Very good Value for a 7 Seater. I think this would be the cheapest in UK?

Great deal for this SEXY beast especially if you get the lifetime warranty (_;)

Pentagon have the 1.7 diesel for £11,495.00 with low rate finance, and lifetime warrenty.

WOW. That is indeed a wonderful price. I do not think you can get it cheaper than that.

you won't get it at that price. I have just called as I'm forces and entitled to a "partner Discount". they stated that that discount is already applied and "joe public" will pay £1000 more than the advertised price. It is mentioned in the small print below the ad.

Is it a car? Is it a van? Is it a minibus?

Yes! It can be all of the above for not much money. A VERY practical beast.Good value at this price. Ignore car snobs, they are not objective.

egr and dpf are a problem, but if you're mainly using this as a town car 100k shouldn't be a problem just a hassle when they conk out. Bought my diesel 16000 miles used, egr gave out only a few hundred miles after. It's now done 70k, average commute is about 50 miles a day and no egr or dpf problems.

Great car and value for money .
Not luxurious but as a mum with three kids and loads of taxiing about I have to do , it's economical and practical and the flex seating is a great advantage.

As Kabs said, EGR & DPF faults are common as they are on all modern diesels if they aren't regularly driven on long runs.

I'm sure they still haven't rectified the rear door electrics faults, ongoing since Vauxhall put electric windows and central locking on their cars. I spent the other week sorting out 5 broken cables between door and centre pillar, the third time in 12 years cables have broken here. The fault became apparent when I opened the rear door to get my daughter in car and the window drove down 4 inches, and stuck there. Also had intermittent ABS fault cleared temporarily by slamming on the brakes to activate ABS and now, it seems permanently by driving through flood water.
On the whole it's not been a bad car (never broken down) and now just passed MOT having done 126,000 miles.

Fuel economy will be awful on the 1.8 petrol, but a cracking deal for a huge capacity car.

Does Vauxhall still use the 'Red that will turn pink in a couple of years' paint?

I have a 1.8 Elite,with no awful fuel economy after 70k,so versatile,love it

If you have had a red Vauxhall over the past few years I'm sure you would have.X)

A picture doesn't really show it in all its candy flossing glory, but here is one anyway.

Look at the colour difference between the front wing and the bumper!


Vauxhalls and Alfas seem to suffer the worst from what I have seen.

If this only comes in red and I wanted to buy one, I think I would need to confirm if the issue is sorted now.

I've seen a few of these. Takes longer than a couple of years (in the UK) and a T-Cut will bring it back to normal.

See the Opel Corsas in Spain with all the sun the colour really goes off.

That Vauxhall has stolen a Ford badge!!

I'm sure other cars have the same problem, it's just Vauxhalls seem to have loads on the road, maybe they have an abnormally high percentage of red cars compared to other manufacturers, or maybe their paint is more susceptible.

Either way, I would not have red as a car colour of choice.

This sounds like it is an employee advertising, rather than a genuine deal!

Bump?

When I was a student I bought a really cheap 1996 Vectra, in three shades of red. It had previously been in a crash and had random red/pink panels for the bonnet and wings. Sold it 3 years later (at night) for the same price I paid originally.

I agree totally.
I've just done a bit of research. Apparently newer cars with solid colours have clear coat layer on top that blocks the UV that causes the fade and it should be less of a problem. Otherwise the car needs a coating applied with UV blocking (sun screen for cars!).

Vauxhall started using Clear Coat after 2008 on all solid colours except for VXRs, they did add the clear coat to VXRs a bit later though and all should be protected now.

*Disclaimer: It was written on the Interweb so it might not be 100% correct....

Apparently older Mazda MX-5 are the worst for this problem:

Old car now it's boring same model for 100 years

Be crazy to paid an extra £800 (7%) just for a different colour, but in my experience all MPV drivers are a little mental. Middle aged men who seem to be angry at being forced to drive an MPV.

Doesn't look like a colour fade to me just looks like a very dirty car, hence the dirty tyre threads.

Colour fade is a problem with lots of reds, but as someone has said, T-cut will restore it, and if you polish / wax your car once or twice a year it should prevent it. Metallic reds don't fade though due to the lacquer coat I presume.

Brother had a red Volvo years ago.it was the same but a good T cut and polish brought it up.
As far as I know you pay a premium for paint on any Vauxhall except red.Wife got a new Corsa 1.3 cdti about 5 yrs ago,I refused to pay the extra for black,I dont know what they did but I did not pay any more than the advertised deal which was red only but it did not say that in ad.

I was tempted to phone Sherlock Holmes up but it's 11:07 and he's probably just chillin' with a vanilla pipe, so I'll hazard a guess and say that both cars were driven in on a road and the road was a bit dusty.

is this car will be in new shape or still the old shape? Thanks

Any red car will fade, i've had audis and bmw go the same way its to do with the pigment level required in all red paint, pigment is vulnerable to oxidisation.
Once it starts t cut will bring it back but the damage is already on its way and increasingly regular polishing will be required to keep things in check.
M3 do a great product called imperial hand glaze that isn't as harsh as t cut and removes only the dead oxidised paint if used sparingly,(always follow with quality non cutting wax) your still fighting a loosing battle but buying your self more time before your running round in a pink car.
Also i wouldn't touch a Vauxhall, far too many sensor/relay issues to be a serious contender in any class. As stated earlier this 1.8 petrol will be very expensive on fuel, add in service costs required to keep warranty valid to pay for those electrical probs and it all racks up to a false economy in my book.
