    Vehicle : Vectra c SRI Facelift

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2006

    Default Help finding a Vectra plzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Hey guys,
    Im currently on the lookout for a 2004-2005 Vectra C 1.9 cdti Sri or something along that line of spec.Mileage wise i dont really want anything above 110,000 without a FSH or at least some sort of history for the last 2-3 years just so i know its been looked after and still has a good few years left in it.

    My budget is £3,000 max and i think that for that budget i should be able to get the car i want.....please let me know if im asking too much

    Here is where my problems start,I dont currently own a car but do have access to a family members car but very limited access.I have been searching daily on Autorader and Ebay for possable cars but i cant find anything i would be happy buying within a resonable distance of where i live.All the cars ive seen are between 80-90 miles away and due to my limited transport its not possable for me just to go and have a look.If i was to travel all that way it would have to be to hand over the money and buy it.Now this is something i would not be happy doing at all but its getting to the stage where im going to start eating into my budget as i have my own family and we need transport and the cost of taxi's and giving friends and family petrol money is getting expensive.

    My second problem is people selling their cars at cambelt due time(90-100k) now before anybody says anithing i know(thanks to this forum) that Vauxhall actually lowered the cambelt change intervals due to water pumps failing so infact 80k is cambelt change time.

    Last week i sent 9 emails and made 7 phone calls to sellers who's cars i was interested in.None of them stated in their descriptions if the cambelt had been changed so i had to find out by contacting them.All but 1 seller had no idea about the change in cambelt intervals and 4 of them basicly said i was telling lies and that should look elsewhere if i wanst happy....They were all traders by the way! Not 1 of the sellers would drop the price to help out towards the cost of the cambelt change even though technicly the cars were on average 15k overdue.

    Another thing ive come accross while on the search for a Vectra and that is a few of them(which included 2 that i had my heart set on) had very bad wear in the drivers footwell to the extent of having little or no carpet left at all.I know this could just be down to the prevour owner(s) not have floor mats and wet shoes but i had a simalar probelm on my last car and it was due to leaking door seals..is this a common/know probel on the vectra C's?....there is currently a couple of Autotrader with sorry looking drivers footwells at the moment

    Can anybody reccommend somewhere that i may get the car of my dreams without being stitched up or taken advantage

    Cheers

    I just bought a 1.9 cdti sxi 120bhp 119k for £2200 part service history so your price should be ok since buying I have had to change lambda sensor needed a new intercooler, dealer I bought car from offered to help with £100 on intercooler. Look on pistonheads you should find a nice version of what your looking for on their about your price range

    To be honest with the price range you are looking there are always chances of being ripped off it helps if you know what ya looking at (unlike me who has found out about common faults After purchase)

    yeah ive been ripped off before on more than 1 occasion and thats why ive really looked into the Vectra's before i buy 1.

    A mate of mine got the same car im after for £2,700 with a FSH and its a propper minter but it did take him 4 months to find the right one and he must of test drove about 20 before he got his.He did say that some of the ones he drove were absolute bags of ****e but were being sold for top money and if he didnt already know att he time what it should drive like he would of been done up like a kipper

    I hate buying cars,i really hate it! lol

    same herebought my vecy then found out i had various common faults. I was lucky though & got most of it done on the warranty.
    check for signs of dual mass flywheel failure & inlet manifold swirl bar is still attached and working correctly. they are the most expensive common faults.
