Overall reliability

The honeymoon was soon over......horrible reliability issues from the 1.9cdti engine

I have owned my Zafira 1.9cdti 150bhp from new, since Oct 2006. The honeymoon soon ended after just a few months. In the first two years the EGR valve and alternator had to be replaced. Recently the starter motor and now something serious is wrong with the DMF flywheel judging by the vibes from the steering wheel. The car was in the Opel garage for 3 days and they couldn’t diagnose the problem. The car has only done 89k miles with full Opel Garage servicing. Managed to find a very helpful independent garage who confirmed that the DMF was shot! Going to cost me nearly £2k to get it fixed up here in Sweden! I’m very unhappy with the overall build quality and I would warn anyone to stay away from diesel engine, especially 150bhp models. The paintwork is bubbling under driver’s sill now too! Shame, because it drives and behaves lovely (when working) for a 7 seater Soccer Mom Bus. Please stay away from 150bhp diesel engines, they will break your heart and your wallet.
