This is my new car, new for me anyway…
Lady I bought it off is a teacher, and just bought herself a Mercedes.
She had taken it up to Karinjini and also lived in Lesmurdie, with a dirt trail driveway, so I have spend the morning cleaning it.
It has done 70,000 K’s and after negotiation cost us $19 grand. Pretty happy with that to be honest. After years of driving a Automatic 1.6l Vitara, I was determined that I would get something with a decent sized motor, and not an automatic. The old one was a good car, but limited. We used to tow a trailer down to Bremer Bay, and it made it okay, but struggled with hills and heat. I don’t think this one will even notice the trailer on the back to be honest.
Good condition, motor and clutch are good. Needs one new tyre, which does not sound a lot, except she had spent money on it, and it has the best tyres you can get for this model, Coopers, and one is going to set me back $280. But it has a good Haymen Rheese Towbar so there is nothing else to spend on it.
It goes like a scalded cat…plenty of power, and the air conditioning is fantastic.
Best car I have ever owned, and am looking forward to years of family vacations and fun in it.
