Omega 2.5 CD Estate - John
Ive just seen a car in superb condition, apparently,and am thinking of having a trial in it. It's an October 2000 model with 88k on the clock.Is there any advice on what I should be looking for or problems that regularly crop up. I've looked at H J's car by car break down but it doesn't give me what I want. Also any ideas on realistic fuel consumption. Thanks

Have you also tried the search option at the top of the page? There's many, many threads on Omega's.

In terms of fuel consumption my 2.5 V6 manual estate manages around 22mpg on the school run; 35 mpg light footed motorway cruising.

In terms of the various Omega 'issues' then i suppose the executive syummary is as follows:-

Be very, very sure the cambelt has been changed every 40K. (water pump and tensioners too for extra peace of mind)

HT leads seem to last about 100k; budget 175 quid plus fitting for genuine vaux. parts; about half price from Autovaux.

Dodgy idle speed control valves are common on Ecotecs, although mine has been fine (touch wood)

Other than that IMHO it's a typical big, complicated modern car, and very good value second hand.
