    Smile Buying a Vectra C SRI - Any Recommends

    Hi all,

    I am looking to buy a Vectra C, new shape in the SRI model. Could you please recommend which model I should buy. I was looking at the 2.0T but it might be a bit juicy on pertol or should I go for the SRI diesel. Also which engines would you go for.

    All recommenditions are welcome.

    Thanks in advance.

    Depends what your after mate are you looking for good performance and good eco then go for the 1.9 150
    if you prefer petrol like me the 2.2 direct is ok on the juice and for power but some say there is not much difference in the 2.2 direct and 2ltr turbo in eco so completly up to you

    Personally i'd be going for the 2.0T that you suggest, I would avoid the 1.9CDTI - that's my personal feeling, there are plenty of peeps who have had no probs with the CDTI but far too many with big probs IMHO !!

    But If you are doing High milage it would be worth
    considering getting a 1.9 i use to have one never had a problem and if your buying new it will be covered by the warrenty

    suppose it depends on how many miles you do..I was impressed with the diesel, & I am sure there are thousands of happy 1.9 owners out there - performace & economy, its just that I was put off by the reliability, & I only do around 10K. also look at the 2.2 engine...

    I do about 30k miles per annum, and bought a petrol

    Why - Because it was about £3k cheaper than the diesel with similar mileage / spec

    That's a lot of miles to make up before the diesel pays for itself

    As for the choice of 2.0T and 2.2 Direct, that's your choice. There isn't that much in power, but I would imagine the Turbo has a massive advantage the way it delivers torque, but my 2.2 has enough 'GO' for me
