2006 Vauxhall Vectra SRi 150 cdti from UK and Ireland
ALL fine... Read below though!
Love this car, had one before, many comments on this site mirror my own... but this car has a problem which is driving me mad & I hope someone out there could advise..
At speeds of between 75-90 mph, there is a slight vibration felt through the steering wheel, nothing major now, but enough to distract from the driving pleasure.. my previous SRI did not have this!
All the obvious attempts to rectify have been addressed, All FOUR wheels have been off, tyres checked for obvious fault, tracking, balancing, front swapped for rears etc etc.. numerous times.. but with no cure!
I have taken the car to various dealerships, as only 3 months old, each time the answer is.. " nothing wrong".. but there is!!.. I feel embarrassed to keep pursuing
The car has not been kerbed, thumped from the underside or anything like that.. but the steering "juddering" is there, but only when I drive it!!
I am used to the Vectra "C", I have owned many, & I appreciate and except the SRI has lowered suspension and a firmer ride, but none have exhibited this vibration... and I ain't making it UP!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Try www.vectra-c.com. They're very knowledgeable.
150 CDTI 16V very quick, plenty of torque, excellent MPg and effortless driving, but the non existent suspension and over hard ride does not make up for the excellent handling capabilities.. the balance is not quite right, and makes this car a pain to live with on a day to day basis! Interior quality, space, build, audio and navigation all first rate though!
