    Default Good Mileage As A Cab

    Hey again

    I'm pretty new on here still, but just wanted to mention my first Vectra.

    A Bamboo Green 1.8 petrol saloon on a 52 plate(yes i do like petrols). I operate my own cab co and bought this on 17k. 2 years later she had done 128k. Other than usual cambelt/brakes/servicing etc all that i did was an o/s/f wheel bearing!

    My (new) Vectra is a licenced cab so i'm hoping for the same standard.

    Just wanted to say well impressed that's why i have gone back to one

    Hiya mate, no not like your avatar pic. The Bamboo was a much lighter green.

    Cheers.

    It is a nice colour that. Dare i say it but my private car's colour is Chameleon, a 24v Probe It flips between purple/blue and grey.

    Can beat that mileage! 1992 Cavalier 1.8 LS ( petrol ) purchased in 1996 at 82k, to be used for private hire. Double manned for three years, and on the road virtually 24 hours a day.
    Sold in 1999 at 426k, tired but still going strong. Serviced every 6k. One clutch, 57 oil and filter changes, 19 spark plug changes etc that I did whilst I had it! No major part failures at all.
    Best car I've ever had.
