    Default Veccy C autobox problem

    Looking at another Vectra C with a gearbox problem, the problem with this one is that the car drives fine and everything but sometimes the car goes into limp mode, any ideas what this could be ???
    Cheers Del

    It's a 2.2 52 plate as it's described I think it's the gearbox that goes into limp mode, as he says it sometimes selects gear other times it goes into limp mode.

    Rather than guessing, if the fault light is on, why not get the fault code read out?

    £1700 for a veccy C with a dodgy auto box is very strong...if it was £1K then i'd chance it...

    Mate , you seem to be intent on buying a lemon car ?? the best advice I can give you is buy a manual , unless you have a money tree in your garden , forget the dodgy autos- the end lol.
