    Vehicle : vectra

    Trim : sri

    Engine : 2.2

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 64000

    Default Bought another vauxhall tonight

    As the title says bought another car tonight went to have a look at a corsa c 1.2 sxi with 46k on the clock 12 months mot 6 months tax but on the down side its a cat c, which was due to the rear axel needing to be replaced due to someone loosing control of it and kirbing the alloy wheel and bent the rear axel.
    Had a good look round it took it for a test drive and everything was sweet as a nut but was unsure weather to buy it or not due to it being cat c but after talking to a friend and telling him that ive tralled ebay and the auto trader all weekend to find a good one at a good price he said go for it.
    the guy wanted £1750 and got him down to £1500 as all the others ive seen were sky high with mileage or they want silly money for them so all in all think i did well what do you guys think????

    Depends how long you want to keep it for. The re-sale value will be less with it being a cat c.

    Take pictures before you repair it so the next owner can see what was wrong with it.

    Would tend to agree I think. As long as it is otherwise sound, I would just enjoy it for what it is though, no point worrying about it now.
