    Default Things to look for on a 2.2 Petrol Elite

    I am looking at buying an 02-03 plate 2.2 Petrol Elite and I'm going to ask the question that all newbies ask, what things do I need to look out for when buying one?

    I've not got my eye on a particular one yet, still looking over the market at the mo. Will probably start looking at cars in the next week or so. I've been drawn to the Vectra from driving my other halfs Astra. She's had no problems with it where I have had loads with my current Ford.......

    Look at the servicing history and also check to see if that injector thing has been done on this that came up on Watchdog, I think it affected all 2.2 Petrol's.

    Other than that-the usual Rear Arms, Springs, Make sure all electrics work....??
