    Default Greetings

    Hello all, Well now, as a not quite reformed Fordist, ( sorry still have a Mondy as well ) I'm now into my tenth day of Signum ownership. I have just got myself a 53 plate 2.2 Direct Design in silver. Already done the thick end of 1500 miles in it and can honestly say that I'm 99.9% delighted. A wee niggly problem with a stuck tailgate lock has led to it being back at the dealers for now and me adding a Clio loaner to the drive meanwhile. Hopefully this is a minor teething glitch and we will soon move on. Loving the car otherwise so far. Would have included a pic but it's ...um...not here ! I live in Cheshire but took it on a business trip to Scotland this week and really enjoyed the flexibility of the petrol engine after 12 years of mainly Ford based dieselism. ( sorry for blaspheming on my first post ) Really like the firmish suspension setup and the regained confidence to overtake safely. I look forward to learning from all you experts in things Vectra/Signum on here. Seems a very informative site.

    Welcome to Vectra-C matey. I did the opposite of you in that having run Vauxhalls forever I bought a Ford. Didn't get on with the dealer though (M53 Ford) so swapped back with the next motor.

    Tailgate shouldn't take long to sort out. Take it it's not a VX dealer with the loan car being a Clio?

    No it was from an independent dealer. They did try to fix it yesterday but it needs some more complex form of witchcraft apparently. I am self employed and use my cars in "van" mode during the week so the tailgate is pretty vital to me. Wish it had a normal keyhole/lock frankly. Sometimes cars are too complicated for their own good. The retiring Mondy estate has been a great car but is now getting long in the tooth at 150k miles. The Signum is nearly five years old but had only 34k on it. Still undecided whether just to keep the old car as a spare as it would not be worth a lot but is still quite functional. The Siggy came with a fridge thing which I don't have room for as my cars are always full of my work kit so I might look into selling that. I really like the way the seats fold flat and easily. The privacy glass is also great as my stuff is less visible particularly when parked up if am away from home overnight.

    So far, really chuffed with it.

    The fridge thing is a Travel Assistant. One went on ebay not long ago for £87 plus £20.00 Postage.

    There are a couple of excellent VX independents in Cheshire if you get stuck in the future.
