the early Signums
