    Default Lost heart in the old girl

    9 Months of owning the vectra i've just felt like i've lost heart in her . Atm i'm just buying more and more things to make me wanna keep her. The total of what i've spent is now around 5k. And if i sell i'll lose a bomb and i dont yet know what could match it in looks/power/mpg and money. I've always changed my car every 3/6 months (i've had 17 and i'm 25) but i hoped the vectra would of changed that. How many owners on here keep there car for the sake if it and how many still have the buzz when they see/drive there cars?

    I think with me I've always been on the look out for something else whatever I've had - it's worth deciding what you really want first instead of just sapping continually, especially with the amount of money you lose on Vauxhalls...

    I have been the same most of my life,usually keep a car for about 6mths,the longest was a BMW 18 mths.At the moment there is nothing else out there that takes my fancy,so will be holding on to the vec.So know where you're coming from.It would be a shame to get rid of it after all the hard work and money you put into it.Its one of a kind and would be hard to replace

    Well i dont drink(very odd time) or smoke so after i pay my morgage the cash goes on the car. If i was to sell it i'd think i'll strip the car. Cos i would hate to see it driving about. Just board with it atm. Was offered good money last nite but told the fella a wanted a week to think about it.

    I worked out that i lost 22K in less than 6 years swapping cars every few months (that was a few years ago)

    I've only had 4 cars in the last 3 years now as i just can't justify changing them when i get bored (unless i put them on their roof)

    The last 4 cars I've bought new and replaced at 3yrs old, but you do lose a lot buying new, and I think I need to tighten up a bit (be more sensible) so probably next time I shall be looking for something a few months old with very low milage as there are some decent buys around on almost new vehicles. Next one might be the new Mondeo or maybe the new Insignia. I certainly could'nt afford to take the hit by changing every few months.

    i dont do it as i get attached to my cars and then its really diffcult to let them go so i end up keepin them all. i suppose if i was to change car every 6 months i wouldnt get attached at all, and it would be just a car. i wonder whats better lol
