Bought this vehicle new in September 2012 and sold it after 10 months.
Fuel consumption is pathetic for a modern diesel
DPF regenerations occurred every 500 miles during which engine ran rough and impossible to get a smooth gear change from 1st to 2nd gear. Spoke to VX on numerous occasions and they just passed this off as being normal.
Started having problems whilst moving off from rest, this started with around 3,000 miles on the clock. Strange noises coming from gearbox area which to me was quite clearly the clutch release bearing, but local dealer could not make up their mind what it was. Vehicle sold at 10,000 miles with this matter STILL NOT RESOLVED.
Poor plasticky rattling interior.
No boot space
Nervous twitchy bouncy suspension at speed on uneven country roads..." Hold tight for the ride of your life "
Not impressed at all, happily that is the first and LAST Vauxhall that I shall ever buy
