    Default Bon Voyage... The Vectra has gone

    Hi folks, just wanted to say thanks for giving me advice on problems with my Vectra Elite (58)

    Unfortunately I couldnt live with all the niggles that plagued my car, and the indignity of a holed AC condenser on a 16 month old car...so yesterday a nice dealer crossed my palm with a cheque and I waved goodbye to the Vectra.

    Its a shame really as its probably the most economical big car Ive owned, returning an average of 53.8 MPG over the last 17,000 miles.

    I have also always struggled with the bizarre handling on the Elite (nothing like the SRi im told) which confounded me and caused the wife to be travel sick...the front and rear suspension seemed to be at odds with eachother, with a firm front end but a ludicrously loose and bouncy rear end...it actually felt like someone bouncing up and down in the boot constantly whilst driving along, this meant fast cornering was a heart stopping experience requiring constant corrections/input at the wheel, brakes and gears.... and motorway driving was tediously bouncy...maybe I should have gone for a model with firmer suspension.

    I had thought about going for a new insignia, but have now heard of quality issues such as water ingress into the electrics, headlamps and electrical ghosts just like my Vectra.

    Anyways...time to move on. good luck with you cars...and the excelent support here in the owners forum.

    Thanks again. Jamie
