Feeling comfortable? Good.
Welcome to an introduction to CBT (Car Buying Tommorow).
In this workshop we will explore why I am buying a car tomorrow and talk about how this makes our undercroft feel. We will also look at techniques that may help us all NOT buy a car tomorrow.
Section 1) how do you feel?
I bought this as a stopgap, its purpose has been filled, and now I need something more economical.
Its a 2000 Mazda 323F, with a 1.8 petrol engine and auto box (4 speed with lock out in top). Its in decent enough condition, looks tidy, starts, runs and drives with no major issues, decent amount of poke when needed. MoT is till November. Interior is very tidy and shows little wear. Leccy windows, mirrors, sunroof which all work, AC which does not. The downsides are there are 3 small chips in the windscreen, all less than 10mm. And it could do with a tyre changing on the front as its cracked with age.
More photos when its stops raining. Oh, and economy-wise it averages around 33mpg with mixed driving, more on a long run.
Looking for £300 for a sale, or prepared to roffle at £5 if theres enough interest, could do with shifting it relatively quickly though. I'm also up for swaps, preferably for something small, petrol and manual. Small Peugeots are a preference.
Oh, and its in Lincoln. Sorry.
Something amazing has come up, so this being the sensible economical family car I'm moving it on. If it doesn't go quick I'll more the 205 on instead once it's tested, which would make much more sense as I like it a lot.
Pretty economical; guessing very high thirties or low 40s.
Peugeot ride quality
Soft comfortable seats
Needs a new side repeater lens (£15 on eBay)
Could do with new tyres on the front as they're worn Chinese ditchfinders
Bottoms of the doors are scruffy.
Passenger window needs help to go back up.
Located in Durham, delivery available at cost.
Aye, it's this fucking thing again.
