    Vehicle : Vectra cdti estate

    Trim : Get a

    Engine : Dirty diesel

    Year : 2006

    Default courtesy car confusion

    my vec went into the bodyshop on monday and we got a car from entrerprise for the duration of the repair, i specificaly stated to them it needed to be vectra size and a manual, low and behold we got an 07 passat estate auto 2.0 tdi, no good as swmbo refuses to drive any auto and i did specify a manual, had to take it as no other car's in that group avv, will call you 9 am and swap it tomorrow for you sir.......................

    well never got a call this morning so i called them at 10.05 and they said yes sir we were just about to call you for your swap, i jumped in the passat and drove to there office, on the way i noticed the mpg......23.2 mpg glad it was going back..............

    got there and all they had was a focus diesel , well cheesed of now as when was a focus the size of a vectra...............

    anyway got in the focus and it will do, drives nice and has a good sony stereo system in it, had a play with it and set the steering to sport's mode for a bit more feeling, it's a 57 plate 1.8 tdci duratorque 115 bhp, (with only 700 miles on the clock) titanium model and it is quite nice overall, dont worry i will not be getting one and hopefully will be getting the vec back thursday at the latest, hope so as i have some shiny new bit's and pieces to fit........

    please excuse the mpg pic camera playing up for some reason

    Think yerself lucky, I had a 3 cyl corsa for 4 days last week and I had to do a 250 mile round trip in it up and down the m6! it would slow down going up hill.

    Would have kept the VW though

    I had a corsa from the dealer a while back, it didn't say the engine size on the back but I knew it was a bit strange because it was doin 4 - 5 k RPM to move along the same as my 1.8 Vectra LOL When I got to work I opened the bonnet OMG it was a 3 cyl lawn mower engine

    Surely it's more economical to have a normal 4 cyl working much much less than that was ! was great fun though.
