Vauxhall Vectra C (2002–2008)

Last updated 25 November 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.

Owners' reviews

very reliable
Big, spacious vehicle, good round town and great on the motorway with good comfort.
A great car with attractive styling, it is a great used buy, petrol MPG is poor by today's standards
Remarkable car.
One of the best cars I've ever bought and I aim to keep it for a long time yet.
Can be a great car
