Buying a new car?

Buying a new car?

My only piece of advice is… if it makes you laugh for any reason – don’t buy it (same goes for the owner)

How to rule out buying a car

ohh the little light on the dash flashes at you… strike 1

hmm the inside smells a bit like gearbox oil/fish/dogs… strike 2

oh what you didn’t know that if you don’t fill up that reservoir the
brakes/power steering don’t work?… strike 3

when was the cambelt last changed?… the what? oh yeah about 3
years ago… strike 4

Got any paperwork? yes including these vinatge photocopies! strike 5
and 6 all in one hit WOW!

Is that a bullet hole on the roof or did you ‘drop’ the car on a small
spike?…strike 67

Umm the car in the pictures was silver yes? This one is white/red/black

strike 99

The tax has ran out but you know a guy who for an extra 25 quid can
tax it for me? wow what a bargain now my tax costs me £125 for 6
months!

strike 101 and out

The following is real either read in an ad or conversations on the phone…

The clutch & gearbox are in the boot as I couldn’t afford to get the repairs done

Externally its not the prettiest of cars, some rust on the rear arches especially,
and can be found in a few other areas, as well as various small dents on both doors, bonnet, boot, roof, and a scratch all along drivers side

the engine sometimes hunts on tickover…. (i’m looking for the macdonalds or a roadkill)

it’s got this security system where you have to hold the clutch down or it wont start… it was my mates car and he lived in a really bad area

I am a baptist minister so i would not lie to you.. and i have been blessed with a mercedes Benz

THE DRIVERS DOOR HAS BEEN SUPERGLUED ON AND WILL NOT OPEN FROM THE INSIDE…. I DO HOWEVER A SPARE DOOR WHICH YOU CAN FIT IF YOU CAN GET IT OFF

this cars is spears or reaper… why cant people fucin smell properly

This is very good runner with excellent engine condition, turbo charger is “briefing” very healthy, there is no licking of any liquid,

peugeot 106 fast sail required!!!

I have owned this car for the past 4 years and it has been absolutely fanstastic in all that time. Unfortunately over the past year it has had a rough time…

Smashed windscreen from when i drove off forgetting to shut the bonnet and it flew up into the windscreen
Dented Bonnet (still shuts)
Slightly flattened wipers
Dented roof from where the bonnet hit the aerial
Dented drivers door with no lock
Dented passenger door

Also, the indicator stalk is troublesome when turning right as it doesn’t seem to latch anymore. Luckily I dont tend to turn right too often so I have just lived with it.

However the good news is that the Haynes Manual for this car is included in this auction which may help any novice with changing the broken/dented items.
