Value For Money Performance — a lot of car for little money only faults had been wear and tear items clarkson got it wrong back in the day this was far more superior to the mondeo equivilent love the styling angular yet smooth at the same time

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: the sound of the smooth v6 combined with a cone filter and quality exhaust mmmmmmmmm

Cons: fuel prices being what they are its not the most economical car out there

It;s Not My First Choice Of Car But It Does What I Need It To Do! — performence is poor acceleration is slow what else do you expect from a low pressure turbo diseal. brakes stop eventualy handling feels like a boat. it's needed exstensive repairs list too long. apperance is dirty n rusty. it cost me £150 to buy about £350 in parts alone. getting around 45 mpg in town and 60+mpg on a long run it has 2003026 miles on the clock so the engine is bomb proof ashame about the body. it's not fun it's practical but really good on a long run.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: took it too inverness and back too newcastle with no problems

Cons: it's old body has seen better day's

Electrics - Terrible — Other than the dreaded Vauxhall electrical system it was nice. A 1.8 GLS estate in metallic red.

Classic Btcc Car — Gorgeous looking Vectra Supertouring, the best they made unless you can get your hands on an ST 200.

Pros: White alloys, leather interior, fantastic bodykit

Cons: Fuel economy, lol.
