    Default Hi Everyone

    Hi there, just found the forum so I thought I'd register

    I've got a 2007 1.9CDTi Vectra Elite hatch in black. It's an auto - my first one!

    Previous cars (not linear, owned two or more at the same time...) are:

    1999 Peugeot 306 TD Meridian - my current workhorse for soaking up company miles
    2004 Zafira GSi in silver - fast but thirsty
    2005 Renaultsport Megane 225 in black - faster but thirstier lol
    2001 Astra SRi 1.8 in black
    2001 Astra SRi 1.8 in black (not a double type, we actually owned two at the same time!)
    1999 Suzuki Baleno 1.6 (why???)
    1996 Mini Sidewalk 1275
    1989 Mini 1000
    1989 Nova SR 1.3 (uprated suspension, exhaust)
    1984 Mini 1000
    1987 MG Metro
    1987 Nova SR 1.3 (uprated suspension, exhaust, carb, cammed)
    1985 Nova L 1.0
    1982 Escort Mk3 1.6 Ghia
    1980 Escort Mk2 1.3

    So the Vectra is my 7th Vauxhall.

    Heh yeah ok, I'll take some once I've washed it next lol.

    So how is the V6 CDTi working out? My Father in law has a '56 Signum Elite V6 and it seems nice and smooth...

    Hmm, my dad has a current shape Zafira too. Bit of a Vauxhall family lol

    i love it fella i had a discovery before it and the difference is massive in favour of the signum,there is more room in the back than in the discovery believe it or not,and your so right the v6 makes it really smooth and not the usual sound of a diesel. mpg could be a bit better but with the smoothness its worth it

    I know what you mean about the rear legroom, the Vectra has loads more than our Zafira did. I'm going to miss the Zafira's extra seats though, they came in handy on occasion and my son liked sitting in the 'boot'. TBH if Vauxhall still did a full-size MPV I'd probably have one of those (if it was any good). We nearly bought a Ford S-Max but I wasn't going to fork out for a Titanium to get the refinements I wanted so, since we've just got the two kids, we went for the Vectra Elite.

    IMHO the 1.9 sounds a bit agricultural especially when you first start it in the morning. It goes well enough though, with 150PS and it's about twice as good on fuel as the Zafira was (especially as I'm not tempted to leadfoot it as much...). It's a bit like owning a taxi - Black Vectra diesel lol. I haven't put that to the test yet
