I am a very proud owner of my first car a 147
, and have had my car for 3 months.
However, I seem to have had a run of problems : 3 lights out, front upper 'triangles' (the bit that secures the chassis to the wheel) completely gone, 4 new tyres.
When the garage fixed the upper triangle today, they said there are some other problems with the car:
Motor pre-heater no longer working (the light does come on when i start the car) €350
Fuel pump leaking €1450
Lower triangle (left and right) severely worn. €370
As I only bought this car 3 months ago, does anyone know how I could check myself whether these things need doing? I am not sure I want to just blindly accept their opinion. More than happy to get my hands dirty myself, I just don't really know where to start.
If its the case, i am not sure, (having forked out €700 today and €430 last week) whether I will be able to keep the car.
Thanks for all of your help!
