Well, well over 13 months now.

It remains a comfortable mile cruncher, with a decent turn of speed.

I'd say on average, I get low 30s mpg. I've had the occasional high 30s from a tank, and the occasional high 20s as well.

Failures have included:
Both front CDL motors
Front lower front wishbone arm bushes, replaced with polys
A single bonnet strut
A touchscreen display (might have been my fault ;D)
A failed NSR wheel bearing...   ...twice
A failed headlight washer extender thing (probably the shit ECP screenwash that froze)

Touchscreen excluded (you clutz!) that does seem like quite a list. Compared to the ovlov at least (12m, 3 days and 35k onto ownership), which has wanted for nothing other than oil, filters, headlight bulbs, tyres and wheel alignment.

Do you think itís down to build quality, driving style, complexity or luck?

It will bite you one day, but I suppose having access to a Tech 2 isnt so much of an issue.  :)

I'm a real wimp, I diss the Battery and then leave for 10 mins whilst drinking Tea and trying to remember where I left the Fisrt Aid Kit.  :-[

The First Aid bit is just in case I have another occurrence of smashing my Face when the Steering suddenly decides it will come off after all.   >:( ;D

That's why you just loosen, but don't remove the nut. Or get someone else to smash them self in the face with remove the steering wheel ;)

12x1.50 rings a bell, bet I'm wrong tho.

That's what they are. But it's a non-prefered size so you'll probably have to order a tap.

What's that mean Nick ?

Metric threads are normally the coarse pitch, which would be 1.75mm for an M12 fastener. For some reason cars are littered with M12x1.5 threads, which most suppliers have to order in. That includes nuts, bolts, taps and dies.

Might have a spare, new, unbranded hub here...

IF I need it, how quick could you get it in the post Al ?

I'd rather not if I can get away with it because knowing me (just like the other side I did a couple of years ago) i'll smash the abs sensor too  :'(

I took my 3.2 to Vauxhall for a re-gas, they gave it a free health check on the side. Came out all good!

Suspect I will get them to service the Zaf, keep book going on a 2014 year.
Wifey's is a 66 plate, but I see no reason for a main dealer service.

Can you get a 1.6 turbo? I haven't come across any.

Not in the Zafira Tourer, usually see them in Astra type, Mokka etc.  :y
Thought not, only ones I've seen are 1.4T and 1.8i.
