    Default 1.8vvt average mileage

    Hi,

    My Vectra 1.8vvt is an 08 plate and is currently on 41500 miles. Is this average mileage for a 3 year old car? I do approx between 13-14k miles a year. It was a company car prior to me buying it a year ago.

    Vehicle : Focus

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 1.6 TDCI

    Year : 62

    Mileage : 9K

    Default

    Average mileage in normally between 10-12k a year. As yours is an 08 plate making it 3 yrs old, i would say its about 11k over.

    I wouldnt worry about that small difference, but it should have reflected in the purchase price.

    Thanks Graham, yeah when I bought the car a year ago I did get a good deal on it right enough and it had been reduced in price at the dealer. As you said the mileage on the car at 2 years old probably reflected the price.

    Thanks for the replies. I always ensure that things such as filters, plugs etc get changed at the correct service interval. Even though it has slightly more miles on it for its year you don't think this should be anything to worry about - apart from resell value of course, as the Vectra's can go through the miles with ease.

    Hi

    Bought my VVT SRI last July from main dealer - it was 18 months old and had only done just under 3000 miles.

    A bit of investigation showed it had been within the dealer network for about 6 months and previously registered to a leasing company. Found that they were in administration so suspect their stock had been sold off by liquidators.

    Anyhow, had 18 months left of VX warranty and so far, had a new power steering unit (pump?) and aircon condensor, all under warranty.

    Mileage now at 6200 - I am now retired so I really must get out more.
