So the vec is going the journey soon and not sure whether to buy an Insignia 2.0cdti sri or an Octavia VRS 2.0 diesel. I could afford to buy a nearly new/used insignia as the prices seem very reasonable but i also have the option of leasing. I have had a good quote for leasing the Octavia VRS but probably not be able to stretch to buying this. So I suppose my question is two fold. Buy or lease? Insignia or Octavia???mmmmm
How much is the Insignia a step up from the vectra. Mine is 1.9cdti (150) and I do like it but have had loads of the usual issues (inlet manifold, EGR valve, snapped springs, glow plugs etc) Does the 2.0 cdti on the Insignia have any known issues. Is it best to go for the 130 or 160 etc...
Then there is the Octavia. VRS looks good and cracking reliability and build quality. i am drawn to the lease scheme through work as it is a really good price and ll I pay for is fuel.........decisions decisions
Any feedback would be great
