Thumbs up Things I hate about the car.

It is a decent car but I do have my gripes about it. I have an 06 aero 2.8t and here are my gripes.

1. Laggy first gear in sentronic.
2. Random Squeeks throughout the cabin
3. Front and Rear Windshield trim tends to get old and crack
4. Lousy overall suspension setup. To much body roll and a lot of understeer.
5. Having a phone button on the console and steering wheel when the option isn't even on the car.
6. Lack of aftermarket support. There aren't any full 3" turbo back exhaust for the car. Luckily the Vauxhall Vectra VXR is the same car with different styling and Miltek makes one.

Overall I would rate the car a 7 out of 10.

Hmm, I have the Nav, and I do have the phone option, I am not sure if there is a bluetooth setup for my phone, but I haven't gone through the manual yet. The suspension is pretty nice, I think it's smooth and so does my friends, If needed I could always upgrade the suspension. I don't plan on doing any mods other than rims and tints, plus I haven't really used the sentronic yet. I am babying this car lol

The bluetooth option only comes with the Nav package. The buttons are there regardless. You also get the Bose stereo with the Nav package.

I've had my 07 93 SC Aero for a little over 2.5 years, just turned 35K and overall I'm happy with the car. I wish it had more room in the cabin. I've the inner trim around the rear windows replaced twice now and it blows marker light bulbs and foglight bulbs pretty often. The Combi is a little heavier in the rear than the SS and I'm pleased with the handling. It does bounce and crash it's way over potholes, however. Invest in a set of 16 inch winter wheels. I've had mine on a quite few road trips and I love how comfortable this car is. I got mine on Euro Delivery and I had a Hirsch ECU upgrade done by the dealer in Copenhagen. The only other things I've done are tint and a K&N air filter.
