    Default Time for the vectra to go.

    Hi folks,

    Well today could be the day the vectra and I part company.I have reserved a car and subject to the gaffer liking how it drives a deal will be done today.

    The car i have reserved is a fordfiesta zetec s in frozen white,2011 with 14000 on the clock.

    If I am being honest I am ready for a change.

    The vectra has in my opinion a great engine in the 1.9 cdti 16v and with a dtuk fitted I have surprised many a petrol car.I think you would have to look hard to find a better motorway mile muncher as well.

    But a few niggles have became too much e.g. suspension knocks,droplinks and uppercontrol arms needing changed about every 20 mins and I cant for the life of me stop the parcel shelf/tailgate rattling.

    also the vectra is no longer in daily use so no need for the diesel anymore,and as we have no kids we fancy something a little smaller and a hoot through the twisties hopefully.

    I will post a few pics of the zetec later if the deal happens.

    Ross.

    well it is confirmed,the vectra leaves on friday to be replaced by above fiesta.Found it really good to drive and love the voice control audio with bluetooth and the heated windscreen.Not as much power as the vectra but felt much more nimble.now all i have to do is relieve the vectra of the irmy grill,dtuk box and sony bluetooth stereo.

    I would just like to say thanks to all for making this an excellent forum with a wealth of knowledge(which saved me the price of a new inlet manifold).And also thanks to all those who have given advice,opinions on any problems I have posted on the forum.
