How much is this punto worth?

I've got the chance to buy a 2001 y reg fiat punto ELX 1.2
Its done about 57000 miles. needs 2 new front tyres and tracked. handbreak doesnt work at all (and its nothing to do with the tension bolt) It could be doing with a wee bit of body work. Apart from that it seems ok, starts first time, headgasket is ok.

any ideas how much its worth?

Re: How much is this punto worth?

Im going to state the obvious here but, buyers market, so called credit crunch.

I couldnt give you an accurate figure but you can pick up cars like this for little money.

Take a look at Autotrader or Pistonheads, this may help.

Re: How much is this punto worth?

Hi there....I bought it lately. I like the car very much. it's stable, elegant....and safe.

What just annoys me is some sounds when i switch to the reverse gear.

Thanks,

Re: How much is this punto worth?

yep just needs 2 new tyres, hand break fixed and theres a couple of rattles 1 is the exhaust sometimes knocks, just needs moving which i can do, and the heat exchange thing on the engine is a little loose, just needs tightened. then of course i will do some styling. oh forgot 2 say, it has a sony cd player fitted with ipod connectivity etc, worth 150 in halfords.

Re: How much is this punto worth?

i bought my 2001 mk2 1.2 8v, for 1150. The steering column went soon after and it cost 300 to repair, but i think it was still worth it. other cars i was looking at were 1600ish

Re: How much is this punto worth?

ignore the fella above.
you seem to have a decent deal there pal.
the exhaust problem happens on all puntos. kwikfit tend to fix it for free if u catch them when they arent busy.
don't drive it till it's all fixed though, wouldn't want to further any of the engine problems u mentioned.
