    As far as i'm aware they are not the best on mpg as its the heaviest of the signum range with the big Isuzu v6 lump. But I think they are pretty reliable and have a great amount of torque so drive well too. Go for it mate, I'm sure you'll love it.

    Hello

    I have a 3.0 Vec and my onboard Comp says at the mo

    Av MPG - 38.6
    Av Spd - 21mph !!
    Trip Distance - 751 miles

    so nearly 39 mpg at that low speed is by my reckoning pretty good.

    thats quite a high quote for a cam belt on one of these as the book says 1.2 hours to complete and the kit is only about £150

    and the belt doesnt need to be changed for 10years/100k miles

    Just had my cambelt changed @ 95k and paid £340 from a main dealer.

    Had a Elite 3.0CDTi Auto for 4 years now. Great car , kids love it so much space in the back it's like a limo. Pulls like a train from any speed.
    The look of wonder on the beemer morons when I put my foot down as they try to come flying down the fast lane behind always cheers me up.

    Steering feel is very poor though, not a drivers car @ all. Defo a motorway cruiser.

    Apart from usual wear and tear tyres/brakes/front suspension springs nothing mechanical has gone wrong apart from the alternator pulley falling off

    Expensive engine to repair if things do go wrong, number of threads on the forum about various issues people have had , but overal seems to be a v. reliable lump.

    Auto gives me around 32mpg.

    £5-600 is very high, you won't pay anywhere near that.
