    sounds like a nice car and the boot IS massive, my only advice would be how much you paying? Can't think of anyother problems.

    Oh and welcome to the site.

    Not 100% but pretty sure you can get one for less than that.

    As a 2008 Vectra C it may still be under its original warranty
    This applies first until it has expired
    My advise it to use this and report any and all faults, no matter how trivial
    Even if they cannot be rectified if they return later then they will be recorded as no fault found and can be back dated

    Equally, there is also a second and third year, and these should also apply unless you expect to do a high mileage (60K and 80K miles respectively)

    You may receive a letter from Network Q recommending you extend the warranty for an additional 12 months
    Based on the above there would be little point

    You can, but as a Network Q car they usually add on an extra £500 premium
    As a result some dealerships don't even offer used cars on Network Q, and when you ask they wriggle and squirm to try and avoid it!

    £8500 will probably be the trade-in value, undiscounted
    Sadly this suggests the valuation for the trade in may be suspect
    Anyway time to upgrade and move on!
