Default But a cautionary note . . .

This is a great idea to help fellow members but may I sound a cautionary note . . .

My V6 looked superb from the top and carried a recent 100% clear MOT but on getting on a ramp it was obvious it should never have passed. I've just paid the bill for a smidgeon under £1K to make it safe and roadworthy. I've run a Tourer for the past 5 years so know my way reasonably around the model but unless I could see it on a ramp I would not want to give any opinion as to its merit.

Sorry about that. (Next time it's going to be an RAC inspection.)

If I was checking a potential purchase for a club member the first thing Iíd check is the underneath. As you rightly point out a shiny body means absolutely nothing, seen it too many times on Facebook, Iím shocked at the condition of some supposedly well cared for cars. The old saying ďall that glistens is not goldĒ
Thank you for sharing your experience and hopefully itíll serve others in their future purchases

Anyone near Radstock could have a look at a 75 for me.

Rewarded with beer tokens.
