URGENT Buying Advice

Hi all,

looking for you expert advice:

I am looking at a 2011 punts evo abarth with a factory fitted essesse package, 20,000miles but it has 5 previous owners. The seller is offering a great price and it is truly immaculate but I was wondering if it is too much of a risk in terms of resale value and potential mechanical problems. Saying all of this, I have had a RAC inspection carried out and they have found nothing wrong with the car it just needs a fresh pair of boots.

Is it worth taking the punt?

cheers,
Ash

5 owners in such a short time would send massive alarm bells ringing to me. That's more than 1 a year!

Re: URGENT Buying Advice

You'd be the 6th owner in under 5 years, that's terrible! Would really make me think why each owner got rid of the car so quickly?

How cheap is "a really good price"....if you don't mind me asking?
