  • What TAX band is my car coz I am getting confused!

    Ok I have a 1.9 CDTI 150 on a 56 plate, In the 2010 Astra sport hatch and Twin-top advertising booklet under "Technical Data" it says that my car has a C02 Emission of 149g/km and it says the exact same on auto trader which would mean my car is in Tax band F.
    BUT I got my renewal today for the Tax (first one for me only had the car 6 months) and it says that my car is in band G and produces 157g/km !?

    So instead of being £130 for band F I have to fork-out £165 coz its in band G??

    I even rang-up Vauxhall Greenhous to find out, one woman said she didn't know so passed me over to another woman who told me that her computer is saying its 157g/km not 149g/km so I asked why is it saying in the brochure that its 149? To which she said I don't know about that but my computer says its 157

    If anybody has a dirty derv 150 could you let me know how much you pay please?

    Here is the brochure - it's page 49 - 1.9CDTi 16v (150PS) 16/18 130 8.3 5.9 39.2 (7.2) 60.1 (4.7) 50.4 (5.6) 149

    What does it say on the V5, as tax will be based on this figure.

      It says 157g/km on the V5
      But why is Vauxhall saying its 149 in there own advertising brochure?

        Could be down to year, model of the car as CO2 figures can change.

          It might not be relevant, but I know with the old corsa c 1.3d if you chose the optional 16" alloys instead of 15" it bumped up a tax bracket!

            The 2010 models must be running a different engine component or something along those lines that brings the emmisions down a notch. I know with the vectras the 1.9 cdti 150 fitted with auto boxs and estates had DPF's to keep the tax down.

              A '56 plated one will not have a DPF, however a later one will. How recent is the brochure you're comparing it to?

              Just to add, its worth paying the extra on the tax & not having a DPF as they are garbage. They are causing so much trouble lately on Zafira's especially, from clogging up.

                If you look at the July 06 owners manual which is relevent to your car, it states the CO2 is 157, dont understand why you are using data from a 2010 model when manufacturers had tightened up on emissions, as said levels change for all sorts of reasons, the later corsa VXR produces less CO2 so is cheaper than the earlier cars.



                my VXR history: Arden Corsa, Astra Nurburgring, Corsa Arctic, Evoke VXR8, Black Corsa, Silver Vectra, a long weekend with an Insignia, a chilli burger and now a siggy tourer!

                  +1 to DPF being garbage. Same when I worked at Jaguar, the DPF was the main problem people were in the garage with probs. DPF would be full and wouldn't re gen itself and the car went into restricted performance mode
