    Default Looking at possible purchase advice needed

    Hi
    I am possibly looking at changing my old Mondeo to a Vectra. I have seen one a 1.9 (150) CDTI exclusive on a 56 plate 24000 miles @ £7495. Is this a reasonable price for this car? also I know nothing about Vectra models is the Exclusive top middle or bottom of range? Are there reliability issues common faults with this type of Vectra.

    Sorry so many questions but doing my homework before parting with money any advice appreciated

    i agree with lump thats a expensive car low mileage i agree but still. and at that mileage none of the cdti problems will have raised there heads yet!!!

    If you want to change your old Mondeo to a Vectra, that's quite a hard task. You'll need to buy a bonnet, wings, bumpers, doors, tail gate, and then cut and shut them quite a bit to get them to fit on the Mondeo bodyshell. Even then, it'll look like quite a bodge. You're better off just selling the Mondeo or trading it in, and buying a Vectra, rather than modding your old car into something it was never supposed to be.

    very good should maybe be a transformer car!! just found out it is not in fact a 150 but a 120 but I am assuming same sort of issues? maybe just stick with the Fordies then

    thanks for all the advice re pricing it is from a garage is an exclusive a middle range ??

    Exclusive is a special edition with bits and bobs from other models not sure exactly what though, but its mid range. Bottom is LS - top is elite, gsi/vxr.
