Would You Buy A Car With 150K Miles On It?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Seen a car locally forsale that has 150k miles on it.

It does have FSH and lots of extras work including

Full clutch kit (have asked this includes flywheel)


Turbo pipe



Starter Motor

OSR Brake Clapier

Auxillary Belt

Water Pump

and normal items brakes etc

Its a Mondeo Ghia TDCI 2,0L (euro 04) 2007 plate (07)

Looking for around £2000 for it

Not sure if this is good value as What Car valuations only go to 100k

Its got 12 months MOT but failed the last one

Reason(s) for refusal to issue Certificate

Offside Rear brake caliper leaking (3.6.A.1)

Nearside Front Tyre tread depth below requirements of 1.6mm (4.1.E.1)

Advisory Notice issued

Steering system slightly tight (2.2.D.1)

Rear d shape bushes Anti-roll bar has slight play in a pin/bush (2.4.G.2)

Short answer from me. No.

At 150k miles how many more mile do you expect to get from the car. there are high image bargains to be found but I certainly wouldn't buy a car with more than 70-80k miles on it and even then it would have to have full history and confirmation of any adhoc work completed..

The MOT failure is a bit of a glimpse into the future if that motor.

150k is nothing for a diesel, and it's had the turbo, clutch and flywheel done so other than any possible injector issues it should be good for another few miles if it's looked after properly

Slightly concerned about the steering being slightly tight - could be an issue in the near future.

Yeah, as long as the belts been changed the engine can do at least another 100k, maybe work on the price though, but overall, with so many parts already replaced, it could well be a worthwhile buy at a xheaper price!
