I own a Saxo VTR and to be honest i’ve probably exceeded the vehicles value over and over again doing repairs to it. I mentioned a while ago that i might need a new car but i didn’t bother then. I thought the time was now but i just don’t have the time to look for a new car yet.
Anyway, my Saxo is back in the garage with something wrong with the rear axle. I was coming home from work one day and i heard this scrubbing sound coming from the rear wheels. Got home and i inspected the wheels at the back and found out they were bent inwards scrubbing against the inner arch.
The cost? £370 for a new axle and thats without fitting! Along with this i’m getting new rear brake disc’s and pads so what will the bill be? I’d say in excess of £500. I’m going to use this excuse to drive this car a little longer and then i think i will get rid and get that Fiesta ST i’ve been looking for.
It wasn’t that long ago when the head gasket went and that cost around £300 to get sorted. Before that the front brakes needed renewing. I guess it’s that time when everything fails on your car.
I’m setting myself a promise now, if anything else goes wrong i’m going to get a new car. End of.
