    Mate had one - reckoned it misfired, but I couldn't tell. Had a few issues with the engine and spent a fortune on engine and driveshaft issues.
    I dunno if his was just a dud one, but it went like **** off a shovel!!!

    I have recently bought a 2006 Vec C SRi V6 CDTi hatchback, done 46k. I "upgraded" from a Vec B 2.6 SRi V6 running 192bhp. The C isn't exciting like the B, but it pulls well enough, can't see it pins me in to the back of the seat or anything. I love the cruise control, never had that on a car before.

    Economy is just under 28mpg, but that's short runs mostly, engine barely warm before it is turned off.

    An ex-Vauxhall technician told me he wouldn't touch one with a barge pole as he had seen some massive engine related repair bills, but isn't that the same for most cars?!

    Search Y30DT (up to 2006 models) and Z30DT (2006 onwards)
    If I saw one at the right price I would buy another one
    However it would have to come with a decent warranty
    Mine returns a typical 30mpg, two front tyres every 10K miles, servicing every 20K miles at £150

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 3.0 V6 CDTI

    Year : 2007

    Default

    I have a 2007 V6 CDTI, it's now done 72k and I love it. I had a few 1.9 [120]s as company cars and the V6 is sooooo much better. I get 55 mpg on a motorway run; over the last 7000 miles, I averaged 37mph and got 40mpg average.
    For a car that size I think that's absolutely brilliant.

    Would I have another, hell yes.
