Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Vauxhall Ampera hatchback?
That futuristic body will have been thumped up and down the nation’s motorways so check it carefully for stone chips and the windscreen for chips and cracks. Check the wheels for any signs of kerb contact too. Make sure it has the full and proper Ampera annual service history.
What are the most common problems with a used Vauxhall Ampera hatchback?
Reported problems are very few, but there were some issues early in the build run with transmission solenoids, and there have also been reports of the central screen failing and rear shocks that suffer premature wear.
Is a used Vauxhall Ampera hatchback reliable?
It seems it is. Despite the complexity of its drivetrain, so far there have been few problems. From new, a 100,000-mile warranty is offered. Vauxhall as a brand finished 18th out of 32 manufacturers in our most recent reliability survey, a better than normal result for the firm.
