As you have noticed I’m a “yellow” here but there is one thing I have figured out, Vectra C seems to me to be one of the most popular model in U.K. Am I right? In here in Finland Opel has no longer been a “desirable vehicle. “ Why? The simple answer is RUST! In winter the roads are salted down especially southern part of the country.
I read an interesting article on newspaper. The topic was “The lifespan of modern cars today.” Ten years! Salt and water is the key thing here in Scandinavia. As you know salt softens surface tension of water. This mixture of saltwater vapour penetrates to everywhere. Especially electrical equipments are in danger. Short circuits and almost mysterioustroubles are what the car specialised electrical fitter has to face down every day. This is a pit funny but Mercedes rusts the most and has also bad electrical failures. Have you ever thought how many electrical motors there are for e.g. M.B 500?
