    Default new sri 2.0t owner

    Hi just a quick hello from a first time vauxhall owner. Bought a 2004 vectra 2.0t 100 edition today from private seller. I'm totally delighted with it. I'm shocked how wrong the impression I got from the motoring press was. They generally slagged the vectra when it came out but I can't see why! An equivalent (and apparantly superior) mondeo would be more expensive, have a much much poorer engine, less equipment and it would be falling to bits.

    Also, of all the specialist car forums I've been a member of this is genuinely the most comprehensive and best natured I have encountered. No doubt I'll be on here at some point moaning about a trivial problem somewhere down the line so I look forward to communicating with a few like minded people.

    Cheers

    Welcome mate, any questions just ask as there is plenty of people with experience in Vectra's including the 2.0T

    I had an Edition100 for four and a half years. It's a stonking car with a gem of an engine. The Vectra 2.0T received favourable reviews from the motoring press as it was regarded as a true 'driver's car', and all the reviews from Edition100 owners I have read have been very favourable.

    You will enjoy it. Best 4-cylinder engine in the range IMO

    Thanks everyone. Found it's first little niggle today but it's just a knocking exhaust at the right rear, an easy fix. Had it's first little spank today too, it really is a stonking engine and drivetrain. Extremely refined, flexible and suprisingly economical when driven carefully. It even sounds great. I think I'm smitten.
