    Default 2.5 year Vectra 2.2.DTI - the story so far


    These forums are very informative. Below is a brief potted history of my current Vectra in no particular order........

    - 2.5 year old 2.2 DTi Elegance with 79K on the clock
    - engine management light intermittent at 57k, after repeated dealer visits changed engine turbo at 59k
    - on third pair of front tyres, original back ones still in place, though one back tyre worn on the inside. One tyre fitter said it should be changed and another one not.
    - replaced nearside headlamp bulb three months ago and the offside one has just failed
    - driver's door seal split at top of door and subsequently replaced
    - cruise control sometimes not engaging and fixed with replacement of clutch spring
    - seat back fabric difficult to keep clean!!
    - mpg decreases in the cold weather, currently at 46

    - booked into garage to look at a 'rear thud noise' when going over speed bumps or under heavy braking. Don't think the air-con is working at it should be, prone to misting up windows and air throughput is low. Any clues on this last point or any others appreciated!


    Have to say overall I enjoy the car and am due another one this June!

    Welcome aboard!!! Nice to see another 2.2 DTi, and also another Cheshire member - were abouts are you?

    Make sure you get yourself added to the North West Owners list!

    Needless to say, you will be hounded for car photographs - it's the LAW!!

    Hi Shamus.. Welcome aboard..

    Misty windows and low air thru-put??

    Sounds like it's time for a new pollen filter to me... Changed mine to cure exactly those faults and it's worked.. Pollen filter found under the splash panel beneath the passengers wiper. Lift the bonnet and there's a little flap there to open.. Bit fiddly but nothing at all major..

    Thud from the rear?? get your rear dampers checked... Not un-common for them to fail.. Battle hard and you'll get them changed under warranty.. it's a well known failing..

    Thanks for your comments.
    I live on the Cheshire/Flintshire border.

    Hope my next Vectra plays CD-R discs. My present unit the CCR2006 has an adversion to these...........

    Between me and the missus, we've had 5 vauxhalls in 5 years and yet to find one factory head unit that likes CD-Rs, they normally get replaced with something better after about 3 months max!
