Hi all thinking of selling my 2000 Veccy x reg exceptionally good condition 65000 fsh 1.8ls photos and docs to prove. I have had a look in the trader I think the price should be around 2600/2700. Am I on the right lines or miles away I need a smaller car so would like a quick sale.

According to Parker's car prices....
A 1.8Ls with 50K in good cond private sale - £2830
So you're pretty much on the right lines

My dad looked at trading his in on a slightly used Signum on finance, they told him they'd give him £1900 for it. He took the alloys off and put it in the Autotrader for £2,500 and got no bites for it. In the end he decided to keep it, it's a 99 T, 1.8LS, silver, had about 64k when he went for a trade in. Decided to keep the Veccy in the end because of the low resale, he paid £4100 for it in April 04.

Dealers will always offer you less than the true value coz of course they want to make a profit, it's always best, I have found, to try to sell privately, but then it depends if anyone out there wants what you are selling!
Another way around things, JTK, is to maybe look out for a straight swap?

Thanks for the help the problem is I Have bought a smaller car so trade is not possible. The price of £2830 is great but I will try about £2500 for quick sale as service is due. Not giving up on Vauxhall just yet just need a break from the prices.

My 98 (S) V6 cost me 1250 with 63k on clock :)

Remarkably little wrong with it, but no service history so spent 540 on a full service, new cambelts, sparks, front brakes and rewelding the front of the exhaust (slight blow from front).

MOT isn't till October so I reckon I didn't do too badly considering some of the stories on here (missing fault bulbs, disconnected switches etc).

Fuel economy is a lot better than expected as well, trip to work is averaging around 35 mpg.

The pre 97 vectras do have a very bad rep. So long as there's no more work needed to get the car through it's next mot you've got a pretty good bargain there. Do you know when the last service was and if so if the cam belt was changed? There's a good possibility the cam belt will need doing and if it's not been done since the 40k service you should get it done asap without fail.
