    confused advice on new vectra

    Already posted in the introduction section, thought I would put a quick post here!

    Looking at getting a Vectra C after years of owning a Mondeo.

    Swaying towards a diesel and have seen the following car for sale-

    Vauxhall Vectra 1.9 CDTi Exclusiv, 06 plate with 90k on the clock. Its the 150 version. Could get it for about 4k.

    Is it worth the money, and are there any things I should be looking out for?

    What is the Exclusiv model like, any advice or info much appreciated

    Steve

    Is there anything I should look out for on that particular engine. I have read some info that the 150 suffers more problems that the 120.

    I think these engines need a new cambelt/tensioner/water pump every 40,000 miles or 4 years. Better find out how much this would be first.

    The exclusive trim is quite basic. I've got a petrol exclusive and it's ok if you dont want toys to go wrong.

    Otherwise, have a quick search on here for DMF, Clutch and EGR probs and you will get an idea of what to expect.

    At 90k i'd be surprised if it's not had a DMF and clutch change, find out when it was done and check to see some paperwork. Some cars have had them done twice at this mileage
