    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.2dti Auto

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 200021

    Default New Vectra owner

    Hi All,

    just purchased an 04 Vectra Elite, 2.2dti auto with 195k miles on it for £400. In black in timewarp condition for such a high mileage car. No timing chain rattle, smooth gearbox and almost everything works.

    My first car was a 1.0 Corsa B and was the most reliable car i've ever owned. I've had two Honda's and two Audi's since then and they've all been money pits.. most recently my Audi TT which is modified and drinks petrol.

    Anyway, a couple of questions regarding the Vectra:
    1) Does the 2.2dti have a DPF filter? I know the Signums and Auto / Estate CDTI have them. The car came with 12 months MOT and no black smoke at all.

    2) Brake pad warning light is on but new pads all round. I'm assuming the pad wear sensor is a plastic-type thing on the NSF similar to Saabs?

    3) Cruise control not working, would this be because of the pad light being on? Else I know cleaning the contacts in the stalk could fix this

    4) Electric mirrors not adjusting, again..probably contacts on switch? The windows are a little temperamental too so I might just replace the switch altogether

    Other than that i'm very happy with the car. I'm going to change all fluids and filters this weekend just for peace of mind

    Welcome, the mirror issue is probably the switch needs cleaning. Certainly the easiest thing to try first. There is a thread about it somewhere with a useful video in
