      Vectra seems ok, but if you don't want a car with outrageous depreciation then probably best to steer clear....

            I changed from an 05 Signum 3.0CDTi Design and have no regrets, smaller car, yes but more comfortable on a long run, lots more fun although the Signum handled quite well for a big car, depreciation was a major factor as the Signum/Vectra range lose money horrendously.

              VXR should hold its own as it will not be a fleet car

              more like a muscle car

                Astra VXR residuals seem to be pretty good but the Vectra VXR residuals are still poor

                    thats the one thing that worries me about buying a new corsa VXR, the potentially horrendous rate of depreciation. Thats why im not buying brand new - ill pick one up 2nd hand with a good few £k off.... I hope.

                        Yeah, but I tend to run cars until 6yrs and 120k plus, at which point they are all worth £2.50 and a packet of crisps anyway. You can get them brand new for under £20k if you know where to look, which helps.

                        If you change your car every year, the Vectra is not a good choice new, but better if you can get a 12mth old one at the right price. The only way to avoid depreciation is to buy a "desirable" car, and put no miles on it.
