    Default new to this, any help please? vectra vxr timing chain

    Hi all, new to the forum, about to purchase a vectra vxr with 50k on the clock 2007 plate, cars been well looked after but im nervous regarding these timing chains (had a timing belt snap before)
    Does anybody know the servicing on them, approx cost, signs or symptoms pre failure?

    Any help greatly received. Sorry if there is a thread already, not sure where to start on new forums.

    Cheers Danny.

    They are supposed to be for the life of the vehicle so unless its got any horrible rattles or fault codes showing i wouldnt worry, its not as common a problem as you might think its just the ones that do go get highlited on here so its seems bigger than it is
