Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Vauxhall Vectra estate?

The Vectras has earned a reasonable reputation for reliability, although according to the What Car? Reliability index, they have slipped in recent years and, overall, Vauxhall rates below average.

The 2.2 diesel needs regular oil checks/top-ups, otherwise it could run dry and seize. The injector system on that engine is vulnerable to leaks and symptoms include poor starting.
