    Default Gear Box

    Is it just me or have vauxhall never made a good box. I spoke to a few mates about this and they all say similar things. Mostly second third gear change is a b*&%$rd and notchy and others who don't own vauxhalls say 'great engines same about the box!!' My 13 year old Fezzy has a lovely, slick, smooth action whilst my 54 plate Vec is stiff as hell!! Anyone else think there box is rubbish???

    Feel better knowing its a known problem. Picked up my first Vectra 2 weeks ago (1.9 CDTI 150) and I must say that I find the gear change from 1 to 2 and 2 to 3 ..a bit crunchy shall we say (?)

    Same here matey especially from cold. Needs a firm tug to go from 1st to second and a good push to get it in to 3rd. Other gear changes are fine and the problem shifts get better once warmed. I tried double de-clutching but it never helped either. even blipping the throttle doesn't help. Think i'll just have to live with it!!!

    Every car, new or old, has something odd about it mate. Thing is - all of us demand perfection nowadays and find anything less hard to live with. I know..I'm one of em
