Other Vauxhall Vectra (1995 - 2002) models:

  • Summary

    2 out of 5 2.0

    What does this car say about you?

    That you are boring and have gotten old before your time...

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    thought it was alright, very fuel efficient

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    No, wouldn't touch another vectra for as long as live. No doubt people will swear by theirs but I wasn't impressed. Especially the engine light problem. Supposedly common fault for the CDTi engine from 99 regs all the way up to 04 regs. Which tells you a lot about vauxhall design.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Anything thats not a vauxhall.
