    Default Should i get a Vectra ????

    Hello Peeps,

    At the moment i have a small, old, slow, crap fiesta and its now time to get a bigger car, im after a car that will fit my fishing gear in the back, have loads of room for four people. Good On fuel as i drive 50 miles a day, able to have a tow bar for carrying bikes around and most of all be reliable. I have always been into fords and was thinking of a mondeo tdci but a friend at work recommended a Vectra Hatch and as i know nouthing about vauxhalls i was wondering if you guys could help me with some background info like bits to look out for, what model to buy and age and what you recommend
    Any info would be great thanks alot

    Have you seen the name of this site, I think most would say yes

    Two of the most important things we'd need to know is your budget and are you a speed freak?

    If you only need room for 4 passengers a Signum may be better for your needs

    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : Club

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi

    Year : 2004

    Default

    I use a cdti 120 for work every day, 70 mile round trip. It eats miles and will cruise all day at 70, getting 50+ mpg

    If you give it the beans it shifts fairly well for a car that heavy, and it's the 8 valve so no swirl flap issues.

    If I had that sort of money I would look for a 1.9 150 with at least sri trim or pref elite trim.

    Do you want power? Do you want toys? Do you want spoilers and side skirts?
