My new Dacia
« on: 25 September 2014, 00:13 »
A white one with a 898cc engine and no air con comes mid October.  It's an estate car built in Romania called a Logan MCV.  I had a test drive and enjoyed it very much.  My only option is the 7 year warranty. Trading in a Mercedes ML270 (reliability shocking) or might ebay the Merc to a dreamer.

Good News, the dealer offered me £1595 for the old Merc.  Within 30 seconds of posting the ebay price was £1595 (my reserve).

My EOS is in at the main dealer to have the abs repair kit fitted today.  VW designed the brake pressure sensor into the pump itself. These sensors fail and the whole pump has to come out and be fixed (a £900 fix).  If your VW has the ESP light on all the time it's worth taking it to a main dealer as they do the fix for free (rubbish design in the first place, VW want it kept off Watchdog) - Egbert Nosh's top tip for the day.

Well the Spaniards are buying these Logans in droves due to the way commercial vehicles are taxed they use them as load luggers.

I think they start at £7k new too? Mental.

And that shows JUST what you know. ;)

Anyone that's driven a few Micras know that those CVT boxes with a 1.3 engine makes for a bloody nippy thing off the line. Albeit to about 15MPH. :grin:
