    Default Signum buyers guide?

    Hello there,

    Im currently looking for a pre facelift signum cdti (1.9 or 3.0) and was wondering if there was a buyers guide anywhere? Ive had a scan but couldnt find anything. Im off to look at the faults and common problems forums.

    Hopefully my next post will be to announce my shiny new car!

    Thanks for your help
    Marlon

    That wise buyers guide is good, thanks

    My primary question is how tough the CDTI engines are, I'd prefer a 1.9 150 but they are around the top end of my budget. There are some higher mileage examples (40-60k on 04 plates) and was wondering what would seem reasonable for cars of this age. Obviously it depends on how the car was treated, but im wondeirng if its even worth going to look at these ones.

    Also wondering what particular faults beyond the usual wear and tear should receive special attention.

    right, well perhaps i'm not the best guy to talk to about the 150 engine.... but the signums only real faults are squeaky front suspension like the vectra's and an occasional appetite for rear dampers...apart from that they seem very well put together..

    Ta for the info, they are pretty well put together even the rough 4 year old ones have felt fairly solid.

    Well I didnt hang around, had a test drive in a mint 54 reg signum 3.0V6 and bought it! Pictures to follow......

    Any such thing as a haynes manual for these things? It would be handy to know how to break it apart when i get it home.

    not yet there isn't...but haynes are relasing one for a vectra very soon..and much of it translates straight over.

    You didn't hang around did you.....well done....the 3ltr is rock solid so you won't need to do much to it..
