Help Buying 156
Hi - I'm looking for advice buying a 156. I think I'm in the right place...?
I took two for a test drive yesterday, a 2004 JTD and a slightly older petrol one.
Both seemed to have very soft brakes - they required a lot of pressure to make the vehicle stop. Is this a common feature, or have I just found two bad examples?
(I drive a Seicento at the moment, so that's my 'reference').
Also, while I was driving the JTD, I took the revs quite high and the 'engine control system failure' message appeared with the orange light. There didn't appear to be any loss in power and the owner didn't seem too concerned (but did come down on price!)
Having had a quick look through the forum, there's obviously no way to know for sure what this error means without plugging in the cable and reading the full code. But I was wondering if anyone had a 'top 10' possible reasons? I.e. what are the chances that this is an expensive problem?
