    My car

    After recently buying this car, up to now I have had no problems at all.

    The vehicle compared to the older Vectra model drives more responsively handles well on various road surfaces.

    It's a more comfortable ride for driver and passenger than the older shaped models. The seats well designed and are more comfortable than previous models which seemed to be quite hard. There's plenty of acceleration power when you want to have a play.

    The controls seem quite simple once you get used to them.

    There's more space in the driver/passenger area, which seems to have been gained by the boot being smaller length wise but with more height

    Disadvantages: The hazard warning button is close to stereo on/off button easily depressed if not used to it, would probably be better if it was more central and away from other controls. Due to the rear of the vehicle being higher than the older Vectra not good for reversing into tight spaces, would be better if distance warning system was standard feature.
