    Default Vectra going.....

    Well, after 5 years and 47K miles of pretty trouble-free driving, the Vectra is moving on. To where, I don't yet know (waiting on Autotrader!). To what, I do know... a 56 reg Volvo V70 D5 auto. (Additional grandchildren forces sale!!)

    Interesting comparison between the V6 diesel and the 5 cyl Volvo diesel. The Vectra is definitely quieter and smoother particularly on starting, but the Volvo feel about the same in performance (185 bhp). Interestingly the Vectra is slightly heavier, and the Volvo also specifies 225/45/17 91W tyres, identical to mine except the V6 Vectra is best run with extra load 95W tyres.

    I'll keep membership of this site, which has been a great source of useful info. Hope the Volvo forum is half as good!

    Sold the Vectra yesterday. Have to say there didn't seem much interest out there, so took the hit on the the price - (4400 to 3600). At least I now have the cash towards the new wheels! The only guy that came out really liked it, though (apart from the price)
