1990 Vauxhall Senator CDXi 3.0 24v petrol from UK and Ireland
Blower for heater - there's a fuse which is part of the motor assembly. DON'T let the dealer sell you a new motor for 170 quid when a new fuse for a fiver will sort it. Takes about 4 hours to get to it though! Ended up buying motor from breakers (MegaVaux ) for 35 inc.
Dodgy wheel hub, bodged by a dealer no doubt. Cost 90 quid not inc labour.
Cruise control a bit peculiar, sometimes doesn't work at all, sometimes goes mad, usually in rain. When working is great on motorways.
Air-con needs recharging.
Find a good independent mechanic (I use Andy Fenn, St. Ives, Cambridgeshire) whom you can trust.
Ensure you know mileage is genuine, too many around which have been clocked!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
