Vauxhall Vectra Hatchback 1.9 CDTi SRi (150ps) 5d (2008/08) - Owner Review

The boot is huge! I haven't had anything in it that could even take up half of it! and with the seats down it's ridiculously big!

August 2013

Yes, I got 4 new tyres, Wheel Bearings, M.O.T, Full Service included in the price.

I wanted a car that was big enough to fit all my friends in and still have enough power to not slow it down and it doesn't! Even with a full car it still pulls like a Train!

What was the dealer like?
Great, Was really helpful and was keen on me really testing out the car before I bought it.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Absoluely amazing, I know Jeremy Clarkson slagged the Vectra off alot but he is simply wrong, the Vectra Sri has great steering and feedback from the road, it pulls like an absolute train, People in smaller cars with bigger engines get shocked when you overtake them, its the most relaxing car I've ever owned, if you put it in 6th, you can leave it in 6th all day long and it will pull up almost any hill, overtaking is also ridiculously easy no matter what the speed, just in and out!

What's it like to park?
The Mirrors are pretty good and the visibility all round isn't bad either.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
It eats tyres, but I am quite heavy right footed so thats not really the cars problem, I've had to replace the Brakes and Shock Absorbers but other and that it's the most reliable car I've ever had!

What's most practical about your car?
The boot is huge! I haven't had anything in it that could even take up half of it! and with the seats down it's ridiculously big!

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Cruise Control, 12v sockets everywhere, Huge space, i'm 6ft6 and somebody nearly the same size fits in the back with ease. steering wheel controls, stereo is a cracker.
