2001 Holden Vectra CD JS2 2.6 from Australia and New Zealand
Plenty of car for your money
I bought my Vectra for my first car for a bargain price for $5500au with a low 11600kms on the Odo.
Not long after, I had a few engine problems, but the car hadn't been serviced in over 3 years, so I did expect a few things to go wrong. Surely enough they did, and I admit the costs are a bit over the top compared to a Commodore.
It's an extremely comfy sports car with plenty of extras, such as heater mirrors, fog lights, and sports mode, which makes it feel more like a V8 at times.
There are some squeaks in the front cabin, but I'm assured it's nothing mechanical.
Great 1st car; bigger and more powerful than an Astra, but not as thirsty as a Commodore. Would definitely buy another Vectra.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
