    Thumbs up Vectra C 2.2 DTI - what a great engine !!!

    My Vectra has just had it's oil and filter changed. It has 143000 miles on the clock and the guys at the garage could not believe how clean is the engine, and how it still performs. They checked the pressure on cylinders and found it to be like at a brand new engine.

    I had some hard time with my Vectra just over one year ago - when the turbo charger gave up. Just after that power steering rack has failed and I really thought this car is piece of rubbish.

    I was very impressed today and think that both major repairs I had to do were 100% worthy doing. The car performs excellent despite it's mileage/age.

    It is a very good car, and 2.2DTI is an excellent powerful and reliable engine!!!

    Vehicle : vectra-c

    Trim : sri

    Engine : cdti

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 98,000

    Default

    There are some people having issues with both 2.0 + 2.2 dti engines BUT i can also say that as an x owner of both a 2.0di + a 2.2dti they were both HIGH mileage when sold (around 120/130k) they were excellent! not 1 oil leak from both BONE DRY! FULL STOP, not even any oil'y sweating, they were still going like stink & still surprised many a fellow motorist, & both NEVER needed ANY oil between changes. the best two engines & cars ive ever owned! ultra reliable. 2.0di p,rg vec b, 2.2 dti s rg frontera.
