    The usual Vectra C issues
    Suspension, electrics, air con, clutch / DMF, etc

    For the engine services should be every 20K miles / 1 year
    Cambelt is 100K miles

    Take a good look at all the tyres, checking for shoulder wear
    Take a good look at the brake pads, they don't last long!

    Probably hasn't seen many of them then...
    There is more to go wrong on them than just the fuel pump!

    I'd be looking forward, rather than in the mirror!

    A late 2005 with last service at 65K miles
    Sounds like it has been "over serviced", as they are 20K miles / 1 year
    So I assume it had one service every 12 months

    Looks like another owner hit by the DMF and clutch
    They only seem to last about 4 years (irrespective of mileage)
