    Default Bought A Differant Vectra

    Well today i traded my vvt petrol vectra in,for a 150 cdti vectra,allthough its on an 07 plate hopefully it'll be ok,

    Going to extend the network q i think so should be ok for another year.

    Overall there pritty reliable from what i can see,few common issues but then every car has.

    So hopefully its got the get up and go over the vvt and fuel economy?

    Any pointers on the cdti or look out for when i collect it?

    As you've already bought it, its probably best not to mention:

    • Inlet Manifold / Swirl Flap problems
    • EGR Issues
    • DMF Problems


    Just make sure you warranty covers these items (EGR aside).

    Should do m8,the network q as far as i know should but i also have the aa breakdown and in it the mechanical cover upto £500 for a maximum of 5 claims per year so between the 2 i should be ok...fingers crossed

    Havent seen the car apart from a few pics due to it having to come from another dealer so allways weary but from a main dealer so should be ok.....i hope

    Check the state of the inlet manifold and whether or not the swirl bar is attached or not.
