    Smile good car bad car?

    Hi all, new to site but im guessing things may be a bit more regular by reading some posts and living with the car for around 8 weeks now.

    Got the 2.2 vectra 2004 model, are these any good with bit niggles or should i trade.

    Had high pressure fuel pump go which has been stripped and repaired, also have a slight faint rattle and have been made aware of timing chain/tensioner,

    if these 2 problems were sorted am i looking at a canny car or should i keep a plastic card availble for covering repairs.?

    Love the car to drive but could really do without a money pit,

    Whats your opinions? Appreciate any pointers

    2.2i direct fuel pumps are a design fault and you need to ensure this has been fitted with the re-designed one. (check out the BBC Watchdog site) - VERY expensive if not covered

    Yeah appreciate that, seen the watchdog report about 2 weeks after i bought it dunno how i couldnt find it before hand like blinkered perhaps...

    What are the common faults i suppose im asking based on mileage etc (car is 54k according to dash) and are the 2 problems weve mentioned the main 2 or are there more waiting to relieve me of my hard earned pennies?

    A bit scared of the coming responses cheers
