Hpi report through Mitsubishi Exeter – clear.

Genuine 62k miles

Brand new MOT, the advisory was the loose handbrake cable so it was changed along

with a front caliper (handbrake is on the front wheels), now very tight and strong.

5 months tax

Interior – excellent (but digital clock is dim. )

Exterior – very good (just very minor age related dings, no rust anywhere)

I use it as my daily commuter for a 20 mile round trip to and from work, regular

trips to Cornwall and Worcester and hasn’t missed a beat in the 2+ thousand miles I’ve covered,

and to my calculations has returned me about 35 -37mpg on a mix of mid length/town driving.

Gear changes are smooth, engine is strong, hasn’t used any oil and doesn’t smoke/over heat at all.

Suspension rises as soon as the engine is switched on and works completely as it should.

There are no knocks and steering is very tight. I, and I’m pretty certain none of the previous

owners have ever driven it hard – it’s not that kind of car. It also idles perfectly.

All work carried out by Mike Swallow garage (Pugeot Citroen specialist) in

Marsh Barton, Exeter. I’ve used him for years and there is nothing he doesn’t know about these motors.

It was his vehicle before the history started, and can tell you its history from new.

It’s had an easy life. Mike inherited the car from its first lady owner.

He bought it with a misfire and suspect head gasket faliure, so it was all replaced.

It wasn’t the head gasket at all in the end, it was some small £2 heat sink on the spark circuit

that needed replacing – so the car effectively has a new head gasket!

I’ve been as honest as I can about this car, it’s a cracker and although its almost 20 years old it has a long life ahead of it still.

It’s not a money pit, you can use it everyday without worry, it’s a real head turner, you will be let out of junctions much easier

than you expect and the novelty of up and down suspension never wears off. Will be very sad to see it go but I now have a dog and a very sensible estate as he needs a cage.
