    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2005

    Default

    For the money they are spot on. EOBD is common to all cars so anything emissions related shold be covered. Even some of the more expensive kit doesn't cover Vectra C on anything other than EOBD so anything emissions related (and some auto box functions as they can relate to emissions) is generally covered. Pretty good value.

    When VX serviced mine last year and they put a fault on it (fuel rail pressure sensor, presumably because when they changed the fuel filter they didn't reset it) the cheapest piece of kit we have cleared the fault on Diesel EOBD.
