    Default Hello from Manchester

    Hi there all you Vectra and Signum owners, hows it going?

    My name is Andy I live North East of Manchester, Stalybridge to be specifc, for anybody who is local.

    I have just re-joined the Vauxhall family after spending the last 7 years driving a Ford Mondeo. Prior to that I was a big Cavalier fan and have owned every mk from a MK1 right throught to one of the very last ABS Cavaliers.

    I know its sacralige but I loved my Mondeo, it was a very reliable car that never let me down once and cost peanuts to keep on the road. Sadly keeping it on the road was one thing, running it was another. It was well maintained and serviced yet while it still performed well enough it drunk petrol and was robbing us blind. Even driving like an old man it was only returning about 22MPH.

    I have just purchased a cheap 04 2.0 DTI Vectra club. Its very tidy for its age and runs really well. I know these are not the fastest of cars but for an old duffer like me its perfomance is more than adequate.

    That said there are some minor issues which will need sorting out. Clunking from the off side front suspension (dont know how I missed it on the test drive) I have only had a quick look with the wheel still on, drop arms are brand new and there does not appear to be any play at the wheel. Best guess at this point is that the nylon sleeve has worked its way up the spring and is doing nothing.
    Other than that it takes ages to warm up (or it appears to) thermostat and/or temp sender. I am also getting a bit of water in the boot which looks like the aeriel rubber. Other than that it appears to be very clean for its age runs great, is brillant on fuel and looks like it could prove to be a bit of a bargain.

    I will get some photos up as soon as I can although being a club there is not much to see.

    I hope I will be able to contribute something to what looks like a really good community.

    Andy.
