    Default Unhappy owner from Cumbria

    Hi all! I found your forum whilst in a blind rage over my 2003 2.2 DTI SXI. Im 27, from Cumbria and the Vectra is my 6th car and most troublesome.

    Its been reassuring to read a lot of your posts about the suspension problems. Ive had a few myself, 3 snapped springs in 12 months, I had the creaky radiator springs too and snapped torsion bar. Ive also had the external temperature sensor go wonky, the windscreen washers have packed up, the radio loses signal all the time and water is somehow getting into the spare wheel well.

    At first I thought I had just bought an unlucky car (Im not a lucky person normally) but from reading some of the experiences on here I just have to put it down to the car being fundamentally flawed and unreliable. Needless to say I wont be reccomended the car or vauxhall to anyone I particularly like. My gut instinct was to avoid VX but I really thought they had turned the corner, unfortunately for me I was a bit off the mark with that assessment.

    On the plus side, the car is a pleasure to cruise about in and is fairly comfortable. It seems to have enough poke for day to day applications and isnt too bad on the fuel. The reliability really irks me though. The car is my second form of transport too, when the weather is better Im happier hooning about on my bike (Hayabusa).

    Well thanks for all the advice Ive picked up so far and I hope I can continue to understand why these cars suffer the ridiculous problems that they do!

    Take it easy
