    Hadn't noticed any strange noises but when mine had its first service after two years at Accrington Garages (I've just searched on 'Accrington' to find the original thread - can't do links, yet!) they reported some play in a track rod and wanted to fix it under warranty.

    Common problem on the vectra, vauxhall have had to change loads of steering racks.
    If your warranties out still give them hell, tell them its irrisponsible of vauxhall to let you drive around with a dangerous car ,they may still change it for you cheaper than normal.........they charged me £60

    I had mine in 3 times with noise from the power steering, they said it was within tolerance and wouldn`t sort it, it still whines, very high pitched, the missus can`t hear it but it bugs me ...

    JPC,
    Sorry for delay in replying - no, it wasn't Vantage, it was Accrington Garages, Burnley Road, Accrington. Mines not really 'stunning' and it doesn't have caliper stickers either. If you're talking monster & awesome, I bet it was Ian_C - sorry, I mean Ian_C's Vectra!
