So three weeks ago I viewed and bought an R19.
Three weeks later I haven't really gelled with it and the new car thing has worn off. I dunno. Maybe being used to a BX made this a difficult move. Anyway, the BX will be going back into daily use ASAP (as in when my parking permit arrives for the R19 and I can then transfer it back), and this has to go as I am eyeing up something else.
1995 M reg Renault 19 RTi (High spec) with just over 50k on the clock.
Last serviced March 2016.
MOT until May 2017, other than a bit of rust around the OS rear arch I can't see any issues with it passing another one.
Cambelt history unknown, hence low price. If you're more mechanically adept than myself, you can probably do it yourself.
Good on fuel, geared for town driving seemingly, although holds its own on a motorway.
4 decent tyres.
Very tidy interior other than a few issues noted below
All electrics work shocker, so powered mirrors, heated mirrors, sunroof, windows, decent headlights etc.
Central locking is a pain in the arse, basically the circuit has broken so unlocking the drivers door only brings with it the opposite side rear passenger door, and that's the same if you unlock it from the passenger side.
Seems to judder when idling, which I think is a dodgy engine mount.
Some dings, but nothing huge.
Drivers side rear arch is a bit rusty, but it won't need the whole thing replacing. I think it got swiped by something in the past.
ONE missing wheel trim.
Elbow rest on drivers door somehow cracked inwards, but the material is okay, so it just dips a little.
I'd have kept it but the insurance is Â£40 a month more and it just doesn't float my boat.
Located in Reading, Berkshire. Local pickup available.
