    Vehicle : Vectra Hatchback

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 2.2 DTi

    Year : 2003

    Unhappy Some People....

    With the nature of my job, I meet lots of people with all sorts of different cars, from Fiestas to ST Mondeos, Subarus, Porsche, Range Rover Vogues etc.
    Along with this lot I work on a lot of Vectra's & Astra's. (Most being Lease Vehicles for the M.O.D or other large companies).

    Anyways, I get the occasional privatly owned Vectra, and I always ask if they've heard of Vectra-C.com. If not I explain breifly what its about etc, and leave them with a flyer. (handy carrying them in my van!)

    A 52 plate GSi Vec in Star Silver, and a Private Plate (I Think around 07) Vec Estate in Ultra Blue. Both had pleasent conversations with. However, today it wasn't to be....

    ...Pulled up to the car, a nice (all be it dusty) 55 plate PRE-facelift SRi 1.8 in Black. Meet & Great the cust, carry out the work. So I finish up, show the customer the completed job which he's very pleased with....

    ...I then ask if he has heard of us (Vectra-C.com)....and before I even finished my sentance:

    "I'm not intrested in the car at all, can't wait to get rid of it!", I kindly ask why, and he says its no Audi or VW, "although its a comfy drive and I got a bargin on it...and its cheep to run". He Continued...

    "I paid £8500 with 5k on the clock, I put 40k on it, and just sold it back to the garage for £6k."

    He then kept commenting on how good the car was, but kept saying he couldnt' wait till it goes!?. I politly ended the conversation and carried on with my shift.

    I dont get some people, his attitude was like I was trying to sell him an expensive membership to something of no use, (untill he relised what I was trying to advertise!), so started complimenting the car when he found out I was part of the Owners Club!!!! Arrghh, I don't know why, but that really annoyed me today. Well, untill I got back in my van, and heard a great tune on the radio! lol

    Rant Over!

    What was the tune?

    I know what ya mean, was outside an event a few months ago an there was 4 vec C's all parked up together, with mine in with them, so did my vec c duty an put the flyers under the wipers, as didnt know whose they were.
    Came out a little later to see one of the DJ's geting into the car, siad it was me who put the flyer on the car, an he said, that the car was nice, but he wasnt planning on keeping it, as it wasnt fast enuff for him....... (not sure what car, think it was the 1.9) and he was swapping it for the mondeo st

    Many Vectra owners have had their cars forced on them via company fleet policies.

    They hate them simply because they have less badge value in the Golf Club car park than turning up in a BMW / Merc / Audi.

    This is probably not going to change in the short term, as we are a nation of badge snobs!

    This one was privatly owned. I do a lot of 'company/fleet vehicles too. 9 times outta 10 they really like the car.

    Now thats a tune, love driving to that one, better thn some "proper" driving songs imo.
    I listen to all sorts of music (kinda have to being a DJ) but when it's a top tiesto track or the like...It always brightens up my day!
