    Thinking of buying a new shape astra, veccy or zafira, how much should i be paying?

    Me and our lass have decided its time to get rid of one of the cars and replace it with one of the above. Were not to arsed about the year as long as the mileage isnt too high.

    Any ideas on how much i should paying for a:

    2l Vectra
    Zafira GSI
    Astra mk5 SRI

    Basically something newer with a bit of poke, doesnt have to be them models specifically.

    All suggestions welcome

    Cheers

    if you want to buy brand new, the 1.6turbo from the corsa VXR is supposed to be quite impressive in the astra. At £18650 for the SRi though, it's a dent to the wallet

    this is going to be one massive range of prices, e.g a 2l vectra could be from a 1995 one worth £400 to a 2004 worth £6000,

    best bet is to just look on parkers to compare book prices, and then autotrader to see sale prices,
    Drives - 08 Astra SRi XP 1.9CDTi 150

    Really need some sort of budget to go on matey, as Andy says - your criteria covers a very wide range of cars.

    A used Vectra C SRi offers very good value for money as they lose so much cash in their early years. A 1.8 or 2.2 SRi under 5 years old makes a good purchase, or the CDTi if you do a lot of miles.
    Previous Astras: 1994 Cesaro 1.8 16v | 2002 SXi 1.6 16v | 2001 Coupé 2.0 Turbo | 1999 LS 1.6 16v
    Other Vauxhalls: 2001 Vectra 1.8 16v| 2003 Vectra GSi 3.2 V6 | 2005 Signum CDTi 150

    looking at spending around 5k and were gonna sell the clio for about 1.5k so about 6.5k.

    The vectra and zaffy are out the window, our lass didnt realise how "big" they were. "ill never reverse that"....etc etc so looks like its gonna an astra, 3 door preferably. That narrows it down a bit

    For a family car, it's hard to beat a Vectra. 1.8VVT SRi, 6 months old for £10k, 1.9CDTi-150 SRi 6 months old for £13k.
    2007 Metro Blue 5 door Mk5 Elite 1.7CDTI
    6th Vauxhall (4th Astra) in 10 years...plus a couple of other sheds...

    Your going to struggle to get a decent spec MK5 (certainly not an SRi)for that sort of money, unless its a high miler and even at that will be a bit of a push. Youd get a decent MK4 for that money though.
