    Default S16 for $6000

    Hi all, Im thinking of buying a '94 S16 with around 147k from a 2nd hand dealer at wholesale. Was just wondering if anyone here or if anyone knows who owned a silver S16 with a red pinstripe down the side that appears to have started life in WA and recently sold it in QLD.

    The reason I ask is that the car has no logs and appears to have been in an accident at sometime(the door and front quarter a slightly diiferent shades to the rest of the car)and I just want to find out a bit of history about the car.

    It ran pretty good and seemed to be in good nic except for the vac diaphragms didnt move, they both seemed to be open. Doing the spit on finger test there seemed to be little or no vacuum at all, but it seemed to run just fine.

    Was just wondering if anyone can shed some light on this car or would know of a way I could find out. I have a rego number if this helps

    Thanks
    Damon

    If it rattles at 3000revs, the speedo keeps cutting out, the drivers seat wobbles and it's been repainted from red then it's mine and I'd like it back.

    Just joking. I'm sure mine still parked outside the house feeling unloved !!!!!

    Good luck finding it's history

    you could always ask the dealer, some can be honest people...

    or take it to a peugeot specialist and ask them if they can tell you whats been done to the car by way of body work, resprays, etc. etc.

    also lots of mechanics put stickers on the cars they service, have a look on all the windows etc.

    sounds like a ghost car

    s16s are very nice cars though so i hope u can get ur hands on it

    no stickers, no nothing. For the money is it a good buy? Needs 4 new tyres and maybe new front rotors for roadworthy.

    Then just need to find why no vacumm and the cat rattles slightly. The rest is VGC, except the clock bulbs have blown.

    that's not a bad price but when it's too good to be true...

    I dont know... I'd want to make sure I didnt have loads of repair bills after the purchase so have it checked out by a Peugeot specialist if you can. Just paying the money would be a huge gamble at the price. It could be 'hiding' some dark secrets

    Remember its getting to the age (147k) that it MUST have a timing belt replaced if it hasn't in the very near past. Pug say at 160, 000 if it had its last one on time at 80k but they aren't to be trusted (the belts). So sooner is very much better than later especially as the car has no logs of when it was actually done last. Not outrageous, but still a fair whack of money in the near future on top of what else you can see is wrong with it.

    Re the Vacum Dia's theres a thread floating round on here that will tell you how to clean/replace (I think) them if they are busted.

    With suspected accident damage, how does it drive?? not the motor so much but steering, suspension etc??

    Different paint could be just it got Keyed or a trolley incident?

    BTW I'm very jealous I'd love an S16 *thoughts wander to Brad and Chris' former cars*

    My 94 does not have a driver's side airbag..I think Peugeot dealers should be able check the vin number and locate which dealer it came from on their database. You can then check previous owners history by submitting an inquiry at the car rego branch in your state.

    IMHO If it has not had a t-belt done recently, then you would be best to get that done immediately, or it could cost you $1000 if it breaks. Also waterpump, alternator belt, tierods, control arm bushes, engine mounts etc shuld be checked for leaks or wear. Get a good Pug specialist to do a PPI on the car and it could save you a bit of repair money in the long run

    Nomad just be carefull i remember looking at an s16 sounds very familiar to the one your talking about was an ex WA car, red pin stripe no air bad, 94 model s16 had no air bag.

    Was sitting at the back of the auction yard went to start it and hole heap of smoke started comming out through the wiring, put me off straight away.

    Did see the car few months later at a dealership and the dealer denied it even came from the auction to bad for him i had the VIN and it matched.

    Mind you this is going back about 5 years ago, but does sound to familiar, if you want more information email me [email protected]

    Cheers

    P.S I think Brad is selling his s16 if its not sold yet, its in mint condition

    I'm pretty sure Brad sold his. There was a thread about it recently!

    As for the car, I'd suggest you contact Stewart at Peugeotech. They're at Northgate & specialise in Pugs. He may know the car, if it's been around Brisbane for a while. Or, you might be able to get him to give the car a decent going over. He'll let you know if there is anything wrong with it. His number is 07 3260 7500 (It's in the book, so I guess it's ok to post it here).

    If it's a dud, Stewart might know of something else going. Or, you could contact Rohan at Chevron Motors at Bowen Hills. If they don't have something suitable in stock, he too might know of something worth your while & $. He's pretty into Peugeots.

    Thanks for the help guys. I spoke to Ian at Chevron yesterday, I bought my last car from him, and he said the car was offered to him but he wouldnt touch it. The cars at Chevron have always been of pretty good standard and if they dont want it then I wouldnt touch it either.

    Just have to get back to looking....
