I read the what car rating and equipment on the vehicle. The equipment I have on the 2.0 CD has electric windows all round and air conditioning. What car says that these are not available on this model. The car itseld is pretty good on fuel and comfrot is very good. I would certainly buy another Vauxhall Omega in the future.
Doing circa 45,000 miles per annum I have owned numerous cars, my previous car was a Subaru legacy (Expensive to buy and run, but fun) the Omega was a purchase of the brain! It took time to grow on me but now having done 130,000 miles in 3 years, it’s been a great car. The problem I have now is choosing another car for the same spec and price. (Any suggestions) Returning 33mpg to 40mpg, great ride easy cruising once she’s up and running even when fully loaded. Although not sure if the dealers have changed “quality” of pads and discs but the wear rates have increased, I am not a heavy breaker and do a high number of motorway miles but now appear to require new P&Ds every 20km ?
The Elite is a fully loaded executive car, but with the old mans image and initial high depreciation (great if your are buying second hand) I would consider another one, the only thing that lets the Vauxhall down as per numerous previous experience is the dealers attitude.
A fantastic car to own and drive! had a vectra diesel before and it was complete piece of sh£%! compared to this,cant believe these two cars are made by the same company! The omega has it all,better fuel consumption (something to do with the bmw lump i think) much more comfortable, better built,quieter,much better looking,and it handles a lot better,which shocked me as its a larger rear wheel drive car, looked at its bmw 5 series alternative and it was dearer to run,insure ect. and as build quality goes,i feel there is absolutly no diference,in fact the vauxhall felt even better built! I most definatly recommend the omega 2.5 diesel in terms of value for money,build quality,refinement,and running costs.
Bought the car in September 2005, Aiming to sell now, Always wanted one, Cost me £700.00 for MOT this year on fail points, Very thirsty and wish I hadnt seen it, Had a cavalier before & would have it back NOW. If you want no money get an Omega. Auto gearbox warning comes up occasionally dont know why, This car will keep you poor.
Order a brochure, find your nearest dealer or book a test drive
owned for 3 years Pro engine, performance, size, looks Cons Service cost (BMW in general), folding rear seats is an option - annoying, no spare…
Even after 8 months I still look forward to driving this car. The handling is superb, the 8 speed gearbox a dream. There is a bit of lag when you…
