    Default Thinking of selling the Insignia?

    Well after all the problems i have had with the latest particulate filter issue on my 09 Insignia and not feeling very confident with the dealer.

    I'm thinking of selling the car, it may be a big mistake but i'm not sure if i have got a load of problems coming my way soon and it will prob be the day after the warranty expires.

    Was thinking of getting Mazda 6 2.0 petrol TS2? But that is not a definate purchase, i do like the shape and size of the insignia so could even venture in to another one but petrol this time.

    Any ideas?

    Oh
    so you have a diesel

    DO NOT get a petrol Insignia unless its the VXR
    I had a 1.8 Elite and got roughly 26mph and that was driving "gay"
    they really are terrible on petrol dear

    Why not get a nice diesel Vectra and enjoy the spare cash?

    I'm having DPF issues again after a year of no problems - vectra estate, 1.9(150) 120K. Was thinking of going to Insignia Est when get to 150K, but looks like VX are not learning and insigina has same inherited DPF issues! I am thinking of returning to petrol too - again Mazda 6 est , though last made Vectra C Est may be a good opt too. Insane, you can't trust a diesel due to ill thought out DPF sys. Note other manufacurters have problems too, so if I was to stay diesel would stick with Vx - rather the one you know that the one you don't.
