1998 Vauxhall Vectra Arctic II 1.8 petrol from UK and Ireland
A smooth car, but so fickle
Sticking throttle pedal. New throttle body at 330 pounds.
Front pads; 60 pounds.
Cigar lighter blown.
All at 22000 miles.
Erratic idling at 28000 miles, pounds?
Blown instruments lamp on right side.
Grating sound from front discs, although not mentioned by me or dealer at service.
I have to say up to the present, my dealer has sorted all faults; the throttle body was replaced under warranty.
But I am worried, as this new idling fault, which developed last month, seems very common, but unsolvable.
Still I have a few weeks on my warranty left.
I love the ride of this car, although it seems sluggish with four people compared to my old 2 litre automatic Cavalier.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
