    Vehicle : Vectra c SRI Facelift

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2006

    Default Just got back from 1st test drive

    Just got back from test driving a Vectra

    well the car drove very well,very quick and responsive and no strange noises.I couldnt give it a propper thrashing as it was in the new forrest and there were animals in the roads lol.

    BUT

    The front and rear bumpers were both coverd in scratches and stone chips,there was a nasty scrape on the drivers door and a small dent on the rear wing.The interior was ok,a bit grubby and needed a good clean

    The asking price is £3495 and after a long chat he agreed to either do the cambelt or sort out the body work.he showed me al the history which came with the car and it used to be a fleet car so all the work that had to be done has been done

    IM not 100% sure on the car so am going to walk away.

    Back to searching the internet for hours every night now lol

    Good choice not to buy. If you were not convinced then it is best to avoid.
