    Default Vectra SRI Turbo Owners?

    Hi,

    I collected my Vectra yesterday and so far so good (apart from the alternator belt going this evening!).

    My car hasn't had any service history with it but checked out ok via HPI and i've checked the old MOT's using the VOSA website.

    Does anyone know any history or seen about a Black Vectra SRI Turbo,
    ???? ZSJ in the Manchester / Cheshire area?

    Tried Vauxhall but no luck, they said they don't hold a central database or anything.

    Just wondered whether it's been anyone's in the past etc.

    Also anything i should watch out for or look? It's done just short of 58'000 now, (It's going for the timing belt and having a service next week).

    Thanks.

    I thought VX had a history of warranty work carried out on the car, could be wrong though.

    Main things it needs are regular oil changes with 5w-30 fully synthetic(VX is fine) to make sure the cam chain is given good life. Make sure when it's serviced they use this oil and the auxiliary belt can become squeaky because of the alternator pulley, but a new belt gets rid of the noise for a while.

    Great engine that iwll last forever with good care

    I've got a squeaky alternator pulley and the typical tensioner rattle which should be sorted soon.

    mark - how many miles would you say between oil changes?

    Some do it at 5,000miles, but I'd say at minimum 10,000miles and you'll be fine Matt.

    The Sri Turbo is a great car, I love mine. My Alt belt is a little squeaky, but it goes away once warmed up.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default

    The 2.0T engine is an absolute gem. Not the quickest or the fastest in the range but oh so reliable and tunable to boot. The result of a successful collaboration where Saab 'turboised' an already tried and tested VX engine.
