2001 Vauxhall Vectra Club 1.6 16v from UK and Ireland
Comfortable, but bland and unreliable
Recurring intermittent fault: engine "jerks", slowing down before shooting forward again. Will sometimes stall (regardless of speed) when clutch is dipped to change gear e.g. from 4th to 3rd.
Comfortable car, but reliability not so good.
Bought through Network Q about 3 months ago. Local dealer have been helpful, taking car in 3 times, always give me a courtesy car, but seemingly unable to fix problem.
Several components replaced, but problem always returns. Had to be towed away by the AA last time!
Roomy and a good motorway cruiser, but if problem not cured soon we will have to part company!
My old Astra ran faultlessly for 4 years so am disappointed with Vauxhall quality this time around.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
