Well as you all probably know I am LAZY!   :)  So this needs a bit of tidying, but lots to offer.

 

Approx 151k miles, MOT Early January.  I only do sub 4k miles a year. Serviced in June where i also had them replace a

noisy wheelbearing and fitted a silicone boost hose that i purchased for my previous car.

 

Need to sort the pictures,

newone.jpg

 

 

Owned since Jan 2015 i think?  I fitted the towbar soon after and towed my 1100kg caravan to the

lakes and cornwall.  Pulls like a train as you would expect.  (7 pin socket with the additional S socket

fitted but not wired up).   (get used to that  :D  )

 

Bury Bluetooth Handsfree kit (can you guess)?  Its working but as it didnt have the 2 steering control

wires, I did a temp install and its just tucked into the glovebox, yep that was 3 years ago :). It works

bluetooth connects and i can receive calls which is all i needed.

Since obtained the old Bury unit from my old car which does have the 2 additional connectors.

 

Err what else, Crap at adverts...  Usual Ghia trim folding puddle mirrors, Front Fogs NS with crack i have

a good spare you can have.

 

There is an addon reverse sensor kit but that stopped working recently. Guessing a loose wire to the reverse

lights. 3 keys 2 standard remote keys and an additional MK4 style folding key with the tibbe blade.

 

16" alloys good tyres, Standard steel spare with like new tyre. Used only by my sister when she got a

puncture and her spare was having a punture repaired.

 

I will get some decent pictures uploaded soon, As usual they offered silly money as part ex, I think its

worth far more.  So if anyone is interested and wants to make an offer.... Needs to go fairly soon

though.  They are just sorting a few bits on the replacement and i have figures with and without the

part ex.

 

Bad bits, notchy steering in that centre position. That went away whilst touring cornwall recently, where

it was used a lot everyday. But since its been parked up for periods again it has returned. Needs tracking

but i was going to get the steering sorted when i thought about a change of vehicle.

 

Scuff on drivers door and a deep scratch on the rear bumper which was there when i bought it, but because its platinum metallic i didnt trust them to do a decent job because it changes colour in different lights.  MOT says grey.

 

I think there is plenty of life in the old girl yet and for someone fitter and less lazy than me it should serve

you well.

 

 

£950   ???  Offers

 

 

The 140bhp MK4.5 felt really sluggish compared to this.

 

Shame to see it go through the part ex and auction where its likely to end up.

 

Offers?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EDIT 13/03/2021   Nephew bought this in 2019 and is not selling it due to the clutch master failing and used that as an excuse to buy a 2.2 XSport MK4.5.

 

Offer him £300...   MOT until 15/12/2021..  Going to get scrapped soon if no takers.

You've been toying over the idea for long enough now and unless you do it then you'll never know. If you ever fancy another mk3 then you can get them cheap enough. I've got to be honest I am going to test drive a car Friday afternoon which is a vauxhall (dives for cover) but is a 2017 astra 1.6 turbo 200ps Ltd edition. I've been an astra man since my first car and the only thing that's kept the mondeo in my possession is just the shear power.
Derby is now going against diesel engines and I only drive locally so a petrol is more suitable now as I do lots of stopping and starting

Don't fancy a nice 2.2TDCI Ghia estate then.   :)

 

Forums gone really quiet over the last couple of years, this would have been snapped

up at one time.

 

Expected the MK4 section to be bustling with activity but most of the stuff

is 4 years old.

None of my business, Purple, but just WHY are you swapping it/have you swapped it?

I can see the mk3 section of TF being pretty much dead before too long :(

There are lots of mk3 Facebook groups, but just so many posts seem to be about making the mk3 better by painting random parts bright colours or covering the car is extra stickers and badges.

As a general run about to get from A to B the Astra is a good car, when we had one as a hire car last year it did everything as it should, did nothing wrong and everything worked, it was just a bit boring though. Just the same as the Clio from a few years before, worked and did everything properly, but uninspiring.

The 2017 Astra compared to the Focus I have now was chalk and cheese for road handling, the Focus is a whole level above the Astra and rock solid. That said, if you are only pottering around going from A to B any car will do the job. :)

A brand new Dacia Sandero Ambience is only £7700!

The whole forum appears to be thin on the ground lately. I expected there to be lots

of fresh stuff on the MK4 section but mostly older threads.

 

Checked haynes and they only list the MK4 upto 2011. I know some things on the

engines changed like the EGR valve position etc. Wonder if it covers that change?

 

Read the other day that the MK4 got outsold by the Insignia, I was tempted to go and

look at some insignia's. Dealers that had 1 Mondeo often had 2 or 3 Insignia's.

Oh well, fair enough then. No contest! I'm hanging onto mine as long as poss because of the sunroof (sorry Purple) and it still goes. And because of the knowledge base on TF (thanks, guys) that gives me the confidence to do quite a lot of jobs on it myself. Raynkar, the way you're going, yours'll be brand-new again before you know it :-)
