Run away. Quickly.

Very different engine to the Omega 2.2. It has a high pressure electro mechanical fuel pump on the engine which reacts badly to lower quality petrol (the diaphragm in it breaks down and kills both pump and injectors) and should be considered already damaged unless it's just been replaced. The only fix is a new pump .

Best every day engine on these is either the 1.8 140 bhp or the 1.9 8v 120 bhp diesel.

Also, for all this effort, you only get 10 bhp more than the 1.8 and around 6-10 mpg less.

It's the one Vectra C that I would actively avoid :y
