2009 not fail

Recommended Posts


About to purchase a 09 se but today I checked online and seen that it had failed due to excessive corrosion around the seat belt mounting point.

Think I should get my refundable deposit back?

Or wait till I view it Saturday and see if can get a good deal?

Auto diesel 56500 miles 3 owners £6999 at dealer. Is colour I prefer and interior.

Hi Andy

Are you saying it failed it's previous MOT, or its current MOT to renew prior to sale? If previous, then the necessary repairs would have been done surely? If it's failed to pass this time, then the choice is yours! I'm surprised for a car that's not that old to have rust to that degree, if you're deposit is refundable, ask the dealer what are they going to do about it? If you're happy with their response then the decision to do the deal or not is yours of course .

anyway you could get the work done to ensure it passes the MOT, perhaps allowing you a bit of a deal between yourself and seller, get a much better deal, if you take her away and get the work done yourself, or probably the wisest and simplest thing get your money back, and find another car.
