    Default vectra 1.8 design. only 3 weeks old. already having issues

    i have a brand new 57 plate vectra design 1.8 petrol.
    since driving away from dealer i noticed the extremely light steering which when driving at speed causes drifting at 50-60 mph. also the car doesn`t like holding its own at lights. clutch judders and also the car cutts out almost stalling without the engine need restarting. it occurs in any gear at any time. this has happened dozens of times in the 3 weeks i`ve had it...... any advice would be helpfull. the car is on motability. but the dealer is being unhelpfull.

    drifting at speed...check tyre pressures first..never assume they are right.. then it's into the dealer for a check on the tracking if it still persists....

    Clutches are a known issue..ask them to contact VX technical and they will put them in the picture..
