    Default Vectra 2.2 LS Automatic

    Hi Guys

    Some advise please, I have seen a Vectra 2.2 LS auto hatchback 2002 52 plate for sale nearby, low mileage and full history with towbar. I am looking to swap my Pug 406 Diesel Estate for the Vectra as the wife can only drive an auto and we really need two autos in the family. What MPG can I expect from this car roughly? Worse and best if poss? What are they like for towing a 1217kg Caravan? What are they like for reliability? Always had Vauxhall automatics before inc 2 cavaliers so would prefer Vectra to any other manufacturer! Thanks in advance

    With the auto and general driving I'd expect about 30mpg, and be happy with anything more. Only major issue on the old 2.2's was the cam chain snapping due to blocked oil nozzle, but there is a dealer recall for them to fit a larger nozzle...

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Elite Auto

    Engine : 2.2 Direct Petrol

    Year : 2006

    Default

    Mpg - about 25-28 in town, 35-40 on motorway, about 30-32 on average
    Reliability - autoboxes very reliable (japanese sourced)
    Caravan - not a very torquey engine, but should be fine once up to speed.

    Hope that helps.
