    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 100k

    All,

    Question is simple - would you buy one if you could?

    reason I ask is a mate at work is looking for one.. He has actually arranged to go and see this this am:

    Wondered what the general thoughts on these were - and is there anything he should look out for and avoid?

    Cheers A

    Check the obvious but make sure it comes with a good warranty not just a traders 3 month one.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Engine : 1.9 cdti 150

    Default

    I love them and when ive paid off my car will be going to buy one, the reason i dont yet is because i have to pay finance and the insurance is a little too high at the moment but...

    1 more year and i will be looking to get one. Im looking for a 6.0 vxr tho... Driven one around town and its a nice easy drive, take it on the main roads and its a bit different. Bit of an animal at full throttle, especially round corners or roundabouts.

    It does like a drink tbh but if you can drive sensibly then it does drink like the v6 vec, on full throttle, with some mods to make it drink a bit more, so it is just a really thirsty car lol

    I'd consider one if I didn't need a 4 door.
    I checked these recently on Ebay and they're fetching from £10k.

    Could be worth waiting for the VXR8 to come down though as they can be had for £25k now :-)
