    Default and I'm outta here

    I traded my 2.2dti SRI on the weekend, I've only had her since September but I haven't gelled with the car, I've found it boring not only to drive but just to be inside, the outside looks ok though.

    Admittedly its never let me down, though I've not gone a month at any time without spending money on her, bearings, boost sensor, disks, calipers, pads, vacuum pipes, boot struts, new dash cluster, crap stereo, and now a glow plug failed, fortunately the garage where I traded didn't notice.

    I've gone back to Seat, the wife has a Toledo 1.8SE which is great, and I had a 1.9tdi before the Vectra as well, but this time I've gone for the top spec 2.3 V5, with electric seats, cruise that works, built in satnav, a quality stereo and changer, headlights that work, a bigger boot for me golf clubs, and 170 ponies to play with, and man, the low down torque is staggering, it pulls from tickover. The downside, the best I can expect to average is 30mpg, but I was only getting 36 in Vectra C anyway.

    I know I shouldn't tar all vauxhalls with the same brush, but given that my C didn't blow my skirt up, I can't see me ever buying another Vauxhall.

    But, you guys have been great, thanks for the help and advice, and its good to know, that even if I'm not mad about Veccy, atleast someone is.

    Never let you down?
    If I had all that to deal with in just a few months, I think you would be putting me in a box

    Well, I meant never left me stranded, and even in the snow started every time.
