Hope you don't mind lending a thought or two. I'm considering this car:
Been to see it and looks tidy enough. Main concern is the timing belt - none of the service history suggests it's been done ever. It's got 80,000 miles on the clock. The service book suggest the timing belt (or "toothed belt" as it says) should be done at 100,000 miles - but that doesn't seem right. I know the 1.9TDI is 60K/4 years. Any one know for sure what it is on this engine?
Other points: clutch had a high biting point, brake pedal had fair bit of travel, uneven wear on the front brake pads (one looked close to needing replacement).
