I had a look at a cav cdx (M reg 80,000 miles, 2.0i 16v) today, but i'm not sure that I want to buy it. can anybody shed any light on any of these... problems?
the engine management light stayed on the whole time I was test-driving it. Under acceleration (say.. half to three quarter throttle) the power was coming in waves, for a second or two it would feel like my 1.6L, and then the power was there, then not etc. The bloke said that it hadn't been used for a month or two and it "never used to do that", and he said that the engine management light usually goes off after a couple of secs. Is this likely to be an expensive fault?
Also, the ABS light stayed on, he said vauxhall said this was no problem, and it had got it's mot like that. I didn't skid it to see wether the abs was kicking or not. should have really i suppose.
Also, (and i apologise for this not being the bodywork/styling bit ) the bonnet had plenty of chips in it, any idea how much a bonnet respray in metallic maroon would be?
cheers for any advice
