    Default looking at buying a cdti

    evening all new user here intro threads here http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...80-evening-all

    ill be looking a for a car to tow my nova about to the track and would relaly like a vectra being a vaux fanboy

    after some searching the 1.9cdti seems to fit the bill, they dont seem that expensive either (pe-facelift)

    had a bit of digging around and seems to be the main 2 faults are the flywheel and fuel pump/ecu

    how common are these to fail, obviously searching the net i will find horror stories as how many times do people do reviews unless they are bad

    so what should i be looking for when buying apart from the usual things

    will probably be a 54/55 plate which is in my price range

    thanks

    so whats the 150bhp one? 16v?

    so you say the 8v is more reliable, how is like for towing?

    The 120 8v will still be good for towing mate but 150 bhp 16v has more torque aswell

    Vehicle : vectra sri xp


    Engine : 1.9 8v

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 36000

    Default

    I would go with the 120 8v i am on my second one at the minute and far more reliable then the 150 16v. I sold my other 8v to my friend and he constantly bes pulling an 18ft trailer with quads on it and never gives a days bother, and if you want more pulling power buy a tdi tuning box which give serious good torque and bhp. I have had these in my 2 1.9s and trouble free and great for there money
