I need a decent family daily driver. At around £1000 give or take a few hundred..

That it on price? fml, well cheap!

I'd go through the normal motions, engine, lights (dash too), if clear pipes on the fule lines check for bubbles, suspension, bushes, steering play.

For that price I wouldn't expect it to be a minter so possibly expect a few hundred quid in bushes and a service.

I know my cheap ass donkey cars Wink last 5 except pulsar <300 and all still alive + sold for more than I paid Smile

I didnt realise the car was in 200.000 miles so decided not to go and view it. As no doubt i will be paying out on parts as mentioned above.
I txtd the seller because i had phoned him up and said i would call back later to arange a viewing.
I should of just not bothered and kept him hanging on!
Rather than saying okay to my text he had to have a dig!!

200,000 only just run in then. My mate had an 05 passat estate 1.9tdi that was on 350,000 and still pulled well. Diesels as long as the oil and filter was changed regularly should do 200,000+ no problem.

Its not the engine that concerns me. Its the serviceable parts.
My golf has done 149k and all the bushes have had to be changed and now the clutch is needing to be done.
I dont fancy selling a car that needs mo ey spent on it. To buy another one that will no doubt need money spent on it sooner rather than later.

Depends how it been used , if mainly motorway it could still be very fit, would imagine suspension & steering could be quite solid as just mot'd.
Honda bit of a pita on parts & diesel system is expensive when faulty.
I would never bother with diesel unless doing serious mileage to make big saving .

True. Its a bag of shire tho. When it rains the foot wells fill up lol
The clutch is a dual mass??? Or something like that?
The radiator has sprung a leak and so has the oil cooler radiator.
And the passenger side wishbone needs replacing.

Dual mass flywheels are not that bad to do ive done quite a few solid disc conversions as dual mass flywheels can be problematic .... although it sounds like you golf is set to meet its maker .... lol ....

Yeh water leaks can be a nightmare to resolve.
I had one in footwell of my old mazda 323, took ages to find it, fix it & get right weather to test as hose did not produce leak
R's are quite good daily & fun, easy on park space too which huge bonus.
German stuff is well over rated really .

Was walking about from the Chinease a bit ago and a arse in his Aston Martin came creaping over a speed bump as I was walking down the street and then floored it right next to me I think I may have had a semi from the sound of the V8 although it did shit me up! Nearly threw my chicken balls on the floor lol.

Subtle is the way forward. Dont even have a dump valve now
