I'm looking to return to the fold having sold my Vectra 1.9cdti SRI a few years back now.
I've seen an '05 plate Vectra 3.0cdti SRI Auto with 70k and lots of extras, which tickles my fancy.
Are there any particular problems these regularly suffer from? I'm thinking EGR, DMF etc? As far as I can make out, the overheating problem these engines had in Saabs was particular just to that installation, and that the Vauxhall ones aren't troublesome?
Will an '05 3.0cdti have a DPF? I'm rather hoping it hasn't as my 56 plate 1.9cdti didn't - hate DPF's for the copious amount of fuel they use to regen every few hundred miles, and the associated problems if they don't do the regen cycle properly!
Lastly; am I right in thinking that an auto with 70k is likely to be more reliable (transmission-wise) that an equivalent manual?
Thanks for any help guys - I must say it's nice to be back on this Forum - having subscribed to several others (different manufacturers) since selling my last SRI; none of them are a patch on this one for the friendly, helpful subscribers.
