    Default New Vectra SRI Owner

    Hey Guys,
    I've just bought my first Vectra (its a 2.2 Direct SRI 2004) and looks very nice but i have only had it for a month and i've had to take it back to the garage to be looked at. Seems when you put your foot down there is either a light with the spanner and on one occasion the other (emmisions i think) light comes on that looks like an engine light! After this the car loses all power till a restart.

    The garage owner has tested it and already replaced an "fuel pressure regulator" but at the moment its been sent to an auto electrical co. to be looked at and if that doesn't help he's sending it to Vauxhall!

    I really like the car, haven't had time to fall in love with it yet but i sold my Audi A3 1.8T (150BHP) to get it and i'm not sure now if that was a mistake, can someone give me some confidence, my brother has a Vectra C 2.2 DTI and his has problems with electrics etc too.

    Thanks dood, it is quite nice to look at wish it went well too. They had it at a garage and found one or two codes and didnt obviously fix the right part! I'm not sure why they are sending it there either, i was hoping they would send it straight to Vauxhall but i guess it will get there in the end :-)

    regarding the warranty - if the fault has been reported and was inherent at the time of purchase they should sort it EVEN if it goes out of warranty - otherwise they can have it back when it starts to cost you money
