Hi, I'm worried about the mileage on my Vectra 1.9 CDTI diesel 150 (2008).
Did a VOSA MOT check and the 2011 MOT mileage states it was at 148K but the clock is currently only showing 75K!
Full VOSA MOT history:
15/02/11 - 148,023 !! (MOT paper cert says 59,023)
01/03/12 - 71,453 (MOT paper cert says 71,453)
Service History booklet:
12/11/09 - 18,562
05/08/10 - 36,829
16/05/11 - 62,159
I've been trying to sell it and had 4 people (2 car dealers, 2 tax drivers) say its condition is not how it should be for a 75K 2008 vectra.
I've been in a 1.9 diesel CDTI 120 Vectra that has done over 200,000 miles and the interior conditon was only marginally worse than mine and yet it was used all day every day as a taxi. The 120 vectra sounded much, much quieter than mine and seemed smoother to drive too.
Mechanically I know my car needs a new manifold, the swirl bar has come off. Interior is a bit of a mess too, air vent flaps broken/missing, gear stick worn to hell, carpet worn, laquer worn off and scratched to hell on the internal door handles and handbrake.
I've heard VOSA can get the mileage wrong but this all has led me to think there's something dodgy about my car's mileage...
I've attached pictures of the wear and tear of my car.
Please, anyone with similar wear and tear, can you get back to me and let know what mileage yours has done! Or if yours has done 75K and is nothing like as bad as mine, please let me know too! I need to prove to Trading Standards that my car is in worse condition than it should be and I should be getting a refund from the dealer I bought it from!
