    Default Potential New Veccy Owner

    Hi all, I am in the process of buying a 57 plated 1.9 150bhp SRI Estate I just wanted to check if the 57 plated version has the manifold fix implemented and most of the bugs sorted out?

    Thanks in advance

    I only bought it on Saturday, it's a 55 reg and I bought it knowing the manifold needed replacing, I had a 54 reg a couple of years ago with exactly the same engine and I loved it, once the common problems are sorted I think it will be fine, iv had a lot of cars and I change then quite regularly but I wish I'd kept my old vec so I won't be selling this one to soon, iv had 330 BMW msports, imprezas, and my last car was an st220 but for what me and the mrs need its the best car for the job, plus being 24 the insurance is a bit better lol

    Ditto!


    As for reliable? I got mine at 8 months and it went back to the dealer numerous times in the first 12 months of my ownership for numerous problems - but these were sorted under warranty. It has been reliable from then until about a month or so ago and it seems to have developed a whole raft of issues in this time - the manifold problem being the most expensive!

    Yes the manifold issues do seem a bit worrying, have managed to secure a 2 year network q warranty on mine. Hearing some of the horror stories on here didnt want to go unprotected. I have been reading some of the how 2's and the egr cleaning doesn't seem to bad however I think the manifold would be a bit beyond my skill set lol. Next job is too find somebody on here in Bham so I can get tech support

    Hi mate there is a garage in Birmingham who were going to replace my manifold, I spoke to him on the phone and he knew what he was talking about, he has his own garage, he has a listing on eBay to replace manifolds, if you search vectra manifold replacement you will find it, if you can't I'll get the item listing no
