I'm not expecting a rush of interest in this, but here goes anyway
I've owned this Almera for just over 8 years, taking the mileage from around 40k to its current 172k, during this time it has been brilliantly reliable, always started and never failed to complete a journey.
Unfortunately although it runs well with no nasty noises, it burns a lot of oil, especially just after start up when it has sat for a few hours, possibly valve stem seals, it does smoke a bit the rest of the time but nothing like as much.
Was in daily use for a 20 mile each way daily commute until early November when I got another car, and it drives OK, obviously it's an old, well worn car with a lot of miles but I would always trust it to get me where I'm going. Tyres are matching Continentals all round, alloys have marks. It is on its original clutch so pedal is a bit high but it doesn't slip. Front crossmember replaced for 2012 MoT, weak point on these.
It's pretty tidy overall, there are stonechips, scratches etc as you'd expect, the worst being a small dent on the tailgate and a scrape by the fuel filler, but it's quite presentable. Photos make the bonnet look a different colour to the rest of the car but it isn't. CD player works when it feels like it
Good points - reliable, runs OK, recently re-gassed air-con (ideal for this time of year!), rear brake discs and calipers replaced within last year or so, as was part of the exhaust, centre box I think.
It's in Billericay, Essex, CM12
Mr Bump not included in the sale, sorry!
We like pictures (maybe not of Almeras though) so here you go:
