Engine —

my 1996 Vectra was the powerful engine sold in the Vectra range, a 2.5i V6 liter engine developing 170horsepower united to 4 speed automatic transmission with "sport" mode. so, the car was well built, the exterior design was so pretty and the interior was quite good. never went broken, after a long time using (14 years) the transmission died, it wasn't serious but we sold it 'cause in my country to fix a German car cost a huge amount of money. The engine was very powerful, even the car was quite heavy, and very low gasoline consumption, in the ECO mode the car shifts up at 2200rpm, if you select the Sport mode the car shifts up at 5500rpm making it fly, specially for long trips, as the engine is big, at 120kmh (the legal limit here) the car was at 2000rpm making a stupidly low consumption. the transmission was very soft, a little bit slow shifting, but you can not notice when the car shift the speeds The interior was really well done, premium materials, a cool CD radio and seat with heater, also it has control cruise and board computer with a big LED display, the sunroof let the sun come into the car constructing a nice area, if is it to shiny, just was necessary to close the cover. the seats were very comfortable with a lot adjustments, some people may find them a little bit small, not for me. and something very important, everything that you touch is soft, giving you this "premium" feeling. the cost of maintenance was AWFUL haha, yes that was bad, 'cause (at least in my country) to maintain a German car is very expensive, also some parts they had to bring them directly form Germany, and that increase the total cost of any reparation or maintenance is it Fun??? yes, but not a super sports car, just a nice family car with a great V6 engine

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: well control, comfort, quality interior, German style

Cons: ABS Traction control 4 airbags but not so brilliant in EURO N CAP tests, and maintenance

Opel Vectra20 Power!!! — A really nice car. Although it's one of the heaviest in it's category, it has a great acceleration among with high speed. Excellent stability in the road, and lots of spaces inside. Heavy weight can also be consedered as a disadvtge since the car could have greater acceleration with less weight.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Extremely stable on the road, Good acceleration and top speed, Big inside spaces, economic

Cons: extreamely heavy-reduces acceleration

Opel Vectra B 2.0 16v — old as hell and not a VAG. Well in denmark with our insane taxes on everything you actually get quit alot of car for the money but nevertheless, its still and old car. Its quite a smoothe ride when you pendle. The interior is nothing to brag about, and neither is the performance. The paint is starting to show that its a 12 year old car but of course i try to keep it decent at least.

Pros: Decent pendler car

Cons: old and slow.
