    Trim : cheap plastics

    Engine : metal

    Year : 1901

    Mileage : 999

    I just bought one that needs a replacement auto gearbox at 86k miles,inlet manifold,egr valve was seized,radiator fans still don't kick in and has a damp front passenger side floor well,
    But i love it still,it is such a nice car to drive and be in and even as it is i was getting 45 mpg on a run,on the way home from where i bought it,i still have a 2.2 sri dti vectra b estate to drive as well,but i have not been interested in driving it,since buying the vectra c cdti auto,i drove the b today to give it a run and couldn't wait to park it back up again,even with the minor faults on the cdti i just love driving it,every car gets problems,even the prestige brands,the difference is,the vauxhall bits are easier to obtain,if they go wrong.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default

    If buying from a VX dealer ask them to check what work has been done under warranty, especially EGR and DMF/clutch. Both are known and common problems which can tend to manifest themselves within 40,000 miles.
