    Default Vectra Sold, Goodbye

    I had to do it, it had to go. Just too much trouble and expense.

    Yesterday traded it in for a 56 reg, 407, 2 litre diesel, luxury, 54k miles, full service history. Got £700 trade in for sticky Vicky. That was an increase from their original offer of £200. Also got a deal on extended 6 months parts & labour warranty for only £100. (well worth it).

    So I collect it Monday.

    *awaits comments regarding, ohh...blown turbos....poor electrics....*

    So, it's a goodbye from me. This is a great forum and most of you are really helpful.

    I may be back in a couple of years when I trade in the 407 for an Insignia.

    407s a good car. Rattling from the front is the bottom ball joints, but they are reasonably easy to replace. 407 also suffers from the dreaded DMF too.

    And you thought you had problems with the Vectra? Good luck hope you enjoy your new car, and can tell me I was wrong about Peugots.
