Re: Car purchase advice please

I have to agree with the above,walk away whilst you still have your sanity.

Auto box problems will out weigh the price of the car,there are known issues with the throttle body /water ingress into the ECU causing irratic idling which on an auto could be scary.TPMS problems,rear axle bushes,window regulators...etc....etc.....

If you only take one piece of advice in your life,let it be this one....

Yes,it's a cheap car for the age,but please walk away.
