Vauxhall Vectra VXR

All is well but the Vectra's route finder talks with a forked tongue

Vauxhall Vectra VXR

I knew the Vectra was a big car – for a recent holiday to Yorkshire I’d managed to fit in a mountain of luggage and still have the rear seats free for three passengers – but I recently discovered that my surfboard will actually fit inside – just – if I put one seat down. So I’m now desperately trying to sort out some trips to the coast. I won’t be using the sat-nav to get there, though. As brilliant as the TMC system is at warning of impending doom on the motorway, the actual route-finder tends to find the most bizarre ways of getting from A to B. Otherwise all is well; even the seats seem to be getting more comfortable now.
