    Default Vectra gone

    i have now got rid off the vectra after breaking down for a 3rd time i decided to get shot of the carp. I cannot stand unreliable cars this car has had almost £4K of new parts including an engine all within 3 months. Yesterday it suddenly stopped without any warning again wont start anymore same syptoms as 2 previuos breakdowns. I have'nt bothered repairing it this time been sold as spares
    i have had help from ppl on the site & im grateful for this i may stay around but dont think i'll touch another vectra thanks

    If you've got something to drive round in for now mate just hold fire- as soon as that Insignia comes out the Vec prices will drop through the floor!!!

    2.0T-Lots to play with under that bonnet, thirsty with a heavy foot but very nice mate- do it!!! :-)

    Not surprised you gave up on it. The car seems to have been permanently in the garage recently.

    right lets ask then

    how long has you new engine been in the car ??

    dont do anything rash as it could be just a iffy fuse for the cim its fuse 10 or 11 in the passagers side fuse box

    i had a vectra b that would just cut out and not restart nobody could find out what it was ..

    i cheched all the fuse to see if they were all ok and i mean i checked all , after i did this it never did it again

    none had blown wtf

    it cost nothing to do this but it did seam to sort it out
