We had a zafira for a few years and changed everything. It used to run on the !motorway no problems but would act strange sometimes cutting out. These vauxhalls have a fault with the speedo dials needing a bit of extra pressure inwards for a good connection. This solves a lot of cutting out issues. Also we had many false fault codes which we changed everything with no result. The problem lies with the engine loom connector. Looks like a small ECU on top right of engine . this needs sending away to be repaired
