buying a GTV V6 have 2 questions
hi, I went to see a GTV 3.0 V6 on saturday.
car seemed pretty solid. (nice body work, engine seems well maintained)
2 things though
1) is the clutch pedal usually very heavy on the 3.0 V6. Compared to my 2.0 TS the pedal is about twice as hard to push (its actually kind of nice). The gear change was smooth it just took me by surpise how heavy the pedal is. Is this normal? Can it be adjusted?
2) the battery was flat and the car didnt start... Seller said he hadnt used it for over a week. We jump started it took it for a spin and it started up fine after that. So alternator must be solid. Suspect it just a battery past its shelf live. But is this a commen problem. Does the 3.0 V6 use more battery power than the 2.0 TS (assume it does). How long should you be able to leave the car without using it before the battery is dead (with car alarm on).
