Vectra Supertouring — fast car, very noisey, very firm ride with coil over springs, look fantastic, very much fun to drive, not a good car for a passenger that does not like a loud exhaust. thw white standard alloys make the car stand out

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

Pros: the look is great as i have turned it into a look a like touring car, can do a good 140 with out breaking a sweat.

Cons: the ride can be a bit firm if the roads are not to good so pretty much it dont like any road in the UK but loves the race track

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Vectra 1.8 16v "ls" — as standard, accelerations to to bad bout 12secs to 60mph i suppose, top end 120-125mph ish brakes are quite good abs as standard on all models tho doesn't like heavy braking from speeds of 60 up the rear end attempts to overtake the front (oversteers BADLY) and standard brakes are prone to fade under continuous heavy braking, would recommend NOT keeping the 185/70 14" tyres regardless of make (brand of tyre) because you get a fair amount of lift of "oversteer" lol mine dose have rattles squeaks but then it is 14years old now to be expected however limited small amount of rust only on the o/s/r wheel arch which is pretty good lol prone to electrical sensor issues annoying but simple to fix once you`ve identified which sensor lol fuel wise pretty good of you don't have a heavy right foot lol fun to be had but be mindful of its limits lol

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

Pros: cheep to run fix easy to repair for the most part

Cons: its a vectra lol

Vectra — Didn't own this through choice. Didn't like it. Even the poxy driver's window failed to shut properly. Kept conking out at roundabouts. Avoid it at all costs, or it will end up costing you even more. Was cheap to insure and run.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Vauxhall... unreliable.

Vectra Sri 2.5 V6 — its quick and quite small compared to most modern cars which makes it look a bit sportier than its younger bretheren lol. as per usual its a good design made badly but you can fix it real easy if you try its just a shame there is virtually no tunning parts available for the x25xe engine.

Pros: quick, cheap and easy to maintain.

Cons: badly made and difficult to tune.

Vectra - Family Hatch — Even though it's over ten years old, the still look bloody lovely, and modern..ish! Overall a fantastic family hatch - better than any ROVER 45! It's robust, reasonably cheap to repair - if needs be! And it goes round roundabouts lovely - (sideways!) lol Comfortable seating, comfortable driving position, fantastic factory fitted stereo system, and it kicks ARSE on ROVERS!

Pros: ITS A VAUXHALL!

Cons: NONE
