    Default Oh I Give Up With People

    Why doesn't anyone listen these days?

    I've seen a link for a car for sale @ 332k, bidding is at £1700 so far, no matter what ppl say this car is finished, it's done it's time and will cost a fortune to keep going, the steering will be tired, the suspension will be tired, the electrics etc etc and so on, then there's the extended warranty route, we all know they are a con unless they are endorsed by the manufacturer, but no still ppl want to part with hundreds for a bit of paper that come claim time will have a wiggle clause, and finally the old fuel consumption turkey, some state amazing figures, so amazing they are as much as 50% more than the manufacturers official figures, if these cars did those sort of figures the companies would crow about it wouldn't they?

    You try to tell ppl not to bother, but they don't listen, would you buy a 300k mile car for 1.7k?

    He's saying that he's seen a car with 332,000 miles on the clock being advertised (I'm guessing ebay?) and people are already bidding at £1700 for it.

    i agree, its one thing saying cars nowadays will last longer and are capable of doing high miles but thats way ott, 332k is heading for trouble, but like you say, its ok cause it comes with that fab warranty!!! Bet the poor git has a repair bill within a week!!!

    Yeah, I know the engines can do the miles, it's the rest of it, nothing lasts forever, and I bet you won't get rid of until you feel there's a big bill just around the corner eh?

    Why bother yourself about it ? If someone is happy with a car like that and know the risks of repairs it's up to them.
