    They all have problems. just do a search on cdti 150. The 150's do seem prone to a few niggley probs too. But most lads on here wouldn't change to owt else!!!

    I have the CDTi 150 in three cars - a 2004 pre-facelift Vectra SRi, a 2006 Astra Design estate and a 2008 Vectra Elite, all of which I have had from new.

    I have had most of the problems associated with this engine, most of which has been covered by waranty. This can be a very good engine but (in my opinion) is not suited to short distance cold running journey's such as city driving. I still have the Astra which has now done 85000 smokey miles due to its town use and will be replaced by a more suitable petrol engined car. My Vectra Elite has done almost 40000 miles and still feels healthy due to regular 250 mile motorway commutes.

    Welcome m8, go for the 120 not as many of the problems as the 150..........then stick a tuning box, k&n filter and a twin exhaust on it and it will be just a quick if not quicker than a 150.........thats what i did..........
