    Default Vectra C 05/55 1.9 SRI CDTI Known Probs Or Lookouts?

    Going to view a couple of the above Veccys this weekend and I have seen a few threads mentioning of this engine has weak spots. Is there anything I should particulalry look out for? Ask if any parts have been changed under warranty as I dont fancy big bills after purchase.

    Also whats a rough price guide for a 05/55 SRI CDTI 1.9 with 38k and other has 43K miles. Both have FSH, 1 owner, 1 Yrs T&T etc..

    Any advice much appreciated.

    EGR valve - pain in arse
    Swirl valve - very costly
    Dual Mass Flywheel - very costly

    All 3 of mine were done before I bought it. The EGR needed cleaning again and the swirl valve on mine looks a bit worse for wear already!

    Having said that... fantastic car. Lovely to drive. Loads of power. Tuneable.

    Get SatNav if you can.

    Im HGV driver so dont need SatNav, saying that if I did I aint really willing to pay the extra the garages seem to think sat nav & leather add to the value of the car..

    Would the parts you suggest be covered under the garages warranty that they offer?

    Is there anything else to watch out for when having a look around at the garage(s)? Im heading to Leeds & surroundings as this area seems to be in-undated with Veccys so seems a good bit to head for..

    If they wont haggle on price then haggle for an extended warranty. The more years the better. In my experience they can almost always do something. You just need to ask.
