    Default Hi from sunny Scotland!

    Well, it is sunny today at least.

    Been browsing the forum for a while now but only recently joined. It's a brilliant source of information for Vectra owners and has helped me get my money's worth from Vauxhall Service.

    I've owned a number of Vauxhalls over the years and have a facelift 55 reg. SRi CDTi 150 estate at the moment and absolutely love it. It's been mine from around 5 months old and has still only covered 34k miles. Having a large family/dogs etc. I can't do without something this size and it's the most enjoyable car I've had since owning a Volvo 850 T5 a number of years back. Who says you can't have an estate and not have fun!

    However, the downside is that my Vectra has got to be the most troublesome car I've ever owned - fortunately my local dealer has made an effort to keep on top of things. The main bits that I had under warranty were just as you'd expect -EGR valve, inlet manifold and swirl actuator etc, 2 wiper motors and the whole wiper mechanism. Since then, a stress-fractured windscreen, three road springs broken at the same time (Vx paid for the front ones - goodwill) and yet another EGR valve (again, Vx paid 70% in goodwill) . Very disappointing but the forum has helped convince me to keep it!

    Interestingly, I have a 37 year old classic MG that covers as many miles as the Vectra in a year and is driven much harder - never lets me down. What's happened to modern car reliability?

    My car is completely standard at the moment and I don't plan to change much. However, 150 bhp isn't really enough, so if anyone wants to part with a used DTUK eco3 or a Caterman box (ronnie63, where are you?) for a reasonable fee, I'm your man!

    Cheers,
    Matt

    Hey Matt,

    to the site buddy.

    Sounds like you have a great motor there, barring all the problems you've had.

    Indeed, the CDTI 150 can be quite troublesome at the best of times, but there are some good 'uns out there.

    Good to see the site is working for you.

    One big happy family!

    !!

    Enjoy.



    .


    Bye bye Vec B
