    Vehicle : Astra GTC VXR

    Trim : VXR

    Engine : 2.0t

    Year : 2013

    Default 1.8 Exclusive, what they like.

    My old mans looking at buying a new motor and at the mo our local dealer is selling brand new 12 plate Exclusive's for just under £12k £7k off list price but what they like. I know that they are the base model and I'm worried that if he buys one he's gonna hate it, at mo he's got a 2003 Omega CDX 2.6.
    Any advice

    In an Insignia, I'd imagine it would drink quite a bit of petrol mate as they are quite heavy

    Had a 1.8 SRI on hire last year. More power in my farts. Car is too heavy for the engine. Just my opinion.

    Agreed - get the diesel if he can as you need the torque to shift the car at all...

    Vehicle : vectra c

    Trim : ls

    Engine : 1800

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 132000

    Default

    i had a insignia 1.8 exclusive 09 plate as a hired car
    id thought id take one out to try it out to compare with my 1.8 vectra

    i loved the dash and the auto lights when i drove under the subway and came on when i went to the petrol station

    i took it on the motor way and it was really quiet

    i didnt really have any issues with the car

    i thought it was a bit under powered so im going to try a 2.0t next

    ive had my vectra nearly 6 years now and i think they look a bit out dated now

    this is what i want next

    Well it turns out that the 1.8 Exclusive at £12k was on personal contract so at the end of 5 years you either pay a big lump sum or give the car back so in reality you would be paying approx £17k anyways.
    So we have started looking at 11 plate SRi 2.0 CDTI Nav's as new they are £26k list but for a car that's only a year old they are only half the price (between 12 to 13k), what they like.

    Just as a random thought mate, it could be worth looking at a brand new per-registered one. You'll get discounts on it anyway, and vx are
    Doing 0% finance with no deposit up to 5 years with the 100k lifetime warranty. When you take all that into consideration it may become financially viable to go down that route if you can find a good enough deal...

    As for the engine, I'd go for the diesel over the 1.8 any day - I had one as a hire car a few years ago and it was awful in every respect...
