Good value car.

Costs

After a year and half of perfect driving, there was a water and oil leek at the same time. Had to use a new Vectra 1.8 and what a shock it was for fuel. Then the engine managment light came on 3 times same day. Took the car to VX, a clutch switch!?

Performance

Not bad for an oil burner. Turbo is good between 2 and 3000rpm. Top end not there, out of puff fast.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Was good up until the comments above. Had 4 Vx's in 9 years and all have this engine managment problem.
