    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 06

    Mileage : 186000

    Default how many signum's....

    are Signum's a rare beast? I only ask because in the past 6 months I've only seen 1 on the road(and that was last week). do vaux not sell that many of them?

    I see an handful of Signums every day.

    They're rarer than Vectras but by no means scarce. I reckon you are seeing them but, at a glance, assuming they're Vectras.

    It's 'cos they are more exclusive than Vectras!

    The main reason is simply they were never intended to, and didn't, sell in the same numbers as the Vectra, so accordingly you'll see less of them around. Vx didn't help themselves by never really promoting and publicising the car. Practically everyone (as in friends etc.) who has seen my car likes the concept of the Signum and what a good car it is, they'd just never heard of it - yet they'd heard of the Vectra. Even a lot of members on here who have Vectras hadn't heard of a Signum until they'd seen it mentioned on here - very poor marketing on Vx's behalf. I think they pitched it at the 'executive' market when they should have pitched it at the general/family market.

    In France, I had people actually stopping by our car/caravan and just looked at it.

    On the towing scene, the Signum is fast becoming known as the forgotten tow car. They are becoming very popular now due to the cars lay out (short rear overhang) and good diesel engines, especially the 3.0.

    In my experience of towing, I would say the Signum 3.0 CDTi V6 is the best towcar this side of the big 4x4's. I think this is one of the reason the Signum and other large family cars are making a come back, people don't want to pay the tax to tow with the big 4x4's.

    I won't be in any rush to buy a towbar for the Freelander. I will wait until I have finished with the Signum before starting to tow with the LR2.

    Also the fact that the only people who buy them new are companies - I would be surpised if ANYONE has ever bought one brand new.... At list price...

    I noticed last time i was up north I say only one the whole time, down south they are less rare but not common! They don't rreally suit twisty country roads, so I wonder if that has anything to do with it
