Re: 164 Running Costs
I should like to second the above advice. Only buy your 164 if you
are able to maintain it yourself. The cost of replacing the cam belt is about the value of the car.
A 164TS would be a much more economical proposition. Even then, check for a failing gearbox input bearing, front suspension bushes and bearings, steering rack, that the tyres are wearing evenly, hand brake operation and that all of the instument panel warning lights operate and extinguish when the ignition is switched on..
