    Default Signum advice....

    Right then I've been given the task of sorting out a new car for my dad.

    Basically he wants a top spec Signum diesel auto.

    Now he is getting on a bit age wise lol from reading the various threads about engine problems etc and the usual issues is the 3.0 V6 diesel the one to go for instead of the 1.9? its looking as though it will be a pre-facelift model that we will be going for though budget wise.

    Anymore advice etc?

    1.9 will probably give him more troubles than the 3.0 V6. Does he do enough miles to warrant a diesel?

    An old 3.2 V6 Elite auto would be a good bet, and I reckon he'd save a lot of cash over a diesel V6. The earliest Eilte's are much better spec'd too - ask Duncan...

    My pre face Elite has all the toys, electic adjust seats, mirrors etc. Many of these did not make it into the Facelift version.

    My 3.0 V6 Diesel works a treat and burbles around town very nicely. When you give it some grief it leaves most things behind. Highly recommend it.

    I'd say he does as his C1 he bought new on a 56 plate and thats upto 60k now.

    Its all about the MPG with him I did say about the 3.2 V6 but he said he wants a diesel model, he just wants to get the best he can get, although I'm still not sure what the budget is yet.

    All i would say is early Signums and auto boxes can be a chuffing nightmare and a £2500 bill if you get a moody one!!!
