What was the dealer like?
What's it like to drive?
Aprt from the problems with the EGR valve, in normal circumstances it really flies along. At 70mph in 6th gear it purrs along at 1,800 revs only. And it has a great pick up for a diesel.
What's it like to park?
It's a much bigger car than the pre-2002 Vectra, much more Omega sized. It can be tricky to park sometimes.
Living with it
Have you had any problems with the car?
Yes. The Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve stuck and the Engine Management Light came on. This left the ar with NO power and it took a country mile yo get up to 2,000 revs. This was sorted under warranty.
