    Default 2.2 Petrol Vectra

    What's the verdict on the car and what should I look out for?

    My 1.9 CDTI getting on and slowly dying and looking at a 56 plate one of these.

    Believe its the fuel pump is the biggest problem with these, correct me if I'm wrong. But the amout made compared to the amount that have gone wrong, I think there a fairly decent motor.

    Fuel pump and noisy timing chain only things to worry about on the 2.2 I think.

    The V6's are pretty solid along with 1.8's and 2.0T as well.
