HA! I actually went and test drove this car... The dealer told me it was immaculate so off I went on a 200 mile round trip and low and behold.....complete dog! Interior is a mess, trim missing here, fag burns there, leather tatty. Was told he had service history including recent cambelt but when I was there and asked to see it he started telling some story about previous owner or some b@ll@x!
I wanted to get in my car and go but thought i`d drive it while I was there. That was a waste of time. After he`d jump started it! Off we went.... first thing I noticed was it had no go in it at all, no responce even with foot to the floor just a slow gentle acceleration. It felt like the accelerator peddle didn`t have enough travel but I checked there was no mat in the way and the stopper thing look ok. Also both window were poorly align causing hurrendeous wind noise.
Bodywork was pretty clean though!
I nearly laughed my head off when the dealer asked, in a surprised way, what it was that I didn`t like about it?
Another part of the story I got was that he has had it for a year. Reason being he sold it to a bloke in italy who gave him a £500 deposit who subsequently vanished....
I was a bit sad to see the car looking so neglected to be honest but more angry at being lied to, especially as I said I had a long journey.
Nevermind, got a nice one in the end
