I've had mine for about 3 years now & while it is a lovely comfortable, spacious & speedy car it has suffered heaps of problems. The Air Conditioning system has a serious problem with moisture ingression & has had to be fixed several times. The turbo hose has blown up. The electric window buttons need cleaning out regularly or they stop working. The limp mode comes on with alarming regularity for seemingly no reason. The radiator light is stuck on. The boot lid rattles like buggery & if you… Read Full Review

Good looking, well equipped and economical. However, the ride quality is a joke! I have never driven a car with a ride quality as bad, that includes all manner of 'Hot Hatches'. It has broken every spring atleast once, despite being driven sensibly and slowly. I even travel out of my way to avoid bad roads. The short Rubber section of the Turbo pipe perished, and Vauxhall will only sell the full system, RIP OFF! Section that goes is only 8 inches long!
Electric windows work when they want, and… Read Full Review

Its a bit disapointment but I'm going to service on monday and hopefully they can fix it.Anyway this is a really nice car and I'm glad that I… Read Full Review

The Vauxhall Vectra 2.2DTI Elite is a lovely big family car with all the extras.
Great for long journeys. Not at its best for cold early morning short journeys like a lot of mine are (managed to get the mpg down to 35mpg)
but hey I can live with that.
I like everything about the car. And so does the family… Read Full Review

I have recently moved over to the new Vectra C from the Vectra B, both were DTI's. The Vauxhall Vectra 2.2DTI Elite is a superb family car, well equipt, economical and vastly improved cabin sound proofing in comparison to the last model. The indicator system took some getting use to, as did the use of the computer. There is less body roll through high speed corners and the Traction Control is a very useful. A vast improvement over the Vectra B… Read Full Review

This car Vauxhall Vectra 2.2DTI Elite is a HUGE improvement over the last Vectra. In fact, I am surprised that they even called it a Vectra as it is like day and night compared to its predecessor. Gone is all the body roll and the steering and gearchange are far more precise. The car has no internal rattles or squeaks either.
Great fuel economy for a heavy car - On the highway by driving at reasonably constant speeds of 60 - 70mph it is easy to achieve 52mpg or more. The best so far is 59.4mpg… Read Full Review
