Vauxhall insignia problems and advice

Hi

I'm looking at upgrading my car to something like a Vauxhall insignia, but having spent a lot of money on my previous car on "Common" faults with fords, does anyone have/had an insignia and what issues problems did you have, anything common to look out for or things that need sorting in the future?

Don't want anything fancy for a car just something that is not going to burn me like a hot exhaust lol

I still really like my 12 plate. Only just turned 40k on the clock. Like the design still. Not dated. Just had wear and tear bills really. Not great in the bad weather though the wife keeps minding me lol

How many miles are you getting out of the tyres?

Usually every MOT one needs changed but they're large low profile ones/alloys. Not my choice. My wife uses it on bad country roads to work which doesn't help.

So about 10000 miles a tyre then? I was pricing some up and they are nearly double others. Is it thirsty or good on fuel?

245/40r18 tyres will see you about 10-12k miles per a year on the sri and elite models. lower spec the tyres last longer on the 225/55r17 models. depends what you want a petrol or diesel they both have there ups and downs very nice cars to drive in my mind. im a master tech for vauxhall so i have worked on these alot
