Do I pay out or cash in?
I am debating whether to pay out to have my Alfa sorted or part-exchange/sell. Is it worth spending this money on? What money should I be getting for it by selling or part-exchanging?
2004 (53 plate) 156 JTD 16v Multijet Veloce - Black, tan leather, 17" alloys, 63,000 miles, recently passed MOT.
The cambelt has already been replaced.
The situation now is that there is a few issues that need looking at which I believe will add up to a fairly substantial cost (around £1,500 - 2,000 apparently).
Air con isn't working. This isn't just a case of re-gassing. Can't remember the exact issue off the top of my head but it was a few hundred quid job.
Intermittant wiper is not working. It only works on the constant full speed. New steering column?
The radiator needs replacing imminently.
There is an oil leak somewhere, it doesn't seem to be losing much oil but don't know the cost of fixing.
VDC light comes on after about 10 minutes of all journeys.
2 tyres will need replacing soon.
If part-exchanging I could claim ignorance on the radiator and oil leak and could suggest that the air-con may just need re-gassing. I'm not too comfortable about doing that if selling privately.
Your thoughts would be much appreciated.
