    Default new member question

    hi guys i have just bought a 05 plate vectra sri cdti 150

    it has had 2 owners and has done 100K but is in great condition, one thing i noticed today when i went back down to see it, i started it and i heard a sort of knocking noise for like 10 seconds then it cleared off, and it does it slightly wen i rev to about 1500rpm then let it idle, i can feel sum kind of vibration thru the car with it.

    the car only has a 30day drive away warranty with it, but i want some other kind of waranty.
    it has been serviced at a garage every 20k as far as i can see and i paid £4750 for it, when i drove it, it felt nice etc im just a bit concerned guys..

    the cambelt was just done 1000mls ago, i know its got alot of miles, i just cant afford for it to go wrong with a big job,
    ive been reading about this swirl valve thing and this might be wat it is, do you have any idea if this would be covered on a external warranty cover?
    perhaps ive done the wrong thing buying this, im concered now.

    i know they should, but this one dont.. lol
    i was concerned about eh miles on the car but im sure it will be fine for another 2 years with me, i do about 10k a year roughly.
    i took it for its test drive today and felt nice, not as much "in ur seat" as i expected tbh but im used to a 200bhp starlet gt ( which im now selling for the vectra)
