When this customer was purchasing this vehicle three or four months ago, I told her that if you buy cheap you end up buying twice.
What I actually meant was that paying £500 for a car will not guarantee you will get a good vehicle.
I wasn’t surprised to see the car come in to the workshop as it suffered from a loss of gears. Upon starting the work, we spotted that the gearbox was cracked and the radiator was leaning against the gearbox. Also, the coolant bottom hose was in danger of chafing through.
Luckily for the customer the crack did not affect the job and we were able to straighten a few things out while the gearbox was off.
