2001 Vauxhall Vectra SRi 2.2 from UK and Ireland
A great family and sports car, but fairly expensive to keep
Nothing has gone wrong with the car as of yet.
There are some horrible noises coming from under the bonnet, which maybe something on its way out.
Generally I really like this car; it looks sporty, has plenty of room and performance is pretty good too.
The leather seats are a bit hard, so long journeys are touch uncomfortable.
The interior is nice to look at, but drives me mad with creaks and rattles.
The Vectra SRi is not economical at all, getting about 300 miles to a full tank, but you have to expect it for a 2.2 16v!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Its probably the camchain on its way out, common problem, get it fixed before it destroys the engine.

300 miles to a tank on a 2.2 16V? You must drive it very hard! I drive the 2.2 DTi, OK its diesel, but I average 600 miles a tank!

Comparing the economy of equivalent sized diesel and petrol engines is pointless! The diesel will always be significantly more economical.
