    Default Beware this Vectra

    Well I handed back my clocked Vectra in late Sept 2010 with 23,400 on the odomemter but 55,000 on the ECU (88,430Km that is)

    And looky here folks see who's back for sale,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Different garage as the car was returned to BCA but another garage has it up with the clocked miles.

    What should I do? if anything,,,,

    phone the garage and advise them that the mileage is incorrect and give them a chance to change the advert ..... failure to change it and then contact trading standards as false advertising

    It's probably been through the auction, so should have been mentioned on their sales information
    If not, then the current sales agent won't know or be aware

    All they will do is look at the available information, and for such a young car they won't take the time to do this; switch car on, look at odometer and see 24782, and compare service book and current MoT

    However, if you submitted the mileage on the V5, then this should be enough to advise the current sales agent

    Personally, contact Trading Standards
    Again, the sales agent can simply advise they were unaware and them place a disclaimer on the instrument display "unconfirmed mileage"
