2004 Vauxhall Zafira DTi 2.0 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Great car, let down by reliability problems
Alarm fault. Would go off at any time of the day or night.
I fixed it by removing the power sounder, de-soldering the batteries, and soldering new batteries in place.
Loss of power. The car would go into limp home mode at any time usually when driving in the outside lane of the motorway (not nice). Coped with this for nearly two years until I cleaned the EGR valve two weeks ago, and haven't had a problem since.
I like the car a great deal, it suits me very well, unfortunately there are a few issues that I believe are a manufacturing fault/poor design that have left me disappointed with the manufacturers. If the car was reliable, I would keep it for longer, but am looking to replace it with something similar, but from another manufacturer such as Toyota.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
