Bigdave and I seem to be on the same quest, to buy a Sig 3.0 V6 cdti!!
I havent yet picked up the black one that I posted about last week, what with work and all. But tonight I popped in to see the previous owner to find out if there were any problems with the car when they traded it in.
Turns out its on its second power steering pump, and the lady that owned had a "feeling" that the second (2 years old) pump was failing. Not much more than a feeling apprently. This was born from the fact that whilst out in it one day, there was a "funny felling" from the steering!!
there was also an intermitent cruise control fault.
On saying that, she loved the car and was sad to see it go. The main reason for trading was the need for 6 seats.
Her husband was saying that Vauxhall power sterring pumps are a known week point. Is this the case?
I did think I might still and go get it, with a warranty and if the pump fails then I can get it sorted for free. The car really is immaculate and they obviously loved it.
What are your thoughts?
