    Default Vehicle check

    Hi,
    I have just bought a V6 diesel and have now come across the strangest thing.
    Different websites sites list it differently!!!!
    My car check : vectra design 150, 3.0 litre V6
    Dvla : vectra 3.0 Diesel
    Autotrader: vectra 3.0 Sri diesel
    Log book: vectra 3.0 Sri diesel
    Euro car parts: 3.0 Sri diesel
    Finance company check: vectra design 150 3.0 diesel

    Why does the design keep cropping up but only on certain websites!!!!!

    I'd be more concerned about where the 150 comes from as if it's a 3.0 it's not a 150, but it could be a design. Is it a design or an Sri etc?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Def an Sri and def a V6, one site even says design 150 engine size 2959 cc
    Which is a complete contradiction of all info

    The DVLA do get it wrong all the time, I bought a 2.2 direct vectra about a year ago, I noticed when I got home it said diesel on the log book, turned out it had been registered wrong from new.They also wont change the details without a letter from vauxhall.

    For the purpose of insurance claims later ...

    crossed fingers , hopefully not ...

    i would find out the correct model / size / bhp of car ..

    infact the correct details of EVERYTHING .

    because you know them tight insurance companies will pick the smallest detail ........ for them NOT to pay out in the event of a claim ...

    and if YOU have accepted the wrong details on your insurance certificate , they will blame you for not verifying your car correctly and refuse to pay out and tell you where to go ...

    seems a shame to lose a car you love over some small details .

    I hope you get it all sorted ......... Best wishes

    Vehicle : Signum 2.0 DTi

    Trim : Elegance/Elite

    Engine : 2.0DTi

    Year : 2003

    Mileage : 73350

    Default

    Had this on my 2.0 DTi When i went to pick it up looked at the registration docs and they said car was a 2.2 as did all the garages documentation .
    Turned out the garage had made the error when they first registered it So all the time they owned it 2 1/2 years then next owner never realised it was wrongly registered .
    Driving vauxhall,s for 30 + years
    and still loving it
