Unhappy Just a moan really!

How many more problems can I have with my Multi!?!?

I bought it in April and posted then about a few problems well sine then we had replaced the ball joints, had the emissions sorted for the mot, had the windscreen replaced, had a new windscreen washer pump, a new abs sensor, a new rear wheel hub and a few other things I cant remember but all that has cost over 500

And now the clutch or gear box has gone, the garage are leaning towards the clutch but wont know until they take it apart at a cost of 138. Our power steering pump is also worn so doesnt work when braking or when you actually need it but this problem kepps getting put to the back of the queue.

So I have had the car for nearly 4 months now and its been on the road for about 6 weeks

How much more money do I put into it and how much more can go wrong. I still love the car though and have started a bit of a trend in my village as theres now anoth 4 of them about. Do I sell and get rid (and prob buy another Multi ) or do I risk it and keep it hoping it will be ok for a while now???

Oh and it has done 230,000 miles Has anyone else got one with this many miles on it?

That is a lot of miles !!!

I personally would find it hard to keep the car with this mileage.

230k miles!!!
Kin ell.
Just chop it in for something that has done, say, 150k less!

Still cheap motoring, anyway. The car doesn't depreciate anymore, presumably, so you're saving a ton of wedge next to most....

Re: Just a moan really!

your car has been to the moon and back - no wonder wear and tear items are needing to be replaced
