    My car

    I have had this car for the last 40,000 miles, and bought it when it had done 10,000 miles. Apart from problems with a leak of power steering fluid (which was fixed under warranty), I have had no trouble.

    The Vectra feels very quick and offers excellent mid-range acceleration. It's given mixed fuel economy, but it has been acceptable. The service has been very good from Nidd Vale Motors in Harrogate.

    My only beef about the car, and the reason that I might change, it is the very hard and uncomfortable seats. Otherwise I think it makes a great second-hand buy. I had two Volvo estates before, which gave me no end of problems.

    My car

    I have owned this car from new. Everything that can go wrong, has gone wrong.

    Here are a few things I've had problems with:

    Electronic immobiliser (twice) Various sensors Electric windows Power steering Cambelt worn at less than 30,000 miles Water pump Cooling system Radiator Wheel bearings (twice) Engine idle

    This is a shame because I think the car is comfortable to drive and looks nice.

    Would I buy another one? What do you think?
