    Default 3.2V6 Signum buying advice

    I didn't have much luck finding someone local to Wigan, so I guess I'll have to drive the 3 hours or so up there to check out the 3.2V6 Signum Elite I've seen advertised. Had a quick chat with the trader and he gave me a very good p/x on my Espace, so pending an inspection I may become a proper member this weekend

    Now to my questions. What should I be specifically check for with these? It comes with FVSH and has done only 50K miles in the past 4 years. Is it time for a cambelt change yet? Servicing is every 10K right, so if it's done 4 services (minor-major-minor-major) then the next one should be minor again, right? I'm just trying to ascertain if I am likely to face a big garage bill in the next 6 months or so...

    Anything else I should be aware off?

    Thanks!

    I'm sure GSI3.2 will be able to guide you as he's had lots of experience with them.

    Mark? Any guidance?

    Make Sure When You Take It For A Run You Can Go On The Motorway, Cos It Is Magic, But Watch Out For The Boys In Blue.
    You Will Probably Only Get 23 Mph And Maybe 30-32 0n A Decent Run. I Have Had Mine (04 Plate 35000mls Now) For 6 Months And So Far No Problems. Enjoy

    I'd say get them to change the cambelt as part of the deal. They will tell you its not due but there have been a couple of peeps who changed at 60K to be told the belt was fubared and they were very lucky. Keep on the safe side.

    Servicing is 20k/one year on the eco, or 20k/two years on the eco flex. But once a year or 10k would see it last a long time. The 3.2V6 is a very good engine
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    It seems to be the general rule on here that the cambelt "should" be done at 40-50K.

    Cheers guys, I'll be asking about that then (or use it for bartering). Anything I should be on the look out with regards to electrics? It's got more buttons than a space shuttle, so I probably forget a few.
