    If you wanted to buy a car and the ad said "free haynes manual" with the car. Would you still buy the car? Or would you think that theres a problem with the car?

    Well at least you'll be able to fix it if there is something wrong. Ask the seller if he bought it for the car and why.

    Hmm i would negoiate it down to about 700 quid...then its ok. The fact that it comes with a haynes manual is insignificant.

    We have workshop and/or haynes manuals for almost every car we own, including one of the modern ones. I wouldn't take it to mean there's anything wrong with the car, just that someone has taken an active interest in upkeep on the car by themself.

    This.And just to be on the safe side, make sure you check the car over when you go to see it, take someone with you who knows about cars if you have to.

    Not getting it anymore. Engine (1.4) too much, which increases my insurance a lot.

    is it your first car? I started out with a 1.9 diesel engine! it was a renult clio! my insurnace was about £1000 then I got a 1.4 306 and that was about 800 now I have a 1.2 punto and the insurance is 500 but there are cars with bigger engines that are lower groups because of the Ncap ratings etc.

    But yes I would go for a 1.2 but dont get a saxo thats the typical boy racer car! lol get a 1.2 fiesta, quite cheap or corsa.
