    Default Bit worried

    I sit on this site looking at the new posts all the time commenting on stuff I know about, and not offering advice on stuff I dont, im getting a bit worried about the reliability of the car ive just bought, there seems to be a never ending list of things going wrong with Vectras, I may be unjust in my concerns as this is a very big site with lots and lots of members but still seems to be a lot of problems
    does what I say seem right,
    the last 2 cars ive had/still got were a 06 plate Impreza STI and ive still got a 57 plate Fiesta ST both the sites relating to those cars (albeit obviously a lot smaller in members) never seem to write about the cars failures, are Vectras unreliable and break all the time, I thought they were solid and well reliable, what do you guys think, dont get me wrong guys im not slating the Veccy as ive just got it and really like it, so dont want to start a war, just wondering !!!

    Compare the number of Vectras on the roads with the number of Impreza STI's and Fiesta ST's and there's your answer mate...

    The thing about forums, is that a lot of people will post on them when they don't understand a potential fault on their car.

    People don't post to say "My car is great, there is nothing wrong with it", apart from gloating, what benefit would it create.?

    I seem to see a lot of people on the site who have problems with their Vectras, but touch wood, I have owned 2 Vectras in the last 6 years and only once had a problem worth mentioning (Broken front springs) Apart from that, nothing, not even a spanner light. The 2 cars mentioned were 1.8 petrols albeit with only average milage. I serviced them myself every 6 months without fail and they never let me down and that included many trips through the Scottish Highlands in sub-zero temperatures as well as your normal day-to day driving. I for one will not have the Vectra (1.8 120/140 bhp Petrol anyway)depicted as an Unreliable car.
