    Default What would you do

    The vec is gonna be put up for sale soon as I want a turbo but before I sell I wanted to get the chain done for peace of mind but my mates think I'm mad spending that much on summit that's going so what would you do.

    Sell it as is but stress the chain fact

    Or

    Get the chain done along with a service for peace of mind

    does it sound "bad" or a slight rattle ?
    if your gona replace it, then find out the price in total and add a little on top of car sale to cover it...

    There ain't a rattle but it's on 56 thousand now so it's gotta be due. Was gonna sell it for about 3.5k as it stands and adding the chain cost on will probably make it too expensive so was just gonna do it for my peace of mind.

    sell it on as it is, its down to the new owner to check service due date and if the chains not due for say, another thousand miles ,let them sort it..


    We all love a bargain when BUYING,
    and want as MUCH as we can when selling...

    i know how ya feel as ya dont wanna spend any extra money on a car before selling as its dead money esentially but ya still want the car right and not be thinking something will go wrong after sale and be hit with a grumpy buyer looking for money back or even worse a solicitors letter. its a catch 22 situation. my opinion is if its gone over its replacement date then its your duty to replace it but if not well then its up to new owner to do it. then again you know yourself a lot of people look to see when timing was done when buying a car and a newly replaced one is always a bonus to a prospective new buyer

    That's what I thought about the putting down chain been done. Reckon I stand more chance of getting the asking price.

    When is the chain due on a 2.2 vectra

    Vehicle : Vectra c SRI Facelift

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2006

    Default

    At the moment im currently looking to buy a Vectra and have looked at hundreds of ads and theres 2 things i look for straight away and thats the milage and if the timing belt/chain and water pump have been done,if theres no mention of it and the milage is around the change time then ill move onto the next.All the cars that i have saved had all recently had the cambelt/chain and water pump done and they all sold within 3 days of the advert going live...some of which were well overpriced for the spec!

    Theres so many cars out there being sold around the time of the cambelt/chain so yours would just be one of hundreds if not thousands,if you do get it done then im pretty sure ull sell it within a few days and for a good price aswell.

    Dont forget karma will pay you back tenfold if your honest lol

    Goodluck with the sale mate
