Reliable, well built performance family hatchback...

Some faults too common, it's a Vauxhall Vectra!!

The introduction of the new 2.2 16v Eco-tech engine amongst the current line up of 6 engines; ranging from 1.6 to 2.5 V6 with two diesel power plants thrown in between, gave customers a successful comprimise between the not-so-nippy 2.0l and the fuel guzzling 2.5l V6 engine. The 2.2l 4 cylinder...

“New Engine - No Difference”

published 29/03/2001

Nice sound

Poor performance, poor economy

I recently had the opportunity to try the new 2.2 engine in the Vauxhall Vectra. Having run several over the past few years with a mix of 1.8, 2.0 and 2.5 engines I was intrigued as to why Vauxhall had gone for this unusual size. After 500+ miles I really cannot see what the fuss is about. The...

Sporty feel, improvement over others in range

Minor technical faults (trim, electrical)

1998 Vectra 2.0 SRi The SRi (2.0) is a more defined car, than the "normal" range cars. This is helped by "uprated" suspension and wider track tyres. Interior features are slightly similar to the standard range, but enhanced by improved trim, based on the CDX. Performance is near to that of the...

Rear bushes prone to wear

I have not owned my Vectra a 1996 N Reg SRI 2.0 16v for very long but in the time i have had it i have been really impressed, The level of spec you get for your money is really good, and you can pick up an early example for not a lot of money, As for the spec, you get, Power Steering. Air...

Style, Reliability, Comfortable

Fuel Consumption a little bit high

What can I say, I love my SRI! I used to own an Audi A4 before I purchased my beloved Vectra and to be totally honest I would never choose another vehicle. The performance of this car is second to none, I love the onboard computer, it tells me the temperature outside, average fuel consumtion...

A fairly good family car. Isn't the comfiest car in the world but does a good job. It can carry up to 5 passengers. It has a fairly large boot to store alot of things in for those family day outs.

“Vectra SRi 140”

fast!

thirsty!

Great car, visit www.vectra-sport.com We love 'em! Given that Vauxhall are replacing the model next year prices are falling NOW, but I drive 500 miles a week, and have car regularly serviced. Michelin tyres are best for wear (expect about 20K miles when swaped rear->front). There are some niggly...

“A family car?”

published 23/07/2000

Cheap family car, budget

Lose lots of money, in no way is it flash

Me and my wife have always gone for top models and sports cars and in March 99 we had 2 good cars but felt that we were worried to take them some places because of the fear of them been stolen. So we went and looked at family cars such as the Vectra and Peuget 406 and some others after looking at...
