Hello fellow shiters, heres another one for sale from me. More life decisions have hapenned and so the truly mighty AX must begone. As the ad says, I am really not wanting to sell this cool little car, not quite sure why it IS so cool and fun to drive, as it's a measly 1.0 and pov-ish spec too, but, it jolly well is! I R GENUINLY sad to have to sell it
So it is currently SORN and has decent MOT, due 23/04/2019. Insurance was peanuts, cheapest car i've ever insured. Also comes with a FREE almost half tank of fuel
See below for the serious, straight talking advert that I haven't modified onto shite-speak, much to my own disappointment, and probably yours too. Basically, i've done some servicing and shit, and it's pretty damn tidy. A few niggles, dent in drivers door (some fool dropped something on it), small hole in rear seat base (not sure what some fool did there), small patch of rust in the usual area behind the headlamps (only fool rust i've seen on the car) and the LHS indicators come on when you press the brake pedal, this started hapenning for no apparent reason with the car sat SORN on my drive!? I'm thinking maybe brake light switch - i've checked the rear rlight cluster wires and earths, cleaned them for the hell of it even though they appeared to be good anyway.
I am regretfully selling my 1995 Citroen AX 1.0i 3dr Elation, it is regretful because I unexpectedly really like this little car! It was bought as an austerity measure as we were saving for a deposit to buy a house, however we have now bought one and need to raise some funds to help with all of the not so little fees associated with buying a house.
The previous owner did 100 miles or so a year in it! It was also kept garaged in her ownership, hence the relatively low mileage of 60 odd thousand and the good condition of the body work – I have found 3 pieces of rust, one at the base of the drivers wing and one small patch behind each headlamp (common AX rust area), all the other usual rust areas seem to be solid and clean which was one of the reasons that I bought it. It also comes with a fair amount of service history.
The exterior is in good condition with just some age-related small imperfections, the only thing of note is a dent and scrape in the driver’s door where the previous owner dropped something on it from a high shelf in their garage. The interior is in a similarly good condition, with a loose or otherwise not correctly mounted radio (complete with original code paperwork and which works very well) and a small hole in the fabric of the rear seat base being the only things of note. I have replaced the wheel trims with less than cheap universal ones, as the ones it came with were smashed and broken, the tyres on the front are good with plenty of tread and the rears do have tread but will need replacing in the next year or so.
It benefits from an Immobiliser, with a fob required to start it. This system all works well and made my insurance cheaper, which was an unexpected bonus!
I have had it for a couple of months now, but done very few miles in it and it is now SORN’d and sat on the driveway awaiting sale.
In my ownership I have:
-Changed rocker gasket, now leak free
-Cleaned and inspected all the vacuum and breather hoses
-Replaced the air filter
-Replaced the fuel filter
-Overhauled the front brakes with new discs, pads and pad fitting kit (on the driver’s side)
-Replaced leaking passenger rear light cluster
-Replaced and gapped the spark plugs
-Replaced the HT leads
-Adjusted the boot lid (was rubbing on the bumper at either corner)
It runs and drives really well, I bought it from Birmingham and it covered the almost 200 miles home without any problem at all. The idle is a little high, but now that it’s serviced and ready to go it just needs using to clear all the cobwebs away. I haven’t changed the oil, as it looks to be quite new still - new oil, filter and drain plug are included for when it needs doing.
It comes with some spares:
-New oil and filter
-New sump plug and washer
-Cracked passengers’ side rear light cluster
Im not in a huge rush to sell, but could do with the funds to pay for the survey etc for the house we are buying, as usual funds are so tight they're giving us fecking pins and needles in the vital areas!
Could probably help with collection etc depending on where you is at, but would need insuring blah and taxing blah blah by the new owner. The car is in Yeovil, Somerset. Price? £675 but hit me with your offers!
