Cool Well should I cut 'n' run ....

Although I cant knock it the Scenic 1.6 RXE is a grand family car! But thats where it ends ...

One problem after another keeps servicing in the limelight!!

1st electrics where all over the place, indicators ... Then airhose & radio dispaly needed replacement! (Have 2nd hd parts to fit)

Next was the main speedo clocks! (Which I got done today)

* Now am told I need a new clutch, a timing belt would be advisable ... May hafta have a looksee at you water pump!

Brakes are a little iffy, may need replacing!! A/C is making a knocking noise when switched on ~ Cant hear it inside

Oooo and i need new tyres ..... Arrrggghhh!!!! Will I cut 'n' run and trade it in ??????

** Has 70,080M & now new clock is reading 2M **

It is always a difficult situation to be in......

Do you either spend money on it and keep it,and hopefully have a few years of problem free motoring,or do you put that money towards towards another car that could be just as troublesome.

If you've lost confidence in the car and are fed up with it,then I'd trade it in and buy something else from a dealer with a decent warranty on it.

If you still like the car,then spend the cash thats needed to get it to a condition where hopefully that will be the end of the big bills for the foreseeable future.

I know it's very difficult,and I don't know your financial position,but I'd be tempted to spend the cash on your Scenic and keep it.Any car needs tyres,brakes,cambelts etc,so these are just maintenance costs.

Just one point though,if your car hasn't had a cambelt change from new,then it's well over due.They need to be changed every 72k or 5 years,so yours has done well to last this long!

Let us know what you decide,and the best of luck to you in whichever decision you come to.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
