    Default Vectra's Going

    Well after 4months of ownership it's going,love the car but one thing after anothers starting to go wrong,

    ALTERNATOR FAILED
    BATTERY THEN WENT
    AIRCON WENT-CONDENSOR
    Tappy top end
    NOW REV COUNTERS NOT FREELY MOVING,when you rev it from cold in a morning it like jumps down in stages,you drive it and it then goes back to normal,
    God knows what that is or whats on the way but sod that had enough,
    And its only done 34,000,genuine checked on the ecu and converted from KM to Miles and it works out correct,

    Will still be staying in the vauxhall fold...getting the in laws 10-plate zafira desing,cdti 150...only done 10,000 miles from new and drives very good,
    There going to trade mine in and buy a new astra excite 1.7cdti,

    0% apr,loyalty bonus from vauxhall works out cheaper to buy new instead of used,no early settlement penalty so both gain,

    Sad to see her go but i can feel a moneypit opening up...wonder if the dealer will sell it or or put it into auction.

    Nice to see someone else has noticed it is sometimes cheaper to buy new than a used model. My Octavia Vrs was the same, brand new with Skoda 20% discount plus dealer discount was cheaper than the 'approved used' on the forecourt !
