    Default V6 cdti, Auto or manual?

    I've seen a preface V6 I'm going to have a look at but it's an auto which scares me a bit as I've only ever driven manuals and have always been led to believe that manual is best.

    Am I best off avoiding the auto V6 and looking for a manual or are they ok?

    Depending on source, make sure it has a warranty or buy the AA repair breakdown

    Go for it, if you can afford the fuel and road tax. You will not regret it. If you can't afford the running costs don't even take it for a test drive cos you wil want it.

    In all fairness I seem to be spending the same if not less to run the vectra as I did my Mondeo 1.8 petrol that was only a year older and had just covered 30k so a fair comparison I guess.

    On the motorway though they are pretty good I got to cornwall on less than half a tank which is 360 miles for me. And that wasn't miss daisy either.

    With an auto you don't need to worry about DMF but you do have the problem of DPF.

    one good thing about the 3.0v6 auto is the mpg. very little difference in fuel economy compared to the manual with this engine, so if you like an auto box there's no reason not to get one.
    different story with the 1.9s.

    Having come from a GSi auto to a V6 CDTi manual, in a perfect world I'd have had another auto but as I tow a boat, the manual suits me better.

    The V6 CDTi engine is soooo suited to an auto box and the times when I'm not towing, I really miss the auto box .

    So although I've got a manual, another vote for the auto box.

    If you want to swap cogs quickly on the manual box, it can all seem a bit slow if you like to do things smoothly.... accelerate... wait for engine revs to drop, little more wait, then change and get power back on.

    I have only ever driven the manual but do feel the car/engine would be more suited to the auto box.

    I don't know what real world mpg you will get with the auto, but it will proabaly be like most vectras: thirsty round town, good on motorways... very dependent on how you drive it
