    Default Re-introduction

    Had Vauxhalls since 1985, most models, all maintained by me.

    I joined this forum 2-3 years ago, when I was looking for a big estate to replace my Astra. In the end I decided I also needed 4wd so bought a Subaru Outback - great drive, crap fuel consumption.

    Now - my son needs an estate to replace his high mileage Astra (urgently, due to engine failure from the false economy of not replacing the water pump EVERY cambelt change, ie 40k) so we're off to look at several Vectra-C 1.9CDTi Estates today - you can of course guess who's having to lend him the money, me!

    Now I've reached the point when I'm too old and decrepit to crawl under cars but I may need some help and advice over the coming years from the forum as I'm still going to be "managing" his car. Whatever happened to genetics - my father fettled Merlin V12s in WW2 so he wasn't surprised that, in my teens, I rebuilt the lawn mower engine to increase it's power - but can I get my son to take any interest? No, so I'll be the one on here asking for advice.

    If anyone wants to know anything about Vauxhalls built from 1985 to 2002 (except Vectras!) just ask me although the memory isn't what it was.
