    Default Towing to Leicester

    Hi guys, i'm new here. Been browsing the forums since I got my vectra last month, the sites got great info and a good little buzz about it. Good work.

    Was hoping that the first photo's I put on here would be a different topic but after a month of owning a 30,000 mile 54 plate Vectra here i am towing it from Bedford to Leicester to go back to the dealers.

    How ironic, a Mondeo towing a Vectra. I might send that one to Vauxhall with my complaint! .

    999.9 mpg - I should drive like this all the time!

    It is a private dealer not a Vauxhall dealer Gsi3.2 so they weren't interested in the costs of getting the car to them.

    Don't know why i've got a different display to you BigMan. The tow wasn't to bad actually we managed to get upto 60mph! for some bits and were overtaking other cars and everything. The towbar was awesome - 10 quid from LIDL's. Overtook someone else towing. They must have been gutted watching us wizz by! only took about 2 hours.

    Car is juddering upon any sort of acceleration and spanner light comes on randomly. Initially had it checked at a local garage who indicated that it is a fault on 3rd cylinder injector/wiring/ECU?

    45 quid to link it up to a computer to tell you that - What a rip off.

    Not really happy that it's happened to a car with so few miles but apparently i'm not the first. Just want the vectra fixed and back in my possession now as i'm currently driving a 1.2 micra!

    well, injector wiring harness's failing by the injector plug is a well known fault and new plug kits are avaliable from VX to fix it, so it should be an easy fix..
