UK Car Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and Welcome -
My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise.. Im sorry to see you have had a wait.
The VW Topaz 2.5TDi is actually an excellent overall vehicle - The engine fitted to it is an excellent one - ideal pulling power for that vehicle - and its tried and tested in the Audi'd etc over the years. Its a very strong reliable and econ engine. The same applies to the transmission and basically all the Vw / Audi / VAG running gear - you shouldn't see any worries with this model.
Body wise of course it is what it is - its a case of checking it over individually as each one will be looked after in different ways / to different degrees.. but again, the same as the engine - with only 30k miles on the clock.. its like new... the engine / running gear etc inc , hardly run in yet!
I would suggest as I always do , to have a check done by the likes of the AA , or a good reliable mech... and - I would strongly suggest to have a history check done - to be sure there is no finance outstanding on it - no Police interests - no accident / write - off history and mileage verification check. There are many companies you can use - but I prefer the original HPI one... click the link HERE for that - I have uploaded the link for you.
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..~~~>>>>>>~ Meanwhile - Please do click on the "Exc / Ok rating" for me at this time.. Thank you in advance for that . ..Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out -- Best Rgds, MIKE.
