    Hi,

    Im looking at getting a 2003/2004 Vectra C but cant decide between the

    2.2 DTI SRI(125hp)

    and the

    Vehicle : Golf 7

    Trim : GTD

    Engine : 2.0 TDI 184PS

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 40000

    Default

    The CDTI is the more powerful modern deisel in the vectra, but the DTI although quoted at 123hp is probably nearer the 140BHp.

    Being a CDTI owner I would say watch out for Manifold Issues, EGR issues and Injector loom problems with the latter although they give great performance if you source one that is free from those defects.

    From when I was looking at getting one, all the reviews said try to go for the CDTI engine, unless money is tight, then go for the DTI

    It all depends on the budget...
    There's nothing wrong with the dti's i have had:
    Astra estate dti
    Zaffy dti
    Vec b 2.2 dti
    Vec C 2.0 dti
    Although people say the fuel pumps are fragile, i have had no bother

    I'm currently driving a 1.9 cdti & it's in a different league altogether, quieter, quicker & more economical.
