    Default 2.0 T or 2.2 DTI ???

    Hi everyone...iam in the market for a new vectra C pre face lift. I have between £3500-£4000, but not sure whether to go for the 2.0 T SRI or the 2.2 DTI SRI

    What are the pros and cons with each? and what should i look out for when buying? any common faults with these two cars?

    Insurance is roughly the same on both cars for me

    Anyone know the 0-60 on these two cars?

    What are they both doing to the gallon/MPG?

    What can they both reach top end?

    Ive had a look on parkers but the info on there isnt always correct and want to hear it from accutle owners

    Just cant make my mind up lol info would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks alot...Dom

    Depends on what you're after. The 2.0T is fairly reliable and quick. The diesel isn't all that bad either. Mine topped at 130

    take in mind you will not be able to chip 2.2 DTI and 2.0T is ok
    2.2 DTI would be cheaper to drive i mean the diesel consumption etc, but diesel engines are more expensive to repair.
    Decide what you want and what you need

    Thank you Dom.
    I have tried the 2.0t in a Saab, and I have a Vectra with 2.2DTi.
    There is both pros and cons.

    The petrol is a quicky, and pretty fun to drive. Expect rather low mpg if you drive "inspired", good mpg if careful driving. Quite reliable, no big faults AFAIK.
    The diesel is not a quicky, but it is more like a locomotive It's really powerful, you don't have to gear down to make it to the top of the hill! Nice mpg, even with some inspired driving. No cambelt that has to be changed Reliable, especially if you follow some tip on this site (clean EGR++, check for splits in some tubes, add 2-stroke oil in diesel from time to time).

    So, in reservation I have not tried the 2.0t in the Vectra, it's a choice wether you want a quicky or a strong one.

    Both have turbo's and is a bit sensitive for oilquality. If previous owner have "forgot" to change oil, then forget the car, and get one who is well maintained.

    Best of luck
