    Default How long?

    Just curious as I was reading around about how the 1.9 [150] is prone to having DMF Clutch kit Inlet Manifold and EGR valve replaced. How long do they last. Also is it worth getting a vectra with high mileage? around 120-130k?

    mine is at 120k now. the original clutch lastest 60k then i bought it and i've done another 60k with no clutch issues - so far lol! i think it's about how you drive it and how much abuse you give the clutch. riding it etc will not help! i drive my car hard but don't abuse the clutch.

    my manifold was technically ******ed at around 70k, but it was still driveable and only threw up spanner light once or twice a year. finally replaced it last year at about 110k

    EGR just keep clean yourself and it'll last - mine is original and 'serviced' about once a year now by me.

    120-130k isn't really high mileage as there are some around with 200k+ I guess it all depends on the price.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Thank you all. You've given me a better understanding on this "common" issues. They arise but have long lasting effect. I would only be doing like 6k a year anyways so its all good.
