    Default Change Of Plan!!!

    Looks like i may have to change my options folks, the Signum 3.0CDTi deal isn't gonna happen now but never mind life goes on eh? May have to take a look at a Vectra 1.9 CDTi 150. Many of you (including Maverick) remark how well they pull and Big Sig pointed out to me that one of those would have a lot better torque than my petrol 2.2SRi especially for pulling a caravan. Reading up on this great site i notice that many of you seem to rate this particular Veccy. So it's back to the drawing board as they say. I am gutted about the Signum but it wasn't to be...long story! As regards the Signum though thanks to all of you for answering my questions, it's appreciated.

    TBH unless you really do a lot of caravan touring I would never buy a car solely for it's performance as a towcar. You probably do more than 10-20 times as many miles solo so that's what matters most. After all most decent cars nowadays can tug a fairly hefty caravan OK for the odd time out even if the consumption isn't great?

    I've towed caravans for over 30 years but for me I always choose the car for solo enjoyment with just an eye on the towing requirement.

    If you get a 150, get an auto one.

    You say get an auto one but Gsi3.2 remarked this when we discussed this a few days ago, "avoid the 1.9 auto.. we had one.. horrific turbo lag in 1st gear.. would not want to be pulling a van with one and trying to pull out of a roundabout"...his words not mine. I love autos in general but his comments made me think again.
