    Default Help!!!!!!! What do i buy!!!!!!!!

    please please help.
    i am a newbie to the site and am looking to buy my first signum. i have had my share of vauxhalls and its time to get griffin back in my life. i am used to running v6 petrols (cavalier 3/ vectra b) but now have a family and am looking at a diesel. i have been put off of the cdti150 as i dont wanna be throwing money at it so am trying to choose between cdti120 and 2.2dti. i have heard conflicting opinions and my head it totally fried trying to choose. i have just under 2000 and every cdti i find in this price range at the moment is in need of a timing belt/waterpump change .
    your opinions and advice will be greratly appreciated
    cheers

    Don't be put off the CDTi 150 I have done 38K in 18 months with not a single reportable issue of any sort. The engine is fine if you know what to look for and trust me any Mondeo BMW or VW diesel will face the exact same issues if not worse.

    if the budget can run to one by all means try out the 3.0 V6 CDTi but otherwise consider the 1.9 CDTI bought with low miles and looked after it is a wonderful car to get.

    To be fair finding any car reliable at that mileage will be a toss up for luck matey. Depending on the miles you drive don't rule out a lower mileage 1.8 VVT facelift either they go for about £1K less than the CDTi and may be an option given lower cost and lower petrol prices over diesel?

    Vehicle : vectra v6 cdti

    Trim : sri


    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 70000

    Default

    Just depends on how many miles you do in my mind,i used to average around 28 mpg in my 2001 2.6 gsi and i now average around 40 in my signum cdti,but i do miss the growl of that v6 and tbh it was a more reliable car,you obviously like your big petrols if you dont do massive miles you could get a mint v6 petrol vectra

    I've a 1.8 vvti, and my third vectra, i am only getting very slightly less mpg than i got out of my previous 1.9 cdti 120, and i get more mpg than i got out of my old 1.9 cdti 150.
    You get a lot more for your money with a 1.8 vvti as well
