1996 Vauxhall Vectra 1.6i from UK and Ireland
Good economy car
Drivers side window does not go all the way up.
Indicators and full beams come on at the same time.
Uses a lot of oil.
Central locking system not working on back passenger side door.
Not a bad car. I've only had it for a week though, so I'm still getting to grips with it.
There are a couple of faults that I need to sort out when I get a chance, like the indicators and the full beam switch.
One funny thing I have noticed is that a lot of people are complaining about their hand brake on the Vectra model coming off on its own. When I got my Vectra last week, I had a look through all the paper work for it, and found a letter of recall from Vauxhall basically saying there has been a problem found on the hand brake system, and to take the car to the nearest Vauxhall dealer and they will book it in and get it sorted. This must have been done by one of the older owners of the car, as all seems fine at the moment. But if any of you would like a copy of the letter, then please contact me and I will scan and send it to you via email.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
