Yep the Mazda, Apparantly the big end has gone and the piston hitting the valves and something about the oil and hydrolics, It was all gobbley gook until he said atleast 1800 to fix, in the current market, dont think the car is even worth that, thinking of scrapping and getting a <500 run around to get me to work and back till next may, when my Daughter becomes eligible for Motability.

I sold my escort gti on ebay earlier this year for 116.

It was nothing special but had 5 months T&T.

I was actually gutted that it didn't sell for more but that's what you get for starting auctions at 99p right?

My point is :-

You'll get a decent run around on ebay for less than 500 - if you're not fussy, then just go for anything that's cheap but has T&T.

You might just be surprised how long it lasts, lol.

Good luck
