    Default Towing with a vectra cdti 150

    Hi i was wondering what the Vectra was like at towing,i have not had the van on the back yet since i brought the car. Originall got the car as a stop gap before i got the 3.0 as my previous car blew the engine on the way on holiday. Problem is i like the Veccy so much i want to keep it providing it is ok at towing.

    Any one have any problems towing with one?

    thanks

    i should think the 150 cdti should be excellent towing my 2.0dti was spot on so more power and torque should be spot on

    Few reviews on there, albeit for caravans but the gist will be the same

    my 130 tdci ghia mondy was a great tow car so the veccy should be great but watch what weight van you get

    here you go lets you know if your car will pull it safely

    It does put an additional stress on the DMF but as long as you avoid abrupt harsh acceleration/deceleration cycles the car itself is very capable and has a massive wall of torque at the right place for towing.

    Reading the reviews it seems a nice piece of kit for towing,its been nearly ten years since i towed with a car as i have always had 4x4.
    My van is only 1298kg fully laden so should be no problem.
    My other car gave way going up birdlip in the cotswolds with the van on.

    My boxed 2.2 dti has 155 brake (280 lb ft torque) and pulls my 1250kg Swift Corniche with ease. You'll need to keep an eye on nose weight and the rear shocks will need to be in tip top condition to prevent grounding but apart from that it'll be fine

    As said, you will be fine. My first 150 was an 04 pre-facelift and was fine, the second was a facelift with an EDS re-map and towed all over France with it.

    My van has a max weight figure of 1455kg's and it was effortless. Both had the 19" Snowflake wheels as well.
