2006 Vauxhall Tigra Petrol Manual Convertible by Tiger • 18th August 2018
Great nippy little car, easy to run, cheap car tax, cheap insurance cost and groupage, only annoying thing is you can open the boot lid inside the car but have to hold the button at the rear to lower it, not good in pouring rain, other than that perfect little roadster

2006 Vauxhall Zafira Diesel Manual MPV by Breffny2012 • 10th December 2012
Firstly i have a reason for giving a good Score as i sell mostly Zafira's but this is not a sales pitch.The best thing i can say is Value For Money,and that is both petrol and Diesel versions.Most practical in regards to quick seat adjustment and the middle set on a sliding rail is excellent for extra boot space.1.9 Diesel has some minor issues (egr Valves,Flywheels)but then again every modern diesel car has the same issues and at least they are not a total fortune to get fixed.New 1.7 diesel is a big improvement.Petrols go for 1.6 as 1.8 can be a bit thirsty .Overall having sold 100s of these i can only highly praise them as not an alternative to the overpriced Ford and VW equivelents but as a much smarter and wiser investment which wont break the bank.
2006 Vauxhall Vectra Diesel Manual 6 speed Hatchback by DJ • 29th April 2012
Lovely car to drive , has plenty of performance acceleration when required. Road holding is leech-like and handling is nicely weighted balanced with good feedback through steering and Sports suspension awith 17" Alloys. Braking is easy and assured , no hysterics , no fadeout , nicely weighted pedal feel..Handbrake is not as impressive , just about does its job! Careful parking on a slope!
Fuel economy (when you consider the performance) is really good working out at(58mpg)overall..63+mpg on motorway at 80mph , around 52mpg in urban/town traffic!
Alternator burnout is common between 90-120K
miles..as is , Dual-mass Clutch failure a well known problem , also the EGR valve jamming/failing and Injector wiring loom problems(there was a recall to remedy)
Heater Fan/Blower thermistor failures are common too.. Water pump & Timing belt replacements are crucial , not to be neglected!
Other wise car is 100% reliable and requires only regular servicing , ie Oil & Filter every
20K miles if using 05-30W fully synthetic Castrol or Mobil..
Love the car , has ample interior space with good boot , good supportive seats.
Dash is typical Germanic/functional but everything works!
a Value for money car! :)
