*High* mileage Volvo

Post by Welly » Tue Jun 10, 2014 4:50 pm

Sorry about the source of the story but 575K miles aint too bad? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... -down.html
Cars in my care:

2005 Volvo S40 T5 a bit pampered, now lacking boostage, under investigation
2010 Citroen C4 1.6 HDi turbo de' explosions, injured leg but now recovering from shock
2010 Renner Twingo refreshingly simple, now with fresh MOT, no advisories

* Simon Marshall, 49, has only spent £500 on the car since he bought it in 2008
* He bought the car for £5,500 and has only spent £3,000 on minor repairs

So which is it £500 or £3000?
