Have been zipping over the country looking at low mileage models.
Our one has 215k miles on it, the clutch has been in for 143k miles and is giving no problems whatsoever. If it had been auto then it would have soldiered on. However, Yve will not drive it far because of the weight of the clutch.
Amazingly, the old girl has less rattles, in fact is extremely quite, so much so that in one or two cases the newer lower mileage cars had far more.
She has been absolutely superb (he says with his fingers crossed as she will be in use until April).
"Don't think of them as problems, think of them as opportunities."
"OK, I think I've hit an insurmountable opportunity!"
