    Possible Vectra Purchase.

    Hello, looking for some information on Vectra's and cant be bothered to sign up to another website just to ask.

    Whats the bad points about them? I know the 2.2 engine had problems with the chain and some were recalled iirc but how do i go about finding out about it if the owner does not know?

    Also what other common problems is there with them? I have seen a 2001 2.2 SRi hatchback with 110k miles on clock with full years MOT but the ABS ring has just broken on it. Not very sure about this but i have been told this is easy to fix. The car is very cheap as the person wants a quick sale and already has another car.


    Any help would be good thanks.

    I had a 1.8 LS Vectra

    Cost me £350

    Was actually a decent car that had a very tough life and I ran out of money and time to fix it


    Look under for rust on the fuel tank as they corrode and leak; like mine. Easy fix though

    Electrics; cruise control and especially the mdf can either be faded or not work

    Abs rings are easy to fit as mine broke as well

    but Tees is asking about a 2001 Vectra, so it'll be a Vectra B.
