1996 Holden Vectra CDX 2.4 from Australia and New Zealand
Driver's door seal broke.
Driver's door does not close properly.
Major leak inside car on front passenger side. Returned car to dealer to fix the leak. The dealer advised that simple problem and remedied. Now water is literally pouring onto floor whenever air conditioning unit is in operation. Also heater does not work and window is constantly fogged. Have to take the car in for repair, but warranty has expired.
Motor hesitates whenever it is put under heavy acceleration.
Problems with electrics. Dashboard lights keep blowing and some digits on electrical display unit to not light up.
The interior and exterior look nice and the car has a powerful engine. However, the little problems are a constant niggle and the repair bill keeps going up.
I am currently trying to sell to some other poor soul.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

For what, can I see here, it's the fact, you bought a pretty bad shape secondhand car.
By the way, there isn't 1996 Vectra CDX and much lees equipped with a 2.4 engine.

Totally Agree with the author of the second comment.
Without a doubt, this reviewer bought a pretty bad shape secondhand car.
By the way, there isn't Vectra 2.4.
I just purchased my 1997 Vectra GL 2.0 16V Manual, four months ago and the car have been faultless, so far.

I recently purchased a 97 CDX v6. It's a fabulous driving experience - superb German engineering that is really underrated... I think that the author of the first comment just happened upon the production line *lemon* :)
