    I'm trying to find out the use of the previous keeper of my Vec.

    It was registered to Royal and Sun Alliance Finance, Group Fleet Management, anybody any ideas what Group Fleet Management is?

    Im worried incase it was used as a hire car and just been thrashed about. It had done just over 20,000 miles when i got it and was 2 years 4 months old.

    nope, it would have been used as a company fleet car, and as such quite well maintained, then disposed of just before it became 3 years old...

    with fleet cars, if it needs it, it gets it.. they won't have cars breaking down, so they just spend the money on them..

    i very strongly doubt it was used as a hire car as they turn over in around 6 months..

    yep, VW use Royal Bank of Scotland for theirs. With the lowish mileage on it (for a company car) it was probably run in well too, not like my old golf that sat on motorways for all its two years and 100k miles.

    at 20,000 miles prob not a hire car, they usually dispose of them around 13-14,000 mile mark.

    Sorry to disappoint you but it probably was a hire car

    Having said that my previous car, an Omega, was a hire car and it was the best car I have ever owned. And I have owned quite a few

    With so many speed cameras about I dought that many of them are thrashed about. Just enjoy the car, its not worth worring about

    Its a brilliant car i absolutely love it but its just the racket it makes on idle, im going to get a second opinion from another vauxhall dealer early next week. If that gets sorted then i'll be able to relax without thinking the cars going to break down......

    mine has had 1 owner which was a fleet hire firm, last owner was a busines manager who wanted a high spec car.. thats why when i got mine there were receipts for everything..along with the sports pack and "moving lights etc"
    only got 35000 on it when i picked it up
    so i would not be to bothered about the last owner...

    Mine must have been the same then. Big engine and a couple of extra bits like the Irmscher door sills and boot lip.

    The door sills are the best bit of the car i think

    My Omega when I had it was 1st reg'd to some Securities firm, always wondered if it'd been some managers hack, or a bod mobile driven by getaway drivers on protection duty.
