It's Pretty Much A Sports Car In Disguise — "53-plate" Vauxhalll Vectra 2.2 SRi: It did 200,000miles in its first year with trips to London and back (from Scarborough) every week and site-to-site trips and but encountered a problem being the drive belt snapping whilst reversing from a relative's drive way in Scotland and an exhaust cover which dragged. Very fast for a fairly standard looking family saloon. The Vectra had sport alloys and low profile tyres. The onboard computer was very advanced for that time period. Boot space was a bonus.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun, fast and extremely reliable.

Cons: None

Its A Vauxhall... — Its a Vauxhall, nothing special... Not cheap to run 18mpg around town, not the fastest car but it is very comfortable. Not the best looking car but the interior is great due to the ELITE Trim. IT WILL BREAK DOWN!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: INTERIOR

Cons: BUILD QUALITY

Vectra Overview — For a heavy car it doesn't half shift!The electrics are a pain in the a** though! Easy car to mod aswel but don't mod the engine if you can't afford the fuel bill!! Definitely a car that likes motorways, and it'll give you your fun once you get on the M1

Pros: Acceleration, speed, handling

Cons: Electrics, fuel consumption, tyre wear

Vauxall Vectr C 1.8 Sxi — performance wise i wish i'd got the 2.2sri version as the body is heavy and the 1.8 redtop does struggle at times.to the point where i had to replace the engine on 100,000 miles,not good. interior is excellent,very spacious and comftable for those long motorway journeys with the added bonus of cruise control.lots of little cubby holes for those car chargers,cd's etc.1 pointless 1 though above the interior light which has this annoying vibrating sound from time to time,really frustrating. stock stereo and speakers not bad at all,even though i've replaced head unit for a nice jvc dvd player which gives clarity and surprisingly bass 2. exterior i find is quite sleek and overall eye catching,however there are to many on the road these days and without a bit of that personal touch they really don't stand out in the crowd anymore. overall money well spent,but sadly i think it's an audi a4 next and must be a diesel to increase in fuel costs.even though its not bad on fuel when it does struggle up hills or u put ur foot down the gauge goes down just as fast. maintenance is also expensive due to the access to some of the engine parts,must be taken to garage which is never cheap,but i guess this is the same with any modern day motor. overall i would recomend but get the bigger 2.2sri or 2.2tdi

Pros: spacious and sylish interior

Cons: lack of power in 1.8sxi

Vectra C 1800sxi 16v — i think for only an 1800, this car accelerates quite well for it's size. the build quality is very good for a car of it's stature a great improvement from vauxhall!! as you can see it is a big car and mine has been slightly modded, yet to be completed. with the price of petrol at the moment the worst part of the cost is fuel. my car is really fun to drive, i like the way i can blow the blue oval away!!

Pros: pulls through gears smoothly

Cons: none

Umm Ok, But Nothing To Shout About. — Underpowered, Handles reasonably (bit sporty) drinks more fuel that the V6 and provides less that half the power, its so bad that a few things in the boot is really noticed and with the Air con on, you dont want to be thinking about any quick getaways Fairly big car, and there is enought room, they would have been better off making the massive boot a bit smaller to give more leg room in the back two lankies dosent give that much space. but you can fit.

Pros: Large car, Looks nice,  massive boot, comfort.

Cons: under powered, First two gears are poor, could have a little more rear leg room, High fuel consumption
