I have had my Vectra SRi for 4.5 years, covered 120,000 miles in it and it has never let me down. It has ABS, and that's all, so you get to drive it properly. It,s lowered suspension helps you in the corners and provided you are in the right gear, the torque pulls you through it smoothly. You can almost list one of your hobbies as "motoring".
The stereo is excellent, plays MP3 files as well, so I have one disc with 12 albums on, who needs a multichanger. I also plug my iPhone in for better music enjoyment via the jack plug in the center consul. The seats are supportive in a straight line and while cornering. If you have one with the Sat Nav, it is worth every penny as this option works off postcodes street names and house numbers, so takes you to the door of your destination.
Acceleration in 5th is staggering above 65mph, you will reach 100mph very quickly as the pull on it is a real surprise. 0-60 is in the 9 second region, no slouch for a diesel by any standards. I have driven my car for work for most of the miles and always felt that the car, under any weather conditions, was well balanced and forgiving.
The boot is huge with a light, no ratting, aircon is more than adequate and dealt with all the extream temperatures. I have to change my car ow and quite frankly, will be sad to see it go, as I have driven the Insignia which is soulless in comparison to this model,
