    Vehicle : Vectra SRi

    Trim : XP1

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 66000

    Default 1.8VVT Advice...

    I am going to look at a few SRi's with the 1.8VVT engine next week with a mate, does anyone have any pointers as what to look for specifically with this engine?

    He was looking at diesels, but only does about 6-8K a year, and as you can pick this up for around £4K with low mileage, seemed a no brainer.

    Any advice you can give would be appreciated

    Nothing really of note on vvt,s, robust engine if serviced but they do like to be revved hard and fuel consumption average, saying that mine has 117k on it and still goes like new.

    if spending £4000,,, service history, try and get one that has had a cam belt change, some change their belts early, test drive and make sure the temp guage goes up to 85/90, make sure every thing works ok, pull the back wheels, catch hold of the wheel at 12o'clock and pull towards you, there should be no movment, lots of the 1.8 vvt about,, should get a 50,/60,000 miler if you shop about.
