    Default The VEC has got to go,,,,

    NO NO NO,,Not mine, but I see a lot of threads on here and other forums, "its got to go" but in the price range WHAT would replace it? I had a good think about this, and there is not a lot (for the money) about, I nearly bought a MUNDAEO but the guy who bought it has had loads of problems with it, what other car comes close, the vec is just the right size (for me) the 1.8 I have is a good all round engine, ie, 512 Mway miles took 10.99 ltrs =46.58 mpg, stayed a 65mph most of the time, but on the other hand sat at 90mph (in Germany) as smooth as silk, and still gave 28 mpg, I like the look of a Mitsubishi Lancer 1.8 (141 bhp) the mazda6, mundao, and avensis all seem to big (limited parking space where I live) pound for pound NOTHING seems to come close the the VEC, I got my 04 vec sxi on 55,000, miles for £3,000 13 months and 15,000 miles ago, so,,, if your VEC went bang, or you have had enough of it, and you only had £5,000, WHAT would you buy? thanks for reading this, ANT.

    With only 5k it would defo be another vectra.
    If I could finance some more then it would be a different matter- 2003/2004 M3 convertible or Range Rover would do the trick.
