Hi - My name is ***** ***** I will try and assist you today.

I would be cautious buying a vehicle with the occasionally engine light coming on no matter what the seller says.

Please can you kindly answer all or some of these questions so that I can have a clearer idea of how to advice you ?

- Did you drive the vehicle yourself and see the light come on occasionally ?

- What is the mileage of the vehicle ?

- What is the seller asking for the vehicle price wise?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
NO IHAVE NOT DRIVEN CAR OR SEEN LIGHT COME ON THE MILEAGE IS 180K. PRICE £3.500.

IM geusing the old saying is trueif it looks to good to be true it probabaly is i'll leave that car thank you for your thoughts.

You are more than welcome.

I would pass on the vehicle. I too have been in those situations and you have to just go with your gut. I wouldn't by a vehicle like that with 180K on it. You could get a bargain but I could guarantee that you would make up for it finding that fault and why take the gamble ?

I hope in the long term that this advice saves you some money at the end of the day:)

Please be so kind as to rate my reply as we do not get paid for unrated answers.

I wish you all the best looking for 'the one.

All the best

Philip
