Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Vauxhall Zafira MPV?

First, inspect the car's service history to make sure that the cambelts have been replaced when they should have been. This doesn't apply to the chain-driven 2.2-litre petrol engines, or the 2.0-litre diesel.

Also, check that the spare wheel is still strapped underneath the car where it should be. It's there to free up space for the clever rear seats, but is all too easily stolen.
