    Default Maybe new Vectra owner needing advice please

    Hi everyone, first posting here, I have been lurking for a while.
    We currently have a 2.8 LWB Pajero and a Smart car. Although an odd combination this suits us as I (wifey) drive 4 miles each way to work weekdays in the Smartie and we go away in our caravan about 6 times a year in the Paj.
    We have 2 teenagers and 2 large dogs.
    But just lately we have thought it's a waste to have the Paj sitting outside and some weeks not even moving.
    We need an estate, with enough grunt to tow a caravan (1300 kg MTPLM) with all of us in it, but which won't cripple us with poor mpg on short journeys.
    It also needs to be reliable (I have no time for things that don't work).
    Looking to spend around £4500.
    Would the Vectra do it?
    Are there any known faults?
    1.9 or 2.2?
    Previously owned a Mondeo 2.0 TDCi, lovely car, but wasn't an estate then the dogs arrived, but Mondeos of a certain age have injector problems, do Vectras?
    Thank you very much for your help.
    Lynn

    Vectra estate can tow up to 1500kg so will suit you fine. 1.9 diesel would be the best choice probably the 150 but don't overlook the 120.

    All cars have their problems but mine has never gone wrong (touch wood).

    anyways welcome............

    I have the CDTi 150 and that's got plenty of pulling power. And does about 50mpg on a good run

    to the site, I have a 1.9CDTi (150) tow a caravan with no problems, only point to make really you wouldn't get the best mpg on any car on your daily mileage as the engine would not get to optimum temperature, normally return 44 - 50 mpg mixed running. with caravan down to about 35 -39 mpg
