    Default Hello All

    Hi All,

    Just joined the Vectra C site as Iím looking at buying one, I have a Vectra B 2ltr sri at the moment and been a member on VVOC for about 7 years now (Finny on there)

    Had been thinking about a Diesel 150 or 120cdti, but having second thoughts, think I read to many of the posts about the issues they seem to be having, I know all cars have their issues, anyway probably going to go for the petrol 2.2sri or 2.0T.

    Any thoughts/advice on which is the best one to go for, (I tow a caravan as well) do the 2.2 direct engines have the cam chain issues?

    Thanks

    Some do, the early ones still had the old engine from the "B" although that was never supposed to be. The later direct engines have pump problems. Out of the two I would go for the 2.0t everytime.

    Short but sweet
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Dont overlook the 1.9 150. Fantastic engine, dont forget forums, as im sure you aware (vvoc) is a place people complain and ask for help. There are plenty others out there, not in trouble and with no need for fixing advice lol
