Mine Is Better Than Yours!!! — This Vauxhall Vectra has the 2.0 16 valve engine. This car cost me £1050 in November 2007. full electrics, air-con and alloy wheels are standard on my CDX model. this one is a lot better than the new 1 which all have problems with them. dont delay, find one in your local Autotrader and buy today!!

Pros: quite economical, full electrics, air-con

Cons: needs to be a bit quiker

Does The Job So Well. — A second hand bargin car at £400, my Vectra 2.0 is simply unbeatable value. Reliable, sturdy, comfortable, and get's away well from the traffic lights. So far I have had two failures with this car, both Bulbs. The indicator (rear) took less than one minute to replace.... BUT ! The bulbs behind the dashboard required a two and a half hour session, cut fingers and lots af rude words. Excellent on the Motorway, it will sit at the limit (or above) for hour after hour maintaining fair economy and a quiet ride. Thirsty around town, and visibility in the morrors is not perfect.

Owner for 2 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:10,000

Pros: Reliable, economical on long haul journeys, cheap to fix (used spares always available).

Cons: A bit front end light in heavy cornering, and limited vision in the rear view mirror. Not so economical around town.

Maintain It Properly For Worry Free Motoring. —

Bought Third hand, this ex British Telecom fleet car had been well maintained, and it showed. Maintenance is the key where the Vectra was concerned, keep on top of it, and you'll get endless trouble free motoring. Easy to drive and easy to DIY maintain. As times move on, spares get more expensive, and major parts (rear suspension) needing replacement after a long and hard life saw this poor car off to the fragmenting machine. Performance : Very good for a standard road car. Clocked at just over 120mph flat out but wallowed a bit when cornering at that speed, thankfully the brakes were good (no fade like the old Astra). Build Quality : I'd like to say excellent, but no. A good standard yes but not outstanding, but then this is a production line vehicle. Appearance : Initially I disliked the Vectra, but it grew on me. Cost of ownership : Minimal, but spares can be expensive, shop around and go second hand. Fun factor : Is a bed fun ? Are shoes fun ? Depends what you do in them. Notable bad points. (the hatch back) The long sloping rear window makes it difficult to judge reversing 'up to' things. Count the Vectras you see with dents along the top of the boot / hatch. The Radio (the Vauxhall/phillips unit) can be a swine re- code if you disconnect it, and after three attempts, it's cheaper to buy an after market radio than to get it re-coded. If you have a low speed front end impact, it smashes the cooling fan and cracks the radiators, the front is very weak. Overall... If I was looking for cheap second hand car... I would give serious consideration to a Vectra B, but I would look VERY closely at the weak points before handing over any cash.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Easy... Very easy to drive.

Cons: New parts prices.

I Love The Look, But Has Been Unreliable For Me. — Only had the car a few months and i have had a number of problems. Car seems quite fragile electronically and engine wise. I have had a few sensors pack in (common) and thermostat (car running to hot, probably damaged the sensors as heat is the main killer for them on Vauxhalls). Also idle control valve needed cleaning (again common fault). Tensioning bars in roof sometimes rattle and become unstuck. Drives lovely tho, very smooth, nice gearbox, pulls well, lovely looking.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lovely looking, smooth gearbox, pulls well, comfortable, roomy, sits firm on the road.

Cons: Seem quite fragile, few common faults - idle control valve, throttle body, sensors, coil pack. Rattling from roof can be irratating.
