Avoid Like The Plague — Genuinely awfull car, from new went through wheel bearings every 12 months, broke a power steering pump, needed a new steering rack and then after 60K miles used a litre of Oil every thousand miles, Blew a heater matrix and finally died after someone stole it from my house to use in a bank raid, one of the very few cars I was glad to see the back of.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Estate / Station Wagon, Loads of room inside

Cons: Everything mechanical

The Sturdy Workhorse, Vauxhall Vectra — I got this car from my Dad about two years ago and it has never let me down yet. The vectra is a sturdy car although since it is 9 years old now it is in need of some tlc. All the parts on the car are all the original from new, therefore the exhaust is needing replaced and also the battery is past it's best.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Sturdy workhorse

Cons: Nothing, actually

V6 2.6 Vectra — 2.6 V6 2001 vectra in the best colour (I reckon) Grey. Superb performance, handling and comfort. Fuel goes as quick as the car! Leather interior is in good condition. External bodywork a little neglected (previous owner) but give it time... The roar of the V6 sounds better the higher the rev's. (I prefer the engine roar to the radio!)

Pros: This might be the best car I ever owned!

Cons: None that I can think of.

2001 Vauxhall Vectra 1.8ls Hatchback — Clean car ( NO smoking in my car thank you!!) despite having 2 children in it every day. I take pride in keeping it clean ( although I let Mike do the cleaning!!) and it looks clean. Had a 2000 peugeot 206 before this, and I feel a lot safer in the Vectra, and it goes really well too! Nice big boot for all my shopping and pushchair etc. Reliable car! Only problem i had was a lot of play in the steering, which, when Mike checked it for me, was due to the steering rack being loose!! All sorted now thanks to my clever husband( useful for some things!!)

Pros: solid, reliable

Cons: common!

Family Size Car Thats Fun To Drive — Accelaration brilliant braking unbeatable and handles out of this world. it looks great from the outside and inside the wood effect is cool. downside is fuel efficientcy it drinks a lot of fuel. great fun to drive i would spend my life just driving around in it.

Pros: accelaration braking and handling top class

Cons: too juicy
