1996 Vauxhall Vectra GLS 2.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
Good solid reliable car
Rear suspension bush - supplied and fitted £130.
New battery from local store £60.
Automatic gearbox leak -£5.
Door locking mechanism £20 -fitted by myself.
Some cabin leaks -suspect windscreen as this appears to be 'glued in'.
I like this car.
It has remained in very good condition since purchased. prior to purchase it had some paint protection which has worked well and looks shiny even when dirty.
The engine manages only 30-35 mpg.
The auto gearbox is a dream.
I suffer from back pain and find there is no real comfortable position for me. The only car that I find a lot worse for this is the Mazda 6.
If the car remains in the same condition and I sell it the going price is less than £2000. It's better for me to just keep running it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
