    Default is 100k alot of miles for the 1.9 cdti 150??

    been looking at the 1.9 cdti 150 around the facelift model and most of them seem to have around/over 100k miles.

    i know its not alot for a diesel engine but these vx units seem abit troublesum.

    so is it ok for them to have nearly 2x/3x the average miles, just really been put of them as of late, and cant really find one with around average miles...

    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : CDTI 150 (Z19 DTH)

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 100k

    Make sure it has good history and you should be absolutly fine.

    they are a gem of a engine- and at that millage - hopefully all the known faults will have been fixed.

    Happy to specify in more detail specifics to look for

    I have been browsing the market recently and to be honest there are very few low milers, majority of them have around the 80kish.

    The Vectra is pretty much a fleet car, so your looking at average miles of anything between 15k to 20k per annum.

    If the car is 55 (entry reg of the facelift) then 100k in about 5 years is probably about right, if not slightly over. But as said, ensure service history is present the usual culprits are not playing up.

    I hope its priced well for you?

    We had one at work until last year, it was an 06 CDTI 150 SRI, and in 3 years it was in the company it did 115k and was still as strong (if not better) than my dads (at that time it was playing up) which at the time was on 30k (on a 55).

    Have a good nose around it, check all docs, etc.

    On the flip side, until 2 years ago I had a 54-pre face CDTI 120 which had 90k in 4 years and was no end of trouble.....

    Best of luck.


    Bye bye Vec B

    good post on here somehwere about a 1.9 cdti that has 222k on her, ok its a cab, but still going strong. I have a 55plate 120 cdti, 106k, facelift and touchwood has proven reliable. Ex rep cars are a good buy, as they do mostly motorway and tend to be serviced at correct intervals. Check the history and that the cambelt has been changed.

    I was going to quote that one too, the engine itself has some inherent issues to do with emissions, once those are, err,,, modified (EGR, Crankcase ventilation, DMF, Inlet manifold )then there is nothing that a really good maintenance regime would not overcome and 200K will be easily achieveable

    I would agree, if it works out as between 20K and 25K miles per annum, with services at either annual or the appropriate mileage, then it would be accetable

    However, if it is 100K miles in less than 3 years I would avoid no matter what

    Equally, you will struggle to get any kind of warranty once a car exceeds 100K miles

    I have never had a motor with warrenty tbh...

    My past 3 motors have been high milers especially after i have finished with them & had less probs than my low miler Zaffy.
    Vec B - 2.2dti sri - bought @ 80k Ran it for 50k - no issues
    Vec C - 2.0dti elite bought it @ 75k ran it for 60k - CV joint & springs replaced in the time i had it.
    Current Vec C 1.9cdti elite bought @ 85k - currently aproaching 120k - the dmf has just had it's first minor rattle... will replace when it needs it

    I think you are better off with a high milleage one- all the common faults will have been done egr dual mass flywheel. Mine is on 126k and i bought it atg 104k and i love it
