Not. I have just read the sticky on the "B" and yes i do have my heart set on having one, but boy has this put me off.:shame: My question is, when does the "c" start from and are they any better? Thanks.

Don't be put off by reading about "all the problems" with the Vectra.

It's no better and no worse than any other mass produced car.

As with people, there's good and bad examples.

And remember it's human nature to complain.

So, for every dis-gruntled owner, there's hundreds of happy ones.

Good luck in your choice. :Cool2:

Check the differance between the late 02 (pre-facelift) and the 04/05 (facelift) as on the later ones there was a tendance to omitt some features that were standard on the earler models. I cannot remember what but check auto dipping mirror, auto wipers, Ecotech engine not VVT. Do try to go up the model list as possible, more gadgets!!

Exactly, as theres no " I'm very happy with my vectra" section, we'll only ever hear about problems, that's what this area is for dorcav:rolleyes:
Some of us have paid much less than £500 for tidy vec b's, and had trouble free motoring.

Well just to do my bit for the 'Happy with my Vectra' section, I've just changed from a 96 3.0 V6 Omega Elite to a 54 plate 3.2 V6 Vectra GSi and I'm loving it.
Driven a couple of old Vectra B over the years and they seemed decent enough. Even compared to the Omega the Vectra C is quite a move forward.:D
