Well, it was short and sweet but I have parted with it - I had my older (58) plate 2ltr diesel for 10 months but after one or two issues and a new potential one (a slight leak of diesel or maybe trans fluid from the rear) I have bit the bullet (and taken a big loss) to trade it for a black Insignia 2.0 cdti163 Ltd Edition.
I would imagine many people with older Antara's like mine will eventually find the resale value is virtually nil, mainly because of fuel consumption, high road tax etc.
I did post a while back that I paid too much for it and that certainly proved to be the case when trading but on the plus side, am really liking my new car.

Good luck with your new vehicle. My view is that I'm going to run and run the vehicle,as I use it for work. It will be worth next to nothing when ive done 140K but my work will have paid for it twice

My wife says that I never listen or something like that !

Sorry you had a bad experience with your Antara, Briser but at least you've stuck with Vauxhall. Best of luck with the new one.
