    Default advice needed

    Hi , i bought a vectra C life a few weeks back , took it for a test drive and all was well , it is a 1.9 cdti auto ( wifes car ) , the engine managment light was on and they said they would fix it , this was 2 weeks ago as the the plates were being changed , anyway collected the car today and the light is still on , they said it is OBD exhaust gas re circulation and as it is still with in warrenty vauxhaull should fix it , is this a common fault ?

    second one and a little more worrying

    when at 60 - 70 mph and you put you foot down it shows D and the revs just rise and the car slows , if i select triptronic type thing it will drive fine in all the gears except 5th ?

    they have a recall on those for the inlet manifold,same fault code,they also replace the egr valve,they both suffer from alot of soot (carbon build up)then just run slugish...best get to the dealer and check the warrenty matey..

    spoke to the dealers ... they say the part is on back order and could take a month to come in

    tried the car again today and when stuck in traffic the temp gets to 90c and at this point the gear box plays up .. Vauxhaull say this could be caused by the other fault .. cant see it me self

    any ideas ?
