Vauxhall Vectra C (2002 - 2008)

Last updated 1 March 2017

Far better than previous Vectra. Now with decent handling and an excellent ride. Plenty of safety kit. Roomy in the front. Big boot. Good looks.
Not as sharp to drive as a Mondeo. Limited rear legroom. The 2.2DI can be heavy on the oil. Reports of parking brake failures.

A great car with attractive styling, it is a great used buy, petrol MPG is poor by today's standards
