Hey, I've been wanting a commy for ages now and finally decided it was time to buy one. While i was looking on carsales i found a vx lumina with close to 200,000 kms on it. It needs a bit of work, a transmission for one thing as it apparently doesnt work. Its advertised for only $1500, do you think its worth bothering to have a look at it or moving on?
Also, how much do vx trans go for?
Cheers, Jack

You dont want a car that you have to spend money fixing as soon as you buy it. Keep looking, there are some good ones out there.

I'll be putting up a VT Acclaim soon, its in decent nick, its in canberra though, but i would honestly put my bottom dollar on if you came and pick it up it would happily drive all the way home no problem. Never failed on me once, appart from the standard stuff, flat battery here and there, owned it since new, good service history, few little things wrong with it, but overall its good, and it has rego, 3 or 6 months, your choice, but you pay for it. $2000 for the car, rego is about $220 for 3 months. think about it.

Budgets about $5000, found a couple of VT Acclaims we're organising to have a look at this week, so we'll see how that goes haha.
And thanks for the offer VRMan, but its a bit too much of a hassle.
