1994 Vauxhall Omega CDX 2.5 V6 from UK and Ireland
The only problem I have had is that the speedo has just started to go erratic for no obvious reason.
I am trying to rectify the fault myself, but I'm finding it very difficult to pinpoint the cause, as the Vauxhall dealership said it could be an electrical fault on anything, but didn't think it was the speedo head.
I have been told that there is a sensor on the differential, but Haynes manual very brief. Can anyone help to rectify without costing a fortune?
Any replies to e mail Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org
Apart from the speedo problem, I like the car for its exterior looks.
The inside is comfy and relaxing on short and long journeys.
The performance is ample to me and tows well, which is why I bought it in the first place.
The only thing that worries me is the cost of repairs. And how I get my speedo problem sorted out.
My overall opinion of the car is great.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have a '98 Omega CDX 2.5 V6 auto. I was also considering having the transmission fluid changed as mine has done 70,000 miles. Apparently, it's not part of Vauxhall's standard service plan. The Haynes manual recommends that the fluid be changed around now, but a lot of people advise against it unless you're having problems. I've heard that the fluid should always be changed as a precautionary measure. I've even heard that if you go beyond 50,000 miles, then you've passed the point of no return as changing the fluid could disturb particles and cause problems. If I do get it changed, I think I'll go to a Vauxhall dealer and pay by credit card so that I have some protection if things go wrong later. Has anyone else had their fluid changed? Did you notice any difference?
