    Default First Vectra

    Hi everybody, I have just got my first Vauxhall Vectra. It is a 1.9 Cdti 120 SRI in a very nice light blue. 55 plate with sat nav. It has replaced a 51 plate Mini Cooper.

    It has 100,000 miles on the clock with a full service history, and seems to be in very good condition. Drives well, no knocks or bumps. Clutch seems to work fine. Brakes and steering work as they should.

    Just a couple of questions guys:

    1. Anything i need to watch out for?

    2. The temp gauge only works "sometimes" and has never gone above 80. (I have ordered a new coolent temp sensor as a first guess) This a commen fault?

    3. Reading through the service history, at 80,000 it has the following ticked "Yes" in the book:
    Ribbed Belt
    Toothed belt and tensioning roller

    Does this mean the timing belt would have been changed??

    The last owner was a private owner, and before that it was Arnold Clarke in Manchester.


    The last service was only 5000 miles ago, so im thinking i should be ok for 10,000 miles at least. If anybody has any good recommended garages in the Stockport area it would be much appreciated.

    Many Thanks for anybody who gets back to me!!

    Mark
