    Default Does the 1.8 Petrol Facelift have a 6 speed box

    Thinking about buying a Veccie for my daughter and son-in-law for their wedding anniversary, but she prefers a petrol model.
    Do any of the 56/57/58 plated 1.8's have a six speed box?

    Cheers guys.

    I did'nt think they did a 6 speed box on the petrol models, as I noticed today that all the s/h petrol vectra's on display were just 5 speed. I asked the sales guy but he was unsure himself.. LOL
    Looks like it will have to be a 5 speed jobbie then.

    I must admit, I dont think I'd fancy going back to a 5 speed box now, that 6th gear on the diesel models is really great for motorways etc. I always feel like I should be changing into sixth when driving a 5 speed box car especially when on motorways.

    Thanks Guys..

    It may have.. but to keep price down a bit I'm thinking of a bog standard 1.8, I was just a little surprised to see that they were still fitting 5 speed boxes to them.

    On a serious note, I suspect it's to do with the torque the engine produces - or the lack of it, ie you would put your foot down in 6th gear at low revs and get absolutely nothing. Mind you, I found the same with the 2.2 Direct and that had a 6th gear...
