With just over a week to go, before we land in Adelaide - I am shortlisting cars to view.
I should go for something practical, economical etc, etc....... But thats not really me, when it comes to cars.
Here in the UK my wife always has the new car and over the last few years i have taken to driving older, comfy barge (old Jags, that kind of thing) type cars.
The budget for my car (which initially will be our only car) will be $5500 - Which really doesn't buy much.
However, i have seen this car advertised:
And it looks like something i could happily waft around in - Its hansom (in its own kind of way) has lots of equipment and looks relatively understated.
I know it has 250k on the odometer, but then everything thing i look at seems to have 250k on the odometer.
Does anyone know much about these cars? And specifically the engine? Is it belt or chain driven? does it have any inherent issues, like head gasket failure, water pump issues, etc? Are the gearboxes strong?
I am assuming that one must be incredibly thorough when inspecting a car in SA as there is no annual inspection for road worthiness??
