    Default I'm PX ing the Vectra... I've finally had enough!

    Well, after 11 months of troublesome and annoying motoring I'm getting rid of my Vectra. Its a shame as its a well equiped car which is almost completely fixed now but I have no confidence in it and to me its just not much of a drivers car.

    The only problem it has left is a droning noise which isn't the tyres or the wheel bearing as they've all been replaced.

    I've spent a small fortune on making it look better and run right but I still don't particuallarly like it so I'm getting its rival... The Mondeo. The deal is done and I should have it next week when the transfer docs for my number plate come through. Its a 2005 Zetec S TDCI so it doesn't have as much equipment as the Vectra but it drove so much better.

    Anyway, thanks to everyone for the help on here.

    Karl.

    it is pot luck,.. I've had 3 Vec C cars, first a 2.2i direct which was a bag of expensive spanners, .. but liked it and got 2 CDTI 150s since and had no problems. My bro had aZetec Diesel Mondeo,.. same problems and cost a bomb,.. but it's just luck of the draw. I do hear they drive better tho.

    I'm sure it is pot luck but I just cant see it being worse than my Vectra has been. I could be jumping right out of the fryingpan and into the fire but hopefully not. I think the Vectra is a better looking car, especially at the back but I'll make the Mondeo look OK in time too. I'm looking forward to properly working cruise control!

    Why cant I say I don't want to pay to be able to advertise anything when I'm selling the car? It was only a statement that its going "as is"

    Well, my Vectra goes this week and typically its been running like an absolute dream... For the first time since I got it I've actually enjoyed driving it!

    Too late now though, I just hope I'm doing the right thing!

    So, the new car is here. Not to everyone's taste and it's a fairly old girl but I love it. It drives so well. Needs a couple of little things sorting like a small scratch on the off side door and a wheel refurb but other than that it's spot on.

    Just waiting for my transfer docs to turn up so I can get my plate on it to hide the age slightly!
