    Vehicle : Vectra Hatchback

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 2.2 DTi

    Year : 2003

    Default Opinions Please....

    Ok, as many of you know I currently have a 1.8 Petrol SRi Vectra on a 52 Plate. However Im having yet more problems, and I have just about made up my mind on chopping it in for a newer/more economical model.

    I want at least an SRi Spec, and I have found a 2.2 DTi on an 03 Plate I like, Are these engines any good?

    Any specs on them like MPG etc? Would like to change asap to be honest.

    All opinions welcome, Regards

    Chris

    Have a look HERE for specs
    There are a few 2.2 DTi owners on the forum so they should give you a better idea of the performance, MPG, problems etc

    I have a 2.0 SXI DTI and thats fine for me,ok its not the fastest vec on the road but where it makes up is on the mpg!! my previous car was a mondeo st200 and the down grade in performance hasnt been to bad
    but if your after a 2.2 sri i think you will have the best of both worlds- good mpg/performance.

    I have an Elegance 2.2 DTi 52 plate '03 model. Spec on this one is very good. Velour seats, indirect night lighting, puddle lights on all 4 doors, front and rear interior lights with reading lamps, front fogs, front/rear elec windows, integrated smartnav and nonkia hands free, rain sensor wipers, fold flat passenger seat, rear cupholders, 4xCD changer and 9 speakers, multifunction display with check control and trip computer, cruise control, sunglasses holder, leather sterring wheel and gearstick gaiter, 16 inch alloys.

    Elegance and Elite are higher specced than most of the SRi's mate and are worth hunting down if you're not bothered about the sports suspension. I've de-restricted the airbox which made a fair bit of difference. The car is fairly swift, much better than the two 1.8s I had, a lot more flexible and responsive in-gear acceleration.

    Now for the best bit. Its averaged 46 mpg over the last 1600 miles and will easily see 55-60mpg on a long run. I've had no problems (touch wood) since I've owned it and as I have a full and comprehensive history for the car, I can confidently say its one previous owner had no major problems either. I feel this is probably down to oil and filter changes every 10k from new.

    Couldnt fault mine at all, excellent on fuel, and as most have said above, full of extras, but thats because its an Elite. You can get the 2.2DTi engine on the SRi spec.

    I owned a 2.2DTI Elite for about 2 1/2 years and 51,000 miles and I loved it, the engine IMO was superb and very responsive ... just like driving a petrol but with bags of torque. I also averaged between 40 and 50 mpg in the main and saw around 63mpg on some long clear motorway runs ... and that's from a driver who now gets 31mpg from his V6 diesel so not like I drove it like a granny.
