Car Models: 9-5 Aero
2002 9-5 Aero saloon Spares/repairs.

130500 miles.
The bad:
1 key.
Some service history.
Likes to drink oil like a tramp downs Kestrel Super strength! Needs topping up every week.
Some smoke on start up.
All 4 alloys need a refurb, no major damage though.
3 tyres slow leak of air and need monitoring.
Dent nearside rear quarter because someone at work can’t park straight ☹
Nearside wing mirror glass smashed.
Headlamp level warning light on but headlights work just fine.
Driver’s heated seat doesn’t.
Driver’s window switch temperamental.
Now has a start issue, battery won’t hold charge overnight. Starts just fine when jump started or battery put on charge. New battery should sort this.

Told you it was spares or repairs!

The good:
MOT until 2nd November.
No dead pixels.
Cruise control works.
Since I have had the car it has had:
New headlamp control unit.
New gearbox oil.
Subframes polybushed.
New rosebushes x4.
New rear trailing arm bushes.
New aux belt.
Brake pipes replaced.
New crank position sensor.
New thermostat, engine temp sensor and engine torque rod bush.

Prior to my ownership updated oil breather pipes fitted, sump cleaned etc. No paperwork for this though.

Car has the aluminium dash trim.
Full black leather in good condition.

So, the car has had money put into it (over £1900) but I’m at the end of the road with her and she is being replaced with an estate car for dog carrying duties.

Can't upload photos for some reason but happy to email any across.
