As long as it doesn't blow up!!

Thats a good price for sure, only a 100 odd pounds more than I paid for my Fiesta in March, but that did include metallic paint, bluetooth and voice control.

A word of warning though, we owned a 58 plate Vectra with a 1.8 VVT engine previously, and we found the engine a little noisy and lacking in power, also economy was only average, but you would expect that with a 1.8 petrol.

That said, its a decent size family car for the money, if you are in the market for one.

Why would it? Have you driven the new Insignia?

Having driven mine for the last 37,000 miles without a single problem, that price is superb, but the fuel economy will be rank! Not a problem as you will have saved yourself a fortune and as for depreciation, why worry!

Amazing car for the cash. Anyone who cares to state that the Insignia is an awful car is deranged!

My EcoFlex attains 49mpg, not bad for a car with a footprint the size of a Transit van!

Watch BBC Watchdog next week.

We had a big batch of 58 plates and everyone had issues, some lasting months waiting for parts etc... My 10 plate was perfect for the 80,000 miles I had it and it's still going strong. Lovely car but I'd stick to the diesel for such a big car.

If you're going to buy something that weighs two tonnes, get a diesel.

This car is not even worth £18.7k list. Besides, one can get the same car on a 60 plate with 5,000 miles for £9k

Evans Halshaw - just check out comments about them on the web. Awful for Customer Service. We bought a car from them - great service before the sale. When things went wrong their service was awful. Booked appointments, confirmed them, then they said we had no bookings. Car in multiple times with no fixes. Should not have bought Vauxhall and certainly not from Evans Halshaw. By the way, they will also try to sell you all sorts of insurance extras to jack the price back up. Shame as we had a Vauxhall in the past and it was great but not so any more. Should also have known Evans H better as had issues with them when I had a Citroen. Save your money!

Given that a new Fiat 500 is nearly 10k now, this is a very good deal especially given the warranty.

No car snobbery here - have some heat.

I think they raised the issue of the advertised Lifetime (100,000 mile) Warranty previously on Watchdog and found it isn't worth the paper written on as they will persistently attempt to shift blame on to owners.

The warranty appears to be non-transferable

"Vauxhall Lifetime Warranty covers lifetime ownership of first registered keeper, 100,000 mile limit. Terms and conditions apply. "

That's gotta be worth the extra money not to mention getting an actual new car. Not to mention, where can you get a deal like that?
Edited by: "jamesdew" 26th Apr 2012

You would be better spending half that amount on a decent 2nd hand car with a better engine, better equipment, better economy and overall for ownership of the car costs far less.

Terrible engine, never driven a poorer car in this category.

COLD, not a Diesel

A friend test drove one around 4 months back. His family are all tall and his 6' 1" son had to site crouched in the back seat (his taller brother sat in the front without problem). His 5'10" daughter's head was brushing the roof in the back. Fine if you have short or young children who are sitting in the back.

Only £600 more than I paid for my Astra (with same engine), have some heat. The lifetime warranty is great for low to average mile drivers. For those who are recommending diesel over petrol, remember some people don't do enough miles to warranty the price difference and low mileage will ruin a modern diesel engine, as all dealers now have to warn customers the same.

The deal says "from only £11,991". You may have to qualify for partnership discounts and/or part exchange to hit this low figure . If not, it's a good deal.

That is why you test drive! This is a HOT deal...FULL STOP!

I'm 6' and fit fine in the back of my dad's Insignia and his A4, the Insignia does have a sloaping roof though which gives the almost coupe /hatchback looks. Try getting in a Passat CC, I whacked my head on the way in and out of one.

I dont think so, there are other deals on EH that require PX and are quite clear about it, this page doesnt say from]

I believe they just mean the basic model, you probably have to pay extra for metalic paint etc.

As the first three years warranty terms haven't changed and the 'lifetime' warranty has only been around for two years, I don't see how they would be even having any issues yet.

Warranty is transferable to second owner, providing car is Network Q approved, less than 1 year old and under 30k miles.

I have the CDTi, 160, great car.

Bargain, got a 61 plate (Sri diesel) and they are nice motors.

Not so good for tight multistorys though it could be just me!

The 1.8vvt engine isn't bad at all in a vectra. Mine returns 33mpg round town and for a weeks hol up in the cheviots 45.6 mpg on a 500 mile round trip. Yes its not the quickest but they are less prone to problems than their diesel counterparts

I had a courtesy SRI CDTI 160 for two weeks while I was having some bodywork done, loved it. My Dad has the Elite ecoflex at the moment and it's a belter.

Not far off what I get in an Astra, I did hear the Vectra is more aerodynamic than the Astra so on the motorway similar mpg. The Insignia is quite a bit heavier though, think I would go for a turbo petrol if I ever had one.

They don't mention the transfer of the lifetime warranty on the Network Q website anymore.I was looking last weekend and noticed it was missing Shame if they have dropped that feature.

If it's as good as the Vectra it will be fine. I have owned 4 Vectras and they have been fantastic cars each doing 200000 in the 4 years that I kept them. Apart from tyres, bulbs and brake pads nothing went wrong with them.

Didn't notice it was Evans Halshaw. My nephew purchased a 56 Fiesta from the Newport branch 15 months ago. When he test drove it, there was a rattle and the battery was flat. They said it had not been used by the previous owner and it just needed charging. He took out their extended warranty and within a week, the battery was flat again. He took it to his local garage and they told him the alterniator had packed up. He contacted EH who stated alternator's are not covered under their extended warranty. They obviously knew the problem was there and pulled a fast one. He complained to Ford who said it had nothing to do with them as they have no control over any dealership as they do not own it.

Cheap as chips. Its no wonder we're swapping our astra panda's for these at work.

You're right even in solid paint the Op still needs to add £55 (reg fee) and £325 (first year rfl).

The new Insignia is a really good car. Lightyears better than the Vectra

Only problem with this deal is that the 1.8 engine is crap and underpowered.

It's not a crap engine, it's actually very reliable and revvy, it's just not the right choice for a heavy car.

COLD! I dont drive.
