G'day people of JustCommodores. I am thinking of purchasing a 2005 VZ Auto Executive Commodore, it is rather cheap and has some nice bodywork done to it. It is priced at $3500 (negotiable), and only has 97,000 kms. I was unable to determine the low price, and when questioned on the issues of the car he produced a list of mechanical issues that may need to be fixed in the near future. I felt as though this is the most appropriate forum to post my queries. The mechanical faults: Engine oil leak Engine & Gear mount a bit worn Castor Rod bushes worn both ends Coolant Flush Battery and Bonnet loose Front brakes due LH tie rod end has movement and needs replacing. How much of this would be fixable at home? I have a lot of time to fix the issues if I am capable of doing it myself, as I am capable of getting my provisional licence in September. If anyone is happy to advise me, would anyone know what a rough price estimate of the repairs needing to be done? The owner stated that he was able to reduce the price a little, and I am happy to spend a little extra just to get it perfect. If the repairs were done now, would there be much fixing at a later date? I don't plan on thrashing the car, and plan on looking after it and servicing it regularly. Thank you to any and every reply to this thread. Thanks!
