easy. had a renault 19 before the zaf, also have 5 kids, so lets do the maths, renault 19 + 5 kids = breaking the law, so had to buy a 7 seater. the zaf came up around the right time, so i tearfully parted with 13,000 notes of euroage for what was then a 3 year old zaf with 35k on the clock. touch wood she's not let us down yet........

same reason here, had a vectra before with 4 kids so just couldnt go anywhere so got one before the forth was due. the mrs came with me to pick it up when she had a week to go and was a 7 hour round trip with good roads and of corse they wasnt (10 hours latter).

well first of all the size, its not as big as the toyota previas or the ford galaxy but big enough for my family, i like the idea that its like a stretched astra. meaning my wife can also drive it.

the foldable rear seats was the main attraction for me at the time i thaught it was very genius. i came to like more the more i drove it because its just like a normal car and it doesnt feel like a van to be honest.

the advert "daddy cool" is probably spot on when it comes to why we bought the Zafira.

Ive only got 2 kids and initialy fancied an astra gsi, but due to only having a licence 2 years insurance was through the roof, the zaffy was nearly £400 less a year. deffo wouldnt go back now.

Had a very Fast 1992 Cavalier SRI...For 8years prior to Zaf GSI and decided that after reaching 235000 miles on the clock in it to treat myself to something newer.....my son had bought an Astra GSI in arden blue (love the colour) a year before i got the Zaf and i loved the feel of driving it around..It was 10 fold better than my Cavi...so i thought i would get an Astra gsi for myself..but then my other son who had to little daughter already (whom i carry around every where as he or his wife cant drive) had a pair of twin girls making there family a family of 6,and i said to my son with the Astra.that put the Astra out of the plan...and he came up with the idea of a GSI turbo Zafira in arden blue...
the next day he told me he found one in exmouth 15 miles away...
We went down that evening and i bought it... havent regretted it at all..
had it 17 months now..

needed an occasional 6/7 seater, so didn't really want a galaxy or similar, so went looking at zaffs, read some horror stories about the diesels and their filters clogging up, so went for a petrol. bought a 1.6 which is doing me fine at the moment, will definatly be replacing this bus with another one when the time comes around, will probably go for bigger engine next time, After being on here and seeing the pictures i might start saving for a VXR!!!! lol

Had a Primera before (it died) the wife said she wanted a 7 seater heard horror stories about the galaxy/sharan so that was out the question then the wife saw the zaffy in auto trader, bought it about a month ago and not looked back since the only thing wrong so far is the dreaded EGR valve that needs changing £160 ouch!

got to be the space and the flexability of the zaf.i'm married with 2 kids.
my parents and my wife's parents are getting on a bit so with the zaf we can still take one set of parents out for the day if we fancy it. after having the 'bus' now for around 9 months we love it and will definately have another one when the time comes but i feel the same as clarky69 and will be getting one with a bit more oooommmphh than the 1.6.

Came up on the company car option list, so with four children and the family Pug 406 (7 Seater) 10 years old I went for it over the Vectra, now on my second Zafira.

well..i havent got one yet....

but the reason im going to get one is,i find the vec isnt a big enough car for the kids (got 2) but also the misses is on about another..so the vec would deffo be to small...

now i love vauxhalls...so like to keep to the same...so the zafira seems like a nice choice...i have always had a soft spot for them..especially the gsi...but never thought would be within my grasp...

i could never have a "normal" car..has to have that lil somet to it...and it just ticks so many boxes...

so has to be the zaf gsi

i had an 06 plate vec-c before my bus and found as my kids (i have 2) are kidding older they need more room in the back, made worse as i need the seat all the way back cuz i am a freak
also needed a more upright driving position after doing my back in at work, went to my local vx dealer to have a look about and ended up with a very good deal on my bus, very glad i made the change, more then enough room in it, more comfortable to drive and doesnt handle like a van

We were satisfied with my Brava 80_16V but then we moved 1200 km away and the coming of our second daughter made me start looking for a big-boot car. 6-7 weekends I did nothing but tested cars. The new Megane Grandtour 1,5 dCI had little to add to the Brava's boot. The new Octavia Combi Greenline 1,6 CR TDI was good but I needed something to compare with. Having nothing else in that category (I didn't fancy being extra charged for the brand) I started looking in the van-category. There I tested the Grand Scenic and found it very ergonomic but more like a bus. I went for a Grand Picasso for its UFO-look and great interieur but the driving turned out to be more like cruising in a boat. The Zafira was the most car-like van, so I tested all 1,7 CDTI versions (125 HP, 110 HP and ecoFLEX). Then we went for a holyday where I got a very good offer for a 125 HP Cosmo right before the closure of the air-space due to the volcanic ash from Iceland. So instead renting a car when rental fees rocketed I bought the Zaf.

I was afraid of the large A pillar and the high fuel consumption of the test-cars. The pillar turned out being acceptable, while the average for the 3000 km I have been driving is 6l/100km. I also missed the engine temp being displayed but turned out that the board computer knows it in test mode.

Q: does anybody have 1,7 CDTI Zaf? Is there a reason for "no"?
