    Default Gearbox gone...........again.

    I've got an 04-reg Vectra 1.8 LS Estate.
    It's now 3 years old and has 116,000 miles on the clock. Gearbox went bang today.

    This is becoming a regular thing, it had been changed before at
    20000, 40000 and 63000. This seems like a crazy failure rate. I drive it quite quickly but nothing silly. I do however carry a large amount of kit for work (tools, spare parts, even whole printers) so I'm thinking it may be a combination of carrying heavy loads, underpowered engine and ultra high usage (I've done 1200 miles since last tuesday)

    Is there any known issues with these boxes being weak or having high failure rates?
