    Default vectra diesel advice

    One of my friends is looking into buying a diesel estate car,he has his eye on a vectra.
    whats the best engine model to buy?hes not looking for performance,just a good reliable workhorse.
    and what should we look out for?its going to be around the 2-2500 price range,so a pre facelift car.
    thanks

    Shop around, I sold my pre face 19cdti 150 Estate for £1800 and bought replacement facelift elite estate 07 plate for £2800 having said that I did have to do the timing belt and water pump for piece of mind.

    cheers Ronnie
