    Default 1.9 CDTi comparison

    Hi,

    I've reached that stage where I'm looking at a new car and have shortlisted down to the vectra 150 SRI CDTi and the Avensis 150 2.2 D4D. Can anyone help me decide between the two please?

    I'm a little concerned of what I've read about the DMF problems with the Vauxhall diesel engines. I currently have a ford focus TDCi, which also has this same problem, although ford class this as a "feature". I appreciate the avensis is not without problems, e.g. melting headlights! So can anyone convince me why I should choose the vectra over the avensis.

    Cheers

    Dave

    IMHO The Avensis is a nasty looking car, we have a huge fleet of them at work because Carillion seem to like them for some reason. They are so bland and it seems that you have to be equally dull to drive one. We even have a couple in a turd brown colour - why would anyone choose such a colour.

    The Vectra also seems a bit more lively than the Toyota on the road although this could be more related to the driver :-)

    Depends how old you are :-) I was going to get the Avensis but it's a bit of an old mans car. Also you will pick up a 3 month old Vectra for the same as a 18 month Avensis mate.

    Avensis, Bland, plasticy, uncomfortabe, anodyne, noisy.

    Vectra, refined, comfortable, not as plasticy, lot more interesting.

    I've been in an Avensis recentley and couldn't wait to get back into my (then) Vectra.

    Are you sure the toyota does not have a DPF? I thought most modern diesels had them

    I have looked at the toyotas and current nissans, I found them very bland
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Yes, I do agree with you on the 'old man' syndrome and no, I don't have an interest in brown turdy coloured cars I just appreciate the reliability associated with toyota.

    Those 1.9 CDti owners, are you happy with the ownership of your car?
