Re: Buying advice on 1.4 Kangoo?

Well we started it which apparently is the first time since before Christmas, the battery's knackered and it rattled from cold, hydraulic tappets?
There's a slight miss fire on tickover which clears as the revs pick up so it could be the duff battery or coil pack, leads, plugs etc but it started easily.
The exhaust manifold is cracked and has been bodged with exhaust joint gum, it's done 140,000 and the handbrake was seized on and is still dragging. The heater didn't work despite the temperature gauge running up to half way.

I'm still quite keen as it would come with a fresh MoT as long as the price reflects the other issues I'll want to fix in my own time.
