    Default Thinking of changing my vectra

    Hi all

    I drive a 03 vectra 2litre dti, its got 107k miles on it but recently have had trouble with it and heard the injector pumps give some serious trouble on these..
    Anyway I would like a newer car and was thinking of upgrading to a vectra design cdti, great spec car, but
    Some people say they are a great car while others say I’m mad as they are crap and are
    Not near as reliable engine wise as the 2l dti..
    Seen a 07 design vectra 120bhp with 89k on it for 4700..
    Also the 120bhp are not as troublesome as the 150bhp –is that true?

    Any advice on this appreciated

    Thanks

    I had a '56 Design 1.9cdti 150, as you said a great spec car (mine was factor ordered with 18" wheels & VXR body kit too), the only problems I had were a EGR valve at 30k & a alternator at 60k, car was replaced at 85k so not sure of higher mileage issues

    The range sort of splits after the exclusive either going the sporty Sri/gsi/vxr route or the luxury Design/Elite way. The Sri has the looks/handling but the Design has the toys

    You would have to be popping the top cover off (no tools) and checking the swirl road is in place and secure, etc - Im very happy with my 1.9 150, its a great engine !!!

    I have to agree with that ^ had my 150 for a long time now, and no regrets at all. Fantastic motor.
    But - do your research and be very careful before buying. Then you'll have no problems.
    120 version doesn't have the swirl flaps to worry about, otherwise the same.

    Vehicle : Facelift Insignia/Corsa D

    Trim : LE/VXR

    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Year : 13/07

    Default

    Not being funny but as far as problems are concerned a 1.9 is more prone to problems than a DTi. Fuel pumps do not give serious issues on the dti and are less common than swirl flaps, dmfs, and egrs on the cdti
