    Default Looking at buying an 04 / 05 Vectra - 2.2 Elite

    Evening all,

    It's been a few years since I was last here, I did have an '03 plate Vectra 2.0 Sri but got rid of that in '06.

    I'm looking for a reasonably priced car and remembered how much I liked my old Vectra.

    I'm looking at an '04 2.2 Elite I just wondered if there were any known faults or key points to check over when I go and see it.

    Any pointers..?

    cheers.

    Yeah, watched it...

    Funnily enough I remembered that my '03 was a 2.2 but I never had any issues with the fuel pump...

    I'm keen on the spec level of the Elite....

    They had really poor service.
    I'm unsure now about getting a 2.2 can't seem to find an Elite with much else rather than the 2.2..

    Keep your feet on the ground mate. There must also be very few 04 cars of any make which do not have (lets call it it) a weakness of some kind.

    And in defence of the 2.2, I think you will find that those fitted with the uprated fuel pump and regulator seldom experience a problem.
