Major service done 8 months ago by Paul Vassalo, all fluids changed etc.
Previous major services done by PQ Automotive.
Generally whatever broke mechanically got fixed.
Will be serviced next week by PaulV, inc. aircon service.
Whats not so good:
Engine leaks oil. Has piston noises when cold. Starter motor does
the click clicks every so often - a relay would cure it.
power steering has slow leak, top up only at oil change time.
Gearbox leaks oil at worn selector shafts holes in upper housing.
Has the usual gears spinning noises at idle with clutch out.
Paint only fair but responds well to polish
blemishes from previous repairs, esp bonnet.
numerous small dings in doors from parking lots
front ring hard guard damaged near headlight
rear left guard dinged - both of these car parking lot damage.
stitching in driver's seat redone.
rear carpet damaged on tunnel.
Rear window washer doesn't work, wiper does work.
Spare wheel is steel, not alloy.
This has been our family car for 15 years, and it's been everywhere.
A good percentage of the miles have been long trips, Tasmania & Daintree through
the NT, Adelaide. Been to Lismore so many times I've lost count. It's
being sold now as the family has grown up and we don't need it anymore,
I now have a C5 as the 'good' car. The proceeds from this will go towards
probably a good BX 16V. It's worth investing the cash
to fix whats wrong with it now. It isn't worth it for me to do it now
unless I want to keep it for a few years.
Realistically it will need engine work in the next 60-70000Kms. PaulV
thinks the piston noise is probably a stuck ring - but doesnt think
it is serious as it goes away completely within 5 minutes from cold.
Its not the car for someone wanting concourse condition. It would be a good
buy for someone willing to do the mechanical work and isn't too fussed
about paint condition. I've seen a few of these with 270000Km+ and I don't
think they drive any better than this one, and they were $6000+.
