    Default Whats the thoughts on a 52 Reg 2.2 SRI

    Hi all, have been browsing as a guest for a while just keeping an eye on whats for sale. I've been member of VXON for a while & prior to that Cavweb going back a long time.

    Just got home today after spotting a 2.2(petrol) SRI on a 52 plate with Irmischer rear spoilers (x2) & front spoiler. Did 17k when it was first serviced & has done 3 or 4k in between its last services & now sits on 23k.
    Have spotted some shoddy body work on O/S/F wing where filler not been sanded to well which dealer hadn't spotted, I did as bumper didn't quite look like it was sitting right so I've got a good point to haggle with.

    Basically haven't been entirely sure what I'm after, diesel or petrol so I'm hoping if any of you guys could answer some questions.

    What sort of mileage would I expect from £40 roughly being driven sensibly?

    Does this 2.2 fall into the region that all were called back for timing chain? (Dealer said he'd check)

    Any other points I can look out for?

    It's up for £7995 and very clean, couple of chips on front & scuffs on drivers inside door handle but other wise very clean.
    Mileage in service book suggesting to me it had a cared for & very little used life.

    I fit handsfree kits for a living so I know all about ripping cars apart & have noticed O/S A pillar & C pillar don't sit right like all on the N/S but I pull these off daily so I could refit myself.

    Hi mate firstly welcome to the site. 2.2 petrol sri is what i am driving and although its not without its downsides its a good engine.

    Fuel consumption aint the best although i did get 45mpg when going down from edinburgh to billing last year. average for town driving is 25-30mpg.

    The 2.2 on veccy c has no worries with timing chains as this problem was sorted by vauxhall in the veccy b by putting in larger oil jets.

    Performance wise its there but you need to give it some revs to get the power and it dows fell a bit gutless sometimes though mines is an auto.

    i'd be a bit concerned with the bits you say werent fitting right though and also you may get a newer one if you shop around for similar cash.

    check out the common faults link here for more info mate.

    No not bad to be honest, looking under headlight with bonnet up all looked straight & bolts for cross member were rusty and slam panel looked fine.
    To be honest I'd put it down to being no less then a small dent from minor accident. Sanding marks in filler went back between headlight & front of wheel arch (about 8 icnhes I guess) & to be honest you have to look to see them & like I say the dealer hadn't even spotted it so should apply for a job there I think.

    I've seen some sites with drop down menus offering SRI 00->, SRI 02-> & also 4dr saloons, what Vectra C is classed as 4dr saloon. Thought they are all 5dr hatch's.

    Thanks

    All the SRi`s are all hatches mate. Mines a 2.2 SRi also, and the fuel consumption isn`t as bad as I thought it would be, certainly isn`t a guzzler. The 52 2.2 should have all the toys as well as they tended to start dropping them 03 on, till the new version (I think the steering wheel is an optional extra now!) .

    It has auto dipping mirror & has a sensor behind it against the glass, I presume this is rain sensor? Do they have autolights?

    Yep, thats the rain sensitive wipers, you should also have, rear cupholders, locking glovebox, cubby holes, maybe sunglasses holder and if you are lucky rear courtesy lights, this was dropped pretty quickly, as were all the other items in the list !!
