Owned a vectra Sri 150 Xpack in flame red, 19inch alloys, stunning car, had no issues unitl trade in at 33k. Decided to change to an estate car when baby number two was due for the extra space. Dual mass fly wheel and clutch was going and needed replacing cost 1300 at vauxhall dealer. This is a common fault with lots of other diesels and not only vauxhall. Had the same thing happen on a peugeot 307 HDI 2.0, again cost over 1300k. These are only good for about 3/4 years of motoring before they a prone to failure. Vauxhall would not cover under warranty either as said they would only cover up to 18500 miles, what a load of tosh the warranty is then! Other than this fault car has been great, loads of power, very economical about 45mpg and handles superb. Very expensive the tyres though on the 19inch low profiles, about £175 each toyo's. Ouch !!!
