I drove an R reg Vectra GLS for 3 years. Not a bad car but it left a little to be desired. The main problem was with the suspension: the car would "wallow" it's way around roundabouts. In the first week I was forever pulling into petrol stations as I kept thinking I had a puncture! Many people also complained of backache from the uncomfortable seats, though personally, I only suffered from this once, on a very long journey. I now have an X reg GLS and, from the advertising, it boasts over 2000 improvements! How bad does a car have to be to require 2000 improvements?! The new car is, however, an improvement on the last one. The engine is quiet and ... Read the complete review

I think that my Vauxhall Vectra is the best car that I have ever had! I originally got it as a company car but I liked it so much that I got my own. It has great handling and I love the interior. I have found that there is one problem with it and that is that in the back, when one of the back windows are open, the air rushes past the top of the seatbelt and the sound really gets on your nerves but my vectra has air conditioning so no one really opens the back windows. There is one other problem though. I have found that after several months of using the car, the windscreen cracks. Its nothing major and the windscreen doesn't fall in on you but the crack starts off ... Read the complete review

I currently drive a 96P reg Vauxhall Vectra 1.8GLS with 72,500 miles on the clock. I have owned the car for almost a year now and have put around 9,000 miles on it in that time, most of them trouble free but also with some minor annoyances. Economy wise the car is very good on motorways and long journeys, often returning around 40-45mpg but around town it is quite simply awful and I sometimes struggle to average 30mpg. The car's performance is also quite good, considering its age, but it does sometimes really labour when I depress the accelerator but only when it is very cold outside. I think this is to do with the automatic choke on this model. ... Read the complete review

I've had my 2003 Vauxhall Vectra since 2008 and I can honestly say it's the best car I have ever had. In 4 years I have clocked up 60,000 miles in this car. I spent a whole year commuting between Plymouth and Exeter and not once did it let me down. It runs beautifully on the motorway and if I'm cruising at around 55mph I get about 45 miles to the gallon. It has to be one of the most reliable cars I've ever had, I've just been on a 1000 mile round trip to Edinburgh and back with no problems at all. The only couple of criticisms I would make would be that it doesn't perform that great going uphill which is a bit of a disadvantage living in Devon! Also ... Read the complete review
