I have a lttle Polo (old one N reg), was my younget daughters 'learn to drive' car, I never sold it when she passed her test (She now has aCorsa) as it has been worth too much when others have broken down, they borrow it. My eldest daughter is always borrowing it when hers need to go in garage ,which has been quite a lot recently. the little Polo has been so useful as an extra car as insurance is only £100 fully comp for the year and low tax. My problem is her car broke down and went into garage over the week-end , as most of you know she is a singer and borrowed my little polo while hers was being fixed, its only 1100 cc but she drives it like its a sports car, anyway main thing is she is safe. We have had it towed 30 miles last night to my local garage and they said it would be about £200 plus the cost of a new engine (another £200). New tyres on it just passed mot and bodywork is excelptional so what do I do. Any advise PLEASE
Sorry to ramble Im so confussed, wanted to know if anyone knew if you could get reconditioned engines for this age car as my garage saif I would have to have a scrap engine but Im taking a chance with a scrap engine!
