As above it has F on the dash so the customer not wanting to spend anymore on the car gave it to me along with the V5. V reg A190 with full leather.

Most are, shocking things. Pitched to compete with the Ford Focuses of this world, generally give a most un-Focuslike bill at regular intervals.

Not sure whether to say congratulations, or commeserations Jib.

Sorry, but I do feel for the poor sods like Jib's customer who thought it would be a run of the mill car to run, but it turns into a money pit. My view is that if the proverbial Ford Focus had problems of this magnitude, Ford would be broke (oh it is, but you know what I mean).

To be fair, i have seen the odd A,class with over 150000 miles and never had a prob,

Its the same with all cars, some are good and some are very bad!!

People are still payng good money for them, what does that tell you!!

I know someone who bought a secondhand A class recently - an older one - on a T plate I think. She had never had a MB or any other quality German car before - as far as she was concerned she was buying into a luxury small car with luxury car status and reliability. Of course I could not say anything - but I think that is why they still sell - the buyers just dont know the truth until it is too late.

I bought one for my other half a month or two ago, she had it a week and smashed it up, i wasn't worried about the car, it turned out to have lots wrong, which i corrected straight away! theres a thread on here somewhere about it!

There not as bad as people think, it like all cars, you get a good one and you get a bad one!!

Either way it might get parted out for spares.....

I am right in thinking the semi auto box is just a manual with bits added? if so I know a man with a semi auto box.
