    Vehicle : Vauxhall Insignia

    Trim : SRI NAV

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI 140

    Year : 2013

    Mileage : 20000

    Default

    I've had a 2005 pre-face, 1.9CDTI 150ps Signum for about 2 and half years, and its been great.

    It had done 26k when I bought it, and its now on 95k. During that time I've had rear springs, rear shocks, rear brake pads. The engine has gone into Limp Home twice, once today, but a restart and its fine agin for another 30k. It always seems to happen after a re-gen so I put it down to a big piece of soot going through the engine. I usually out some Wynns EGR3 through it every so often just to keep things clean.

    All I'd say is I do all motorway mileage, so everything is kept clean. If you do a lot of town driving then things maybe different, DMF, Clutch, EGR.

    Dont buy the 150, mine is a 08 150 cdti 57500 miles and is rubbish along with vauxhall.so far the flexipipe for the exhaust, flywheel, cruise control and altenator have gone, now the clutch is given trouble, windows rattle and noise from the back of the car when driving slow over rough ground.
    vx wont fix clutch or rattles.
    this is a joke and people who say this site is only for people with problems is rubbish.

    No mate, this site is also for people who like Vectras, like Signums even more ( ) and like to modify and improve them, and want to learn how to do repairs and maintenance themselves.

    Maybe you had a car that has been thrashed by the pervious owner or something,

    I've had two Vectra now and NEVER had any major problems like you have but then I don't thrash the hell out of it like I stole it,
