I'm looking at buying a 1.9 CDTi 150 Vectra. I believe this shares the same engine as the Astra. I've been over on Vectra-c.com and there seems to be loads of horror stories about problems with this engine. What's people's experiences of it in the Astra? Has it been good for you or have you had loads of problems with EGR, swirl flaps, DMF etc?
Someone said the swirl flaps were refurbed around 2005 and the problem has been resolved, can anyone confirm/deny this?
