    Default Should I avoid 2.2 DTI?

    I have been looking at buying a Vectar TDCI however a local garage has a Vectra 2.2DCI diesel for sale for £4000. It has 60k on the clock and it is offered with a 2 year warranty. It is late 2003. I wasn't going to consider this car but a 2 year warranty and the fact that the dealer is within 10 minutes drive has made me think. Is it worth getting or will it end up costing more?

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 150

    Year : 05

    Mileage : 74000

    Default

    should be about £3200 or such for a 2003 model from a dealer? 2.2dti is a solid engine other than the crankshaft pulley which can delaminate

    I have looked on auto trader and can't seem to find anything around £4000 without a really high mileage. I thought the 2 years warranty made it good value. Where is the best place to look to find cheaper?

    Thanks, that seems like a great deal. Do they often come up at that price?
