Wife's car, had it 5 years, it's been brilliant and part of the family
Does anyone with spanners want to save it, then enjoy The Multipla Experience?
Spent plenty recently and because of that she's gone out and bought a Honda FR-V instead rather than spend on it again after the current upset. Was going to throw it on ebay to recoup a few quid from those just wanting to break it, but does anyone with spanners want to save it instead?
It had a clutch five years back at 110k, now on 160k but the clutch hydraulics stopped overnight. I though it was just the cable as first and third suddenly became stiffer to slot in, but something more terminal happened a few says later as she was stuck on the roadside with it. Clutch has never slipped. Recovered by RAC to a garage in Bedfordshire, so currently a crash gearbox special sitting forlorn in their car park. The 'box has to come off' they say, booked at Â£500, so she hit roof and I hid.
Recent bills for: Â£220 earlier this month on coil spring and top bush (a Â£60 bush!), pair tyres Â£150 inc tracking last month, last year all front arms and links, previously alternator, battery, aircon rad, etc as it was a daily and quite liked (for once).
E/W all round
Aircon that works
Interior seats still good but some dash plastics gone sticky and tatty in places.
My PM box is still broken on this board, so just say what you want below if anything and I'll find another way if any interest
