2004 Opel Vectra GTS 2.0 DTi diesel
Smooth, but dear to keep on the road
Alternator went; cost 240 euros.
Leak off pipe, letting air in. Had to replace; cost 30 euros.
Had to replace fuel pump; cost 700 euros.
Replaced battery; cost 135 euros.
Replaced power steering pump at a cost of 450 euros.
Sump, rocker, and head gaskets had to replaced; cost 150 euros just for gaskets.
I bought this car with only 50k miles on it for 2500 euros, and then spent 1665 euros keeping it on the road. God knows what's next to come. I will not get my money back, so I'll have to drive it until it won't drive any more...
I like the huge boot and the cabin room.
I like the layout of the dash and the seating position.
The GTS version is what I have, and they're a cracking looking car.
GM just need to sort out the engine end of things.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

With that mileage and the stated problems, it sounds like it's been clocked.

I agree, 50,000 miles seems a little too 'exact', and I would've expected these problems on a car with more than double that mileage.

50000 miles for 2500 euros only, really seems a bit suspicious. I do agree with the previous comment, that it seems as if there was tampering with the mileage.
