    Default Advice on possible Vectra purchase?

    Hi,

    I'm after some advice on a Vectra I have seen. Its a 2007 07 Reg VAUXHALL VECTRA 1.8 litre 1.8i VVT SRi 5dr, 18000 miles, 18" VXR alloys, up for £9.499.

    Is this a good price for the car? Also as I'm unsure whether to switch from diesel to petrol, how much does it cost to fill up and how many miles do you get out of a tank? what sort of MPG would I be looking at?

    With the difference in cost between petrol and diesel I am thinking of swapping from my current 307SW (2.0 HDi 136) which I manage to get around 41MPG out of, normally costing around £70 to fill up now and getting around 500 miles from that. I do not do many miles, around 9-10 K a year so want to see if the swap is worth it.

    Any advice would be great.

    Thanks

    Hi Rik, i brought mine a Sri 150 estate black for £12.5k from a car supermarket, only a few months ago from motorpoint, it had 4k miles on it. they had loads of both, petrol and diesel, on mine with the AC running all the time with about 75% town mileage i get circa 40-44mpg. On a staight run its close to 48-40mpg, but as we all know it aint cheap to fill it now!.
    hope this helps...

    I have been doing some research since you replied. It seems that these are going for around 8400 from most car supermarkets.The one I have seen is at a Ford dealer. I think I will ring them tomorrow and ask why they are asking over a grand more for theirs. The part exchange value of mine was 8100 so can't see them moving really.

    What sort of miliage do you get from one of these too? how much to fill up? mpg?

    Engine : Dirty diesel

    get a cdti if your buget will allow, even though the cost of diesel is around 15ppl more it is still a better option imo, either the 120 or 150 is good, our 120 is great and avv about 550 - 600 per tank full the 150 is a little better though

    And yes, it's the 150 model...
