not worth a dime

well you've already paid for it..... so does it really matter? it kinda the question you ask before paying IMO
#3
Parkers.co.uk is the place to go for car valuations - you've got ALOT less miles than average and I'm guessing the elderly person had it serviced as and when it was needed, by a dealer. Even so, looks like you paid over the odds, especially with no tax!

I have to disagree...... theres a lot of depeciation over that 72k, however it will certainly need a good run in on the motorway.

So you didn't buy it but you were the highest bidder?

Need to sort out the question you should be asking.
#10
Thanking you all for the response next bid only after consulting you all :thinking::p

Fugly car.


totally, but just about the cheapest thing you can drive in terms of insurance, tax, petrol and servicing. Not pretty, but very very friendly on the wallet.

I can never understand why people think low miles is good?! It means...

1) The car is awful to drive and only driven as a last resort
2) The car has stood for a long time - either disused or being extensively repaired
3) The car has been used by an old lady to do her shopping 2 miles down the road and back once a week

The problem you have is that lack of use is the worst thing you can do to a car, after crashing it. It will be all rusty & seized. Contrary to the opinion expressed above, old people that do few miles are LESS likely to have had it serviced. Service in tervals are 12 months or 10,000 miles usually, whichever is SOONER. But I bet that car has 1 stamp in it's book.

If you must get a 9 year old small car, get one that's done 90,000 miles, with all it's service history.

Hi
If its the gold one on ebay that finished for 1020.00 then you had a lucky escape! The colour is gross and he says was only driven by his grandad to the shops but has a baby on board sign in the rear window?
And to OfnPanad some people can only afford 9 year old cars - we are not all rolling in cash. What's the point in buying a brand new car when as soon as you drive it off the forecourt you have lost up to 2000 off of its value?

Its swings and roundabouts though, all engines wear with use and (excluding perishables) a car thats done 18k in 10 years is going to have more life in it than a car thats done 90k, especially when you're talking about a tiny japanese 1.0. Its not just the engine that'll be in better condition either, suspension with only 18k miles of use vs 90k miles use? the interior?

Fuel pipes will be corroded, fuel tank will have rust in the top, suspension will be stiff, brake discs will be brittle, as will the clutch plate. Bearings will be worn from standing in one place so long. Rust will be well & truly established in the undercarriage (unless it's been kept garaged). Perhaps the car will look ok, but it's only cosmetics. The oil will be like tar and will be killing the engine from the inside. A 1.0 litre jap engine will go to 200,000 miles easy IF PROPERLY SERVICED...but not if "misused" like this! (2k a year and 1 service in 9 years, I'm guessing)
