    Default Hello from cumbria.

    hi guys,i just traded in my 5 series bmw for an 07 plate vectra life cdti 120 and so far i am very pleased,the build quality feels much better than my old vectra b i had years ago and the fuel economy is really pleasing however the radio is a bit of a let down (cd30) as is the lack of mpg/range etc on the info screen but i am sure i will learn to live with it.
    hopefully i wont be asking many questions regarding problems but you never know .
    all the best,
    paul.

    welcome mate, dont take a lot of notice of the info on the screen, it could be correct of course but a mates is miles off regarding mpg, test by filling tank right up, set trip to 0000, do 300 miles ish, then refill, the check miles ltrs used ect, a mates showed he was getting 38 mpg but was realy getting 46mpg.
