    Default oil sump information on new vectra c

    I have had a skids Octavia 58 plate which I am getting rid off as once in a while the sump plug bursts very easily over bad roads (alot of them down here especially when it rains can't see Jack)

    anyway one thing I've noticed is the Octavia sump by design is quite low so a little bit of bounce from the vehicle will easily allow the sump to scrape against the floor as has happened many times.

    was wondering if the Vectra c are different in that respect as my old b was solid and I went pretty much through anywhere with it. the Vectra is a much bigger car but Im looking for any info on this,
