    If this is the same Vectra that is in your profile, then that is fairly modified
    If it is not driver neglect, then where does the fault lie, perhaps it is owner neglect?
    Who is diagnosing the faults and completing the repairs?

    For a 2003MY Vectra, which model is it?
    What is the mileage and service history like?

    No probs with my 03 1.8 SRI, a bit of a "sticky" gear change when it's cold but it's always done that, for the last 50k miles anyway

    No problems with my '03 1.8 club gear box. Clutch took a bit of getting used to, and still can be a bit of a kangaroo, but it ain't any worse over the time I've had it.

    it has 75k on the clock all service history to press all work carried out by vauxhall dealers and they have said it is not driver miss use and keep saying it will be ok THIS time and since driver and owner are both me and pretty much same thing then it not owner neglect either this was my company car since new i bought it at 3 years old off my work i had no problems in that time and now its just being a complete liability as i have a baby due in febuary you can probably guess i have other things to think about

    My 03 1.8 LS had a torrid history with the gearbox, all at the end of its life.
    Started with a clutch at 80k, then the box went at 80K (4 days later), then the new box went at 80K (suprise, 4days later), then the new new box stuck in 5th on the motorway at............81k (the next day) on the way to London. I refused to drive the car after that and the leasing company took it away.
