Re: Clio 2 1.5 DCI - high mileage - worth spending money on?
Thanks a lot for that viewpoint. Has it been loved? If by that you mean taken on a number of surf trips, I'd say yes
I wouldn't even have the first clue how to sell something like this - the receipt I got from the garage even says "customer advised not to drive".
You'll always love your first car - it's your first major milestone on your route as an independent adult.
I meant has it been loved by previous owners? If it's been bodged, then I suspect not - somebody who places themselves, passengers and others at risk, to save a few pounds - doesn't have much respect. (or love).
If you trust the garage, take their opinion on board, they could quite happily sit-back and take the money from you, repair by repair, but it sounds to me like they have your best interest at heart.
As for selling the car; advertise it on gumtree,
. autotrader or some free selling groups on facebook - just describe the basics, no need to go into massive detail and set what you feel is a fair price.
After all, you bought the car, so its a reversal of the same procedure.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
2005 FIAT Ducato 2.8JTD LWB Gran Volume, 2000 Kawasaki ZZR 1100 D7 'fullpower' in black + full GIVI & KAPPA luggage, 2007 MB R-Class 320 CDi Sport LWB uprated by Brabus to 300Bhp don't know if there's a 155mph limiter - will be fun finding out! 2004 Mercedes Vaneo 1.7 CDi Ambiente 7-seater
