    Default How to learn to appreciate your SRi

    Yesterday evening I had to head back to my office in the evening. The baby seat was in the Vectra and the wife was heading out with the baby. I hate fitting the seat so we swapped cars, meaning I had to drive in and out of Belfast in her Hyundai Getz. My god but it is slow............ It has the 1.4 petrol and is I think 90bhp which should be ok in a car as small, but god was it frustrating after driving the SRi CDTi for a month. Also having just about got used to the Vectra's horrible indicator stalk, I was failing to indicate properly in the Getz, as I have got into the way of barely touching the stalk when I want the 3 flashes.

    lol.. Do you know what, Im thinking of buying such a little car, think it will be a laugh to go out in it now and again.. Ive been eyeing up a cheap Daewoo Matiz.. 800cc power.. But really it will be for my wife to learn to drive in (my vecs too big really and automatic) but hell, Im looking forward to nipping about in it on my own sometimes, should be a laugh for just nipping to local shops..

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    I used to swap regularly between my old 2.0T and an Astra 1.7DTI, and my God it was so unresponsive, had to brake harder, accelerate harder and rev the engine more......and then take it easy when I got back in my car.

    @nibblitz - while you'll be borrowing the Daewoo now, she'll soon be nicking your Vectra when she passes her test!
