    Default Vectra 1.9 CDTi buying advice..

    Hi guys,

    I'm having a look around at the 1.9 CDTi version of the Vectra C. If I'm going to replace my 2.0 DTi with another Vectra, then I'd be inclined to get the newer engine.

    Firstly, am I right in thinking they came in 120, 130 and 150 forms?

    How do each compare in terms of:

    Power difference,
    running cost differences,
    fuel consumption,
    reliability,
    Lastly.. tune-ability?

    The 2.0 DTi wasn't too bad of a shifter, but I quite fancy a little more vroom and must admit I wouldn't mind the power of 150bhp in diesel!

    Only 120 & 150 as far as I know mate.

    I have a petrol at the moment - don't do enough miles to justify paying the extra money for the car.

    They must be good though, enough people have them!

    I've driven two 120's and own the 150.

    The 120 (Vec.) felt similar in terms of pace to the 2.0 dti I had in my last Astra.

    The 150 feels much quicker. Both can be mapped to add about 30 bhp.

    Check Auto Trader Faz, I've seen a few 2.2 DTi models that are newer and less miles than your old one well within your budget.

    I'd assume the 2.0 dti astra is quite a bit lighter than the vectra c, so that would make sense.

    I've considered the 2.2 dti, however reading topics on this site gives me the impression that they're generally the weakest of the engines in terms of reliability?

    Thumbs up

    I've Just picked up a 48K 150CDTi 2005 model for just over £6K
    I love it. Find the bargains, they are out there. I go's like hell-don't settle for a 120BHP
