    2000 X reg zafira. Bought it for 9000.00 in 2004. At 6 months and 44000 miles later, the timing belt snapped taking 10 valves out. Cost £1500.00 to put right. 1 week later all the piston rings failed which cost another £1500.00 to put right. 13 month after that, the valves stems all failed and was putting almost 5 litres of oil in a week. Was glad to get rid of it in the end. Had a 1.6 16v ecotech engine.
