    Default Is the Insignia a lemon?

    I only ask this as me & the missus have become worried after reading many problems online about issues with the Insignia. Not just the Watchdog report next week, but users have complained about repeated knackered DMF's on mid mileage cars, various limp mode related faults, my mates cdti has broken a water pump at 75k and even ours had an inconclusive rattle that we are waiting to see if it comes back.
    Even the ethusiasts forum is still faulty and wont let me on.

    Im just left wondering if i should be worried about owning an insignia?

    Looking good so far then. Keep the replies coming in.

    My cdti160 is an '09 plate at 18k. It has the electric handbrake. I have around 2 months vauxhall warranty left, but an extended warranty is very expensive, so i want to set my mind at rest that i can live with a car that is as reliable as all my previous Vectras were.

    Keep in mind mate its a reps car like the vectra so there's now loads about and you only hear about faults on forums and the like. The vectra was full of faults in its frst few years, in fact some of them it never got rid off.

    Mines coming up to two years old and has done 22,000 miles. No issues so far other than the BCM recall for the 10.5my.

    My neighbours 09 plate SE on the other hand has had so many new parts it's practically a new car. Both are 2.0 cdtis
