    Default Cost of ownership

    1994 Vectra Elite estate 1.9CDTI, Iíve owned this from 1 month/400miles old and despite thinking of changing it on a couple of occasions couldnít see anything else with the same load space and comfort/equipment level.
    I have now come to the conclusion that I will not bother because I just looked what it has cost me in nearly 50,000 miles and 5 years. 3 services (ecoflex), 1 A/C service and 2 tyres, thatís it. Not even brake pads needed to be replaced yet.

    Two? Owners, both ‘Very careful drivers’ little spent over 50k. Would be a good add if you were to sell on the other hand things could be about to happen, I hope not.

    Sorry guys I meant 2004, if something goes bang now it stands me in at two thirds of nothing so I could either have it fixed and sell or just keep it, I really feel I've already had my moneys worth from it. Though the new Insignia sport wagon thing might tempt me when available, but still less load space in one of those.
