    Generally these are solid motors mate, Just check clutch and DMF and check for excessive smoke on start up and when driving, Leakoff pipes are a problem along with leaking injector seals but this is only a problem if cars been parked facing up a hill and car will be a pain to start.
    All so the fuel pump on these are weak and can lead to bad starting and non starting but these pumps have been known to out last the car lol

    Then its just normal vectra stuff to check like rear arms,Drop links,Brake disks,Electrics all working,No EML ligh on or Airbag,Passenger footwell for water.

    All so if you can i would check car starting from cold and make sure GP light comes on and then take it for a good run (Not just up the street and back, Make sure car gets upto temp) then if possible ask to leave car and come back an hour or so later to check starting from warm there's loads of threads including mine regarding warm starting this can be anything from leaky injectors,crank shaft sensor,GP relay,Battery,Starter motor lol

    I suppose its like any car mate as long as its serviced and loved it should see you right

    cheers for that, the mileage is 115k but looks very clean exceptbit of laquer peel on front bumper , rest of car is pretty much mint, The last C i had was the Gsi and i know this is gonna be no where near what that was but i do like the C
    its only the Ls (Low Spec) version but looks not bad tbh
    its in like moonland grey of the vec B

    My old vectra was at 175k lol and it was an LS check my garage 115k is high mileage and don't expect it to be fast because it isn't But at that mileage you shouldnt really be expecting a new car so there will be items that have maybe seen there best days and i would set some money back to replace items like springs and exhaust.

    What service history has it got ? do you know when last service was and when clutch & DMF was changed ?
    These are timing chain driven so listen for any rattles too

    il find all that stuff out when i see it, as far as im aware there are no running issues ,no eml or warning lights lit n the only reason he selling is cos he wants something a bit quicker he said lol
    so im not expecting an F1 car lol
    are the chains on the Dtis the same as on the 2.2 petrol and suffer from failures like they did on the vec B 2.2 petrol engines ??

    I haven't heard of any failures on Dti engines just check that there's no rattles on startup and afaik the chain should last the life of the engine
