Re: Buying advice needed: 147 JTD 16V
My advice would be, when you arrange to visit one, arrange first thing in the morning, and insist the car hasn't be run before you get there, that way, when you test drive it, you can look for all the cold problems, i.e. type of things that seem to go away once you drive a couple miles.
Stick you hand deep into the engine, if's it's slightly warm, the sellers telling fibs and wants to hide something..
Blue smoke at startup, VDC Warning Messages, Creaking suspension, Creaking Engine Mounts. etc..
Just my 2p's for all it's worth.
