    yep i agree car isnt old with only 40k on the clock and a new alternator was fitted a few months back. The AA guy, said the 2 biggest faults on the Vectra were the Altenator and the Diesel Particulate Filter. Dont quitw know what that is, bt there we go!

    I had to replace mine at about 48k! Not a big job or too expensive really. Deisel particulate filter's are only on the newest models, it's part of the exhaust system for emissions. Most manufacturers are having issues, some of them are setting themselves on fire!!
