If it requires the belt, etc replaced the cars value could be around 500 less.
Do you know why he/she is selling the car??

Caveat Emptor - Buyer Beware

Hi Noel... just edited my post above.. but shes selling it cos shes got something newer, sportier and faster. Shes had the car from new.. so shes as genuine as a seller can be. OK... she's female..... so we all know what trouble THAT brings but apart froim that Ive known her since she was knee-high to a grasshopper
