I agreed to the sale last Friday after another test drive and collected the car on the Saturday morning. Did around 30 miles in it and I love it. It's a completely different car compared to the Corolla, not just in size but the engine as well. It is very smooth when it accelerates although being on standard suspension it does roll abit in the corners.
The car is on just under 98k miles and it has full Honda history up until last July when the 100k mile service was done at 94k miles. So all I need to do is an oil change, the rest should hopefully be fine. Last year it also had both upper wishbones replaced and a lower arm bush. The MOT was done a week ago with an advisory for slight play in one of the drop links so that's a job for next year. I even have the receipt for the original debit card payment for the car, £20,700!
The first issue to address is the battery, I knew it was knackered but it's going flat overnight so I'm ordering a new one today. The rear tyres could ideally do with replacing, especially with the bad weather here but I'm debating whether to buy some 16" alloys and stick some winter tyres on. The tread left on the rear will do me for next summer and I can replace them the year after then. It's just a matter of whether I can find some cheap alloys in the next week or 2.
This is the only photo I have so far, will get some more soon
