    there a odd ball enigne .. you can struglle to get bits ..a mate really had problems when he did a rebuild couldnt get any bits even from vauxhall ... same as the 2.5 is so many ways but so so different in many others ...it wasnt fitted for long so 2nd hand bits are hard to find also ... it also has less power than the 2.5 .. .the cars are ak no reall problems the odd bush on the rear and rust in some strange areas ....

    In my opinion you should definetly go for the youngest 2.5 v6 over the 2.6 anyday. As has been said above there are loads of spares available as the engine has been around since 95-96.

    I would agree though that the 2.5 is more forgiving spares wise. I never had a jot of bother with my 2.6 and loved it to bits, but I'm glad I didn't need to find spares. Having said that, if it's been looked after and serviced regularly and properly, then it should be reliable. Go for it Kev, life's too short not to lol.

    The thing is , the guys offered me a px on the van I'm selling at the moment , I would only have the car for 6 mth max before I trade it on , it's just a means to an end at the moment .
    It helps me get rid of the van , and gets me back mobile for the time being .

    wrong,the 2.6 has more power and torque than a 2.5 v6,only the 2.5 gsi has more power.as to problems not too many issues,parts should not be a problem to get for the engine as the 2.6 was also fitted to the omega.ok you do get some things that do go out of stock but that can happen to any part
