Espace 2.2 DT servicing


I am currently looking at this car on ebay : Click me.

So it reads that it has a problem with the exhaust, so i thought i would ring my local dealer and establish how much a compleate replacement would be, including cat. While i was there i added a few things to the shopping list to see what future costs i may be looking at:

72k Service [includes all fluids] 370.00
Cambelt change 842
Cat back exhaust 471
Cat 541
Front and rear discs and pads fitted 660
x4 new tyre's premium brand 400
Air con re-gas 80

Total cost for a 'few bits' 3364

Suddenly the car appears less of a desirable used car. I will consider all my options before buying but it is amazing how quickly things add up with a few replacement parts!

Be aware buyers
