Why are all the cars I might want to buy always in other states?
Anyway, for someone in Tasmania, on Gumtree is this nice looking 1999 V40 T4 manual for sale for only $2,400.
Someone should buy it and then immediately relist it for $12,000 (joking).
I looked at this. Wow dodgy as. Heater coil gone - to the extent that mould and area floor mats stuck to carpet in back. No water in expansion tank, water had blown out of expansion tank. Took 3 litres of water to fill it and then it was all oily. Spoke to my mechanic who had serviced it and brakes needed doing, they had cooked the engine on the highway. So body looked ok apart from dent in roof, but mechanically it was shot. The guy was happy to reduce it by $500 because of possible work needed - quite laughable really. It had been traded by a car yard and a mate and detailer from car yard was trying to flog it off so no connection to car yards reputation. It has come up a couple of times for sale this year as people have bought it and discovered that it is a disaster. Inside pretty average to grotty.
