I have just made a late night Ebay purchase, so the little Charade has to go. Mrs Cade bought a Fiat 500L, so I bought her wee red Daihatsu for running round the site. It's a little smoll for the dug, my tools and I really need a towbar so I'm moving it on. The 9-5 Aero is staying....
2004- Reg is DV04YLC. Charade 5 door SL,- yep, the Luxury one. £30 a year road tax. Insurance was £200 FC with no- no claims, it does well over 50 MPG and even says "Hello HaPPy" when you start it up
Being an SL, it has central locking, electric mirrors, JVC mechless stereo with USB, electric windows and freezing cold AIR CON. It's never asked anything since we've had it, apart from some new tyres. The original alloys were really tatty and the centre caps were missing, so I got 4 Kia Picanto wheels and trimz and put them on. You can have the alloys if you want too. It is really tiny, but surprisingly good on the motorway- 85 is easily possible as a cruise, and it sounds great being a triple. 2 keys, original handbook and wallet and some old reciepts and mot's.
The cambelt kit was changed October 2017 and an exhaust in September 2017. MOT is 20th July.
The EML is on- code is for a Lambda sensor. It's been running around the campsite for a few months so needs a good blast, Lambda sensor is £20 off Ebay
Front bumper has been touched up- paint was peeling off so it was sanded and brushed in.
Washer bottle is cracked at the top. Holds some water and the washers work fine- rear one doesn't.
That's about it- it's a mega cheap to run, fun wee car that surprised me how good it is at being an car.
I gave £400 for it, and would like this back if poss.
Don't have any pics at the mo, apart from this one parked behind the Saab. Will try and get some more tomorrow, but it needs a good hoover because Bassett.
