1998 Vauxhall Vectra CDX 2.5 V6 24v from UK and Ireland
Seriously quick car that looks the part
Front drivers side electric window stopped working.
Kept getting break light check coming up on screen.
But both problems sorted by the dealer quite cheap.
The car is seriously quick and doesn't handle too bad considering the size and weight of the car.
I have added a k&n air filter 18" venom alloys and with the leather trim the car really does look the part.
I have shocked quite a few BMW, Jag and Mercedes owners with this car love the look on there face as I overtake them.
I would recommend one of these cars to anyone I know the car does seem to get a bit of a slating, but this is my second one now and I just can't get enough.
Don't go by what people say of what you read go drive one for yourself and you'll see what I mean (top car).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Put a performance exhaust on her and she will sound f*****g great mate.
I have just bought 1 and I am over the moon, what a fantastic car, and the engine sounds superb. Does anybody out there know how the cd works, the 6 track cd is working in the glove compartment, but I've got no sound at all, the radio works, but I keep on getting CD - SAFE on the screen, help me somebody please.
The CD changer has its own safe mode and needs a four number code that would have been supplied with the manuals and stuff. If you read through the manual it will show you how to input the code.
Seriously quick? I don't want to start an endless argument, but come on it's nippy at best. Not fast, not slow, just bland. Another mild saloon. I should know I own one. Calling it seriously quick just leads everyone astray.
Come on mate lets not mess about here, you haven't shocked a BMW because it's quick. They were shocked as we all would be to see a Vectra on the road and not broken down in the layby. I got rid of my Vectra within the same month I bought it!!!
'I have shocked quite a few BMW, Jag and Mercedes owners with this car love the look on there face as I overtake them.'
Typical scenario - BMW cruising at 70mph along the motorway, your driving at 80mph. You overtake obviously, as your going quicker. 2 days later you brag to people about wasting a BMW on the motorway.
I drive about 30,000 miles a year, and don't hang about, but yet very rarely have I felt that another car was 'racing' me. Most peoples claims of beating other cars are in their imagination.
