    Default Vectra's sold...

    Oh dear, what can I say? My poor old Vectra, she was a strong one, but gave a few bits of bother with the engine, so decided to trade it in before I lose any more money on it. Managed to get pretty much what I paid for it in October, so really the only thing I spent was £380 on 4 tyres and £30 on rear brake pads. Enjoyable 6 months driving, racked up just under 9000 miles in that time.

    The replacement?



    (Not the exact one).

    Mitsubishi Lancer GS3 2.0Di-D in Stone Grey. First non-Vauxhall I've had since 2004 (3 Astras, a Corsa and the Vectra).

    Thanks folks.

    Wasn't fussed with the Insignia (too much like a bloated Vectra for my liking), and felt it was time for a change from the Vauxhalls.

    Was very, very close to buying a Mazda, but the Lancer is a nicer looking car, and has a stronger engine (the 2.0Di-D is actually the VW 2.0TDi 140PS unit along with the VAG 6-speed box).

    The one I've bought is the dealer's accountant's company car, 8 months old with 16k on the clock.
