    Default Introducing Myself.....

    Ok...Erm where do I begin....

    I best introduce myself as I intend to buy a Vectra within the next two weeks. Currently drive a VW Golf MK5 (Nice car but not enough power) saying that it's only a 1.6 FSi so wasn't intended to be quick but I fell for the looks...anyway that's now up forsale and I'm looking at buying a VECTRA 1.9 CDTI 150 SRI in Black..

    Loving the way these cars look can't afford a newish one so am looking for the models between 2004-2005...

    Is there anything I should check when looking at these cars inparticular...are there any known faults or recalls. thanks

    I'm from Castleford - West Yorkshire, Work In Leeds and Support Newcastle United (Someone has to)....

    Big hello!

    with the 150 cdti check the Swirl Valve linkage (use the search function in here) they can cause grief with the old design, EGR's can be troublesome, and Injector wiring loom to No3 cylinder.. Thats the main 3 things that have come to light...

    I think there is also an alternator recall as well on certain chassis number ranges?
