Slightly Nervous!!

Hello there everyone

I have to admit i lied ever so slightly about the car i drive, its really the car i want to drive and am hopefully buying one at the weekend. It is a 1997 metallic black 2.0 gtv lusso with 60k on the clock. I have done a bit of research and know to scrutinise the service history and check when the cam belt was (if) changed, is there anything else i should keep an eye out for?? rust in certain areas? any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Welcome to AO... yep, your going down the right line...a good service history, look for cambelt/tensioner/bearing changes around the 36k mark..check that a good quality oil has been used, selenia if possible..
Air con blowing nice and cold

AO are a friendly bunch who are more than willing to help you out whenever you need it

best of luck
