    Ive just got rid of a 2.2 - Had it a few years and in my opinion was a great engine.

    It was in the Vec B shape but more or less the same, I ended up replacing head gasket, etc but at 112,000 miles.

    Its quite a reliable engine, its no slouch, but no fast car either if you see where im coming from ! Its a smooth engine and if I were to buy another, i would certainly look for something around this sort of mileage.

    All in all, I was happy with the 2.2 for the 3 years I owned it, and only really let me down after id covered nearly 50,000 miles.

    Hope this helps !!

    Forgot, for a petrol 2.2 - its not to bad on fuel. Tickle it, you'll easily achieve 35mpg or perhaps a little more.
