The time has come for me to start shedding some heaps. So the first to go is this 'wonderful' KIA. Magentis 2.7 V6 auto LS. It is a top spec jobbie with one previous owner, history (alternated between KIA and Halfords!) 60.000 miles, air con (working) PAS, electric seats/windows/alarm/central locking/leather seats/parking sensors/alloy wheels.
It was in good order when I got it but I haven't loved it like I usually do so the interior in the back, while still good, is filthy with mud stains and dog hair, the front is fine. It has a scuff on the passenger side front bumper (not me) and a previous giffer repair, passenger side rear door is a slightly different shade (only visable in certain lights) and there a few chips on the rear bumper.
Most of the time it runs well, but, sometimes it will misfire and the EML flashes. Stop, turn it off and then back on and all is good once more, no idea what it is (injection I feel) as the only code that comes up is PO300 which is multiple misfires. Slight exhaust blow on one of the front flexies which makes it sound goooood! It 'may' have had a cambelt at some tme, but maybe not, there's a reciept for the belt, but not one for fitting it, so no idea, cambelt roulette is great fun! It is worst if you let it tickover in traffic when it will start to miss, a decent code reader may actually tell you whats wrong with it!
Fuel consumption is.... dire! But I only do 2 miles at a time in it from cold so 14 - 16 mpg is not out of the way? It showed 35 on the motorway on the way home from buying it. It's MOT'd until October sometime and taxed oviously. Tyres are rubbish, back are good tread but the fronts are getting low and are old.
So, what do we reckon? £400 to a shiter?
