    The 1.8 is too small a engine for a big car like the vectra , you be better off getting the 2.2 maybe a bit more expensive but more performance and same fuel bills , if i was you i get the 1.9 cdti ...

    Im sure you guys must have a lead right foot!!!! I get 33-39mpg from my 06 Sri depending on whether its a long or short run, I really have nothing to complain about on reliability either, worst that happened was the wiper motor went but replaced quickly under warranty and not a hiccup since, she's been a joy!!!

    i know its a small engine mate but the 1.8 would suit the mrs better, she dont go far enough or put her foot down really to use the power
