Great motorway cruiser, but poor economy and hard work around town
Concerned about functionality of the air conditioning (keeps steaming up the windows), but too cold in England at the moment to test this properly.
Otherwise very reliable (unlike previous 3 year old 1.6 Vectra).
Feels like driving a train - always feels like its got power in reserve, but doesn't feel as quick as you would expect from a standstill (tall gearing?).
Handling OK, better than non-SRi Vectras, but hardly sporty.
Great stereo, but the air conditioning in Vectras seems unreliable.
Gearchange, steering and fuel economy poor, but trip computer and bootspace a bonus. Mine is a manual, but automatic Vectras I have driven seem very good.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
