Excellent and reliable runner
I always wanted to buy a Zafira, as they are what I needed, as I have 4 kids.
The day I bought the car, I was on the motorway doing 70 mph, and yes the EMS light came on and the computer switched to limp home mode. After pulling over and switching off, then restarting, it was fine for a couple of weeks, then did it again on the motorway. Vauxhall didn't listen to me when I explained what was happening, and did diagnostics without asking and then tried to charge me 45 quid, which I didn't pay for as I didn't ask for this. Then they tried to charge me 600 quid to have the car in and change the turbo. (I'm a mechanic myself so knew the turbo wasn't faulty). After heated words at the garage, I got a new EGR valve and fitted it, thus eliminating the problem.
Since fitting the new valve, I've had no problems with the car. Excellent runner and bloody quick off the mark after installing a Superchip and getting the turbo serviced.
Never take your car to Vauxhall, always go to a small garage as Vauxhall manipulate you into paying rip off prices.
Interior isn't much to speak about, but is comfy for long drives.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
