    Default 3.2 GSi test 2mo. What should I look out for ?

    Post no.1

    I'm finally upgrading to a 3.2 as I own a Vectra B GSi at the mo'. I'm looking at a '53 plate GSi in the morning and wondered what to look out for which is common to this type of car.

    Thanks for that. It's good to know that they are not known to be problematic.
    I'll just look out for the usual things and try to screw the dealer in to giving me a warranty just in case.

    MPG wise, I average 30 at the mo' so I can't see 28 being any different (he says in hope).

    As far as I know mate, they don't suffer from any common problems. Engine is bullet proof as long as its correctly maintained.
