    Default Vectra C buying guide.

    I am on the verge of buying a 2003 2.2 Vectra SRI petrol and would like to view the buyers guide but it is in the full member section which is locked.
    This seems a little crazy as im sure most of the paid full members have already bought there Vectras.
    Would this not be more usefull in another section so that potential buyers can see this information.?
    As you can see i am trying to gather as much info as possible so that i dont make any expensive mistakes.
    Can someone give me any info on what to look out for, Are there any common problems with this engine or the car for that matter.
    I so want this car to be right as it ticks all the boxes for me.
    Big boot for my sons pram and the other halfs shopping and looks lovely with the SRI trim so i can still think im 18.

    The car im looking at has done 73k and is the 2.2 non direct petrol.
    Also does this car have rain sensing wipers as i have heard it does and doesn,t.
    Any help would be gratefully recieved.
    Thank you

    Sorry for all the questions and hello all.
    Hopefully this car is as good as i think it is and i will be here for some time.

    VX recommend the chain being changed at 100k but you really want to get it done before that, say 60k. Start it up cold and make sure there isn't a diesel or chain noise that then goes after a few seconds, if so then the tensioner is going/gone.

    The rain sensitive wipers are part of the Sight and light pack and on an 03 SRi I believe it should be fitted. To know for sure have a look at the rear view mirror, there should be a little light on the bottom of it that shines on the gear stick when it night time, also you can see the sensor in the windscreen behind the mirror. HTH.

    Its called indirect night lighting, its supposed to stop the dash looking like its floating at night. It also means you have Auto dip mirror.
