147 Timing belt snapped
I wonder if anyone can help. My 52 plate 147 1.6 TS broke down yesterday whilst my wife was driving, she was going about 70 on the motor way and lost all power including steering, and the Enigine management Failure message came up on the dash. She managed to coast to a layby.
I Called the RAC and he took one look and said the timing belt had gone then kindly towed her home.
My problem is this.. is it worth repairing the engine or just try and trade it in? How much would the repair cost? how much the car be worth without repair?
Would anyone on this site know of anyone wanting to buy a poorly 147? It is in good nick with the Lusso spec and light tan interior.. I love the car and dont want to scrap it, but dont think I can afford the repairs!!
Any advice is greatly recieved
