2004 Vauxhall Vectra SRi 2.2DTi from UK and Ireland
Nothing big has gone.
The only annoying thing is that the 'check parking light' keeps being displayed on the computer. The lights have been checked by my local dealer a few times, but they seem unable to rectify this. Not particularly bothered since I am getting rid of the car in 3 weeks.
Have had the car 8 months and covered nearly 22,000 miles. Car goes like it's new despite having 70,000 on the clock.
I drive the car hard and it takes as much abuse as you can through at it.
Very quick. Great fun on the back roads and great cruiser on the motorways. Only real downside is that it is not as comfortable on long journeys as I had expected.
Fog lights on the SRi seem to have a problem in that that they mist up from the inside. Have had a new lens on both lights, but after a while the problem re-occurs.
In summary excellent car and beats all other cars in its class hands down. I am changing cars at the end of the month and I am getting a new Vectra Design 1.9CDTi. Bought a pre-registered car brand new for £11,988 - a saving of nearly £7,000 on the list price.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
