    Default dobry den

    hello there!
    Just got meself a black 2006 vectra. My first car ever(1999 carb-equipped Zhiguli notwithstanding - I didn't drive much, anyway). I like the car all right so far, even if a little freaked out by all the buzz about timing chain problems and the like. Oh, and part prices, of course - my last batch of repairs to my Lada was 120 dollars in parts and another 200 in labor - and that included replacing the windshield, new spark plugs and cables, lube change, installing a new heater valve, changing all door locks - and rear pads to boot... oh well.

    If yours is a 2006 model and you're worried about timing chains, I'm guessing it's a 2.2 petrol. The problems only related to the earlier non-direct models and was due to a badly designed lubrication nozzle being clogged by the paper oil filters. Fixed with a modified nozzle and haven't heard on one going on a 2.2 Direct model...

    Better still if you can speak a little Russian.

    Thank you both - that part about newer models being unaffected by the infamous chain problem did sound reassuring.
    ed taylor - just out of curiosity - military background, perhaps?

    I won't insult the language and use Google to work out what you're saying Ed, although wherever I go with the RAF I try and learn a few basic phrases to get by with...

    Not been to Russia yet...

    No. I have a keen interest in Russia and the Ukraine.
