I drive a 1995 2.0 manual Vectra it & also cannot change it. It is very reliable & stable car on highways. I always maintain this car as I usually drive fast. I think it is one of the most safe & reliable family cars in its class.

Summary:

I love OPEL!! what to do for this one?

Faults:

Radiator leaks (Frequent)

Very slow acceleration (No solution)

Very High fuel consumption 8.5-9 Km/L (No solution)

General Comments:

The car is very beautiful (Deep black) and very comfortable, but I had a 1.6L Vectra 1990 before it and was noticeably faster & stronger, even this car looks like NEW and the previous owner was very light user for it!

I'm thinking of changing the motor to 2.0 L injection (?)

May any body advise what best 15" tires would be (Look & Performance)?

A 1.6i Vectra could by no means be stronger than a 2.0i. If you still have the car, clean the injectors and change the fuel and air filters. I would also advise you to use only high quality fuel. Also, it would be wise to have the engine checked.

Summary:

Great car for the money

Faults:

Small oil leak at valve cover. No big deal.

Shock-absorbers are done for-most likely because of the very bad roads I traveled on.

Currently I have some trouble with the clutch.

Right side mirror cannot be adjusted from the inside.

General Comments:

Handles like a dream. Great steering.

Runs very well, low fuel consumption.

It didn't need any major maintainance service.

No rust what so ever.

Paint still looks like new (when washed)
