    I had a hire of an early facelift 1.8 SRi
    I have to agree, in low gears it was very unresponsive
    I put this down to the weight of the car and what is basically an underpowered engine for that
    I also noted it had a 5 speed gear box (like my previous Vectra B) and it didn't seem to match the power bands (which a close ratio gearbox which I had on my Vectra B would have probably solved)

    It was quite similar when I was comparing the 1.9 CDTI and V6 CDTI
    Initially I thought the 1.9 was very good... but then I took the V6 CDTI on the same test road

    Hmm, difficult to help on this one without driving it and finding out if it's sluggish cos it's a 1.8, or sluggish because something is wrong...

    If you want it to feel quicker, do what I did today and drive a 1.2 Renault Clio for a bit (75mph in 5th and revving at nearly 4000rpm!). Got back into my 1.8 Vectra and it was like driving a Bently!)
