    Default Used Car Roadshow

    I was watching the said TV program last night, where they are given a spec for a used car and off they go to find three examples that fit the bill. They guy had 8k to spend and wanted a large hatch that was economic, not french, japanese or italian.

    the presenters found a
    Vectra LS 1.9 CDTi 120 04 reg
    Mondeo Ghia 2.0TDi 04reg
    Saab 95 on a Wreg.

    They test drove both cars, and Mr Clarkson take note, the Vectra did very well. The lady presenter commented on the build quality, superior handling to the other two, good equipment levels and good controls. The bad bits were the seats were too hard and a little bland inside.

    The guy went for the mondeo, but he did own a focus b4, which are good cars, so he was probably a ford man anyways.

    It was really good to see a genuine unbiased review of the Vectra.

    Yep saw it. Would have been interesting if they'd found a veccy for the extra five hundred quid the mondeo was - as that might have got him and sxi or maybe an sri, which might have tipped the scales.
