Advice for buyers

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

Vauxhall has a good track record of fixing gremlins under warranty, which is comforting if you're buying a Vectra within its three-year 60,000-mile claim period. If not, check if any warranty work has been done and never buy a car without a complete service record.

There has been a recall over the possibility that the rear axle stub may not be of the proper specification on some cars - always ensure that this, and any other, recall work has been carried out. Details are available from VOSA (Vehicle & Operator Services Agency) - see
