Its happened, I've been persuaded to part with my car in favour of a mondeo
"sensible family car" and all that!
Unfortunately my poor little car needs too much work doing to her for it to be viable for me to be able to keep her as well.
I'm looking for some advice really, I have no idea how much I should be asking for it, or where I should be advertising. I really dont want to see her go to someone who wont appreciate the gutsy little car she is! But I dont want to rip anyone off with her needing so much attention!
She's a 2004, 5 dr, 2.0 JTD M-jet Lusso. 81000 miles, I've had her for 8 months and paid £3k.
I've just had the cam belt repaired and the water pump replaced, at Autolusso, the following is the list Ned gave me of other problems.....
Clutch, heavy and high, Intake hose split- air not being filtered, Wipers not clearing screen, Front Discs worn, Front tyres worn on inner edge, ARB drop link noisy, Lower arms have play in ball joints, exhaust rubbers perished. Alos appearing on the MOT - rear coil springs corroded.
So clearly, its not going to be a cheap task getting her back to her best.
Now after publicly massacring my lovely car (!) any advice on asking price, or indeed does anyone want her?!
I wont be offended if the general consensus is to cut my losses and scrap her, although I'll be devastated to do it!
Any help would be very welcome, Thanks
