Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Just changed my car to a 03 Vectra 2. 2 dti but have not had a chance to tow with it as yet, all the stats seem to indicate this as a good tow car but would appreciate it if anyone has towed with one to let me know if it is all I hope it to be. There are lots of comments on the Mondeo which is a very good motor but as yet none on the Vauxhall. Ta in advance. :unsure:

Hi i don't know anyone personally who has one but practical caravan gave it a good review and what towcar. com would be able to give you all performance figures of your car and your van when you compute a outfit.

my pal swears by his 2. 2 diesel as a towing car - great uphill starts and a smooth ride / good suspension.

 

but keep a check on timing belt for signs of wear - timing belts remain an issue with Vauxhalls - with a change needed at least every 40k miles. Along with landrover head gaskets, snapped Vauxhall timing belts keep motor engineers in business.
