    Actual Failures
    • Brakes failure: RBT park brake efficiency :15% even though I can jack the car up, whack the handbrake on and tighten the wheels to 280 ft/ib without them moving
      Exhaust emissions the engine was cold by this time and with all the other failures they decided not to bother warming her up
      Offside rear brake cable insecure [3.5.1d] needs that handbrake clip thingy that pinged off and went missing

      Nearside (steering rack mounting at bulkhead) Steering component prescribed area is fractured [2.2.C.1h] **DANGEROUS**I think my old GTi had this very same issueanyway this was the big failure hence the massive DANGEROUS because in essence the steering rack has fallen off
      Nearside front macpherson strut has excessive movement at the upper attachment [2.5.A.1c]So is this the top mount? cos thats been changed for a newer item as the old ones were ****ed or could it be the lowering springs?

    My 2008 vectra just passed its 2nd MOT with no advisory this week. Hope its as reliable as my old 2002 Focus that went through its last 5 MOT's no problem. Really reiable car, only had to service it and replace tyres, discs + pads. still had the original exhaust on at 10 year old.
