1999 Vauxhall Vectra CDX V6 2.5 V6 from UK and Ireland
Keep clear of this lemon...
Many minor electrical faults.
Missing digits on the information display.
Misfiring on one or two cylinders.
Fault warnings when no fault was present.
Lots of bulbs keep blowing.
High depreciation is justified due to the poor build quality. Low second hand prices make the Vectra looks like a good value for money, but don't be fooled. This car is a lemon - avoid.
Handling is better than it used to be on the pre-1999 Vectra. Drive is acceptable, space is good, comfort is good, performance is good if a little bit noisy for a V6.
Take a look at the Mazda Xedos, which has a wonderful engine, perfect build quality and will hold its value much better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
