    Default Buying Advice

    About to change my car, within the next few weeks, and having looked at my options the Vectra C Estate with the CDTi lump seems the wise choice. Also having had one as a company car a couple of years ago has further made my mind up as I loved it. Passats hold the money too well, Mondeo derv lumps are just unreliable, Bm's/Merc's again hold the money to well and pricey when they go wrong.

    I'm looking to spend about £4k which from what I've seen for sale would just about get me a face lift Exclusiv spec with reasonable mileage of about 80k, is there anything to look out for at this mileage, only thing I remember being an issue on my company car was the DMF, and EGR valve, other than that it was perfect. Is there anything else to keep an eye out for, anything else common to go on these? Are these chain driven or cambelted, if so when should they be changed?

    Many thanks Peeps
