Vauxhall Vectra C (2002 - 2008)

Last updated 14 September 2015

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.

Vectra 3.0V6 CTDI suffering from low turbo boost pressure. Could be blocked EGR as above. Could be partially blocked turbo bearing oil feed or oil return pipes. Could be injectors.

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