    Default Bye Bye Vectra

    My 3.2 V6 Vectra Elite goes to a new home tomorrow but not all bad news i liked the car so much i would like a newer less thirsty one lol

    stick to the 150cdti vectra . a mate has a 2.2 tdci mondeo and cant get away from the vec and the vectra is a better made car . when i came back to this company i had a choice a vectra sri or a 2.2 mondeo zetec . so glad i gave the vectra a second chance , loving the old shed !

    Hi mate, I'm well qualified in this discussion!!

    Earlier this year I owned a 2006 Mondeo Zetec TDCi 130 and fitted a tuning box - it flew and handled really well. Plus I considered it better built than the 52 plate Vectra C Elegance DTi I owned a couple of years ago.

    I then decided (whoops) to swap the Mondeo for a 55 plate Vectra C 3.0 V6 CDTI SRi. This was the car that nearly ruined my Vauxhall love affair. It didn't handle, had loads of niggly fault and was not very well built. I got rid within 3 months.

    Just this week I have purchased a 1.9 CDTI SRi Estate on a 55 plate again and what a difference, it is great. The V6 was obviously a poor example and even though the car had 30k less miles on it than my new estate, it felt dire to drive.

    The V6 is a beautiful engine though - smooth, powerful and pretty cheap to run too - it was just fitted to the wrong car.

    The 1.9 had a bit of go at various points in the rev range, but elsewhere is is properly flat. It will need a re-map soon - it is definately not fast - the Mondeo was quicker.

    Get a low mileage V6 CDTI and you will be really happy, just don't expect it to handle really well as standard.

    Overall, even considering the way the 1.9 handles, the Mondeo would run rings around it both from a handling and performancer view and probably better built too.

    Having said that, I'm on my third Vec C and absolutely love them to bits!!

    Chris
