    Default 72,000 miles on a 56 plate?

    Been looking for a new car and seen this one at car giant: http://www.cargiant.co.uk/Vauxhall/V...all-Vectra.asp

    Last service was at 60k

    Fell in love with it after test drive, tho it has 20k more miles that my 52 plate astra which they have offered a good part ex rate for.

    Should I be put off by the mileage? What sort of life are theses engines suited for? I would plan on keeping this car for 4-5 years and do no more than 10k per year tops as I have a company van for work.

    Thoughts? Any problems I could have?

    Ta!!!!!!!

    Looks like a nice car mate, I wouldn't worry about the mileage on that engine but what wear and tear has it had on other bits? i,e, what shape are the breaks, suspension etc in? I do think it's a bit expensive but maybe other people will think differently.

    Keith: Brakes seem fine and fresh in good shape, only marks on bodywork was stone chips on front bumper and a little mark on one of the bumpstrips but apart from that mint, so shouldnt worry about the miles?

    Rob: Ta for the link looks tidy but im after a certain spec/colour etc! Fussy I know! And this one ticked every single box.
