1998 Vauxhall Omega CDX 2.5 V6 from UK and Ireland
This is a damn good exec class car- go get one!
The cruise control isn't working - the stalk controls are just dead and do nothing - if anyone has any suggestions they would be appreciated.
Just bought this Omega after my 2.5 manual Vectra was stolen 3 weeks ago. Being an auto and a bit heavier, the Omega is a bit slower off the mark, but it more than makes up for that in comfort and roominess.
Also under the bonnet there is actually room to get spanners in and do stuff without having taking the car to bits! (Try changing an EGR pipe on a V6 Vectra or an alternator!)
The car handles well, the power steering gives plenty of feel as you wind up the speed. Noise levels are fine and there is plenty of room inside for 4/5 occupants. I'm 6'2" and passengers behind me have more than enough leg room.
All in all this is one hell of a motor for very little outlay and its not too juicy either, doing 30-35 mpg on a motorway run at 70-90 ish mph.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
