    My car

    absolute rubbish! avoid these diesels at all costs, from owning the car at 87k, which should be nothing to a modern diesel,ive had to replace the thermostat £64!!, the rear suspension went,the air con packed up,the car deadlocked itself resulting in a brocken rear quater light to gain access,the steering lock decided to come on WHILST DRIVING!!!!!!! the turbo gave up, you can never get a true reading when checking the oil! and to top it all off the gear lever came off in my hand whilst in third gear ,while overtaking!!scrapped it last week,just a shame i wasn't there to push the button on the crusher!!MR CLARKSON WAS RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My car

    4 years ago I bought a late-1999 2L DTI GLS. In those 4 years, I have driven over 80,000 miles (mostly motorway) very stress-free and it eats miles for fun. It is one of the best cars I have ever driven and very little has gone wrong with the car. Ride, comfort and handling are 5 star. Plus in my opinion, it looks better than the new Vectras. If the new Vectras looked like the models from late 1999-2002, I'd have no hesitation in buying another one. Why can't car manufacturers keep the looks of a good car instaed of messing with it?

    My car

    Don't let the journalists put you off, I owned a 2.6 SRi for 1 year and thought it was a hoot. very very quick, great to drive, good equipment, eats motorways and very little can live with performance.

    Only reason it had to go was its drink problem, although servicing costs were good considering the performance.

    A good 'Q' car
