I gather egr valves on CDTI engines get clogged up and commonly cause the computer in Vectras to go into safe mode to prevent engine damage. Rear brake pipes corroded & need replacing so does a rear caliper. Pads and discs were an advisory on the last MOT and will need replacing over the next 12 months. The engine is really economical (43mpg) and reliable until the egr valve failed.
I had wanted to get it back running again but we live in the countryside and I needed a replacement car quick so I bought another Vectra to get back on the road easily and don't have the time or mechanical knowledge to fix this car. It's been sat on the drive for several months but still starts up first time when I reconnect the battery. Car is SORNed at present. There are also some minor little issues which I'm aware of and have been present since I've owned the car.
When the internal heaters are on full there's vibration on the fan which is intermittent and can be noisy. A couple of the tyres have very slow leaks which I'd not noticed until it was sat on the drive for the last few months. The strip brake light which sits at the bottom of the rear window has never worked, the other normal brake lights work fine. It has 4 alloy wheels but one of them is different as I pinched one for the replacement Vectra as a spare.
There is one of those low speed spare tyres in the boot. The bodywork has all the normal signs of it's age scratches/scuff marks etc.. but nothing major in terms of body damage.The item "Vauxhall Vectra C (2004) SRI 1.9 CDTI Spares or Repair" is in sale since Monday, October 8, 2018.
