OK the list of repairs needed in the two years I owned my Clio are:
Turbo pipe (two months after I bought it)
back brakes
track rod end (drove round with it snapped for six months)
front brakes
hazard warning switch (was the one what made me think it was time for a new car)
coil springs (also needed bushes and struts but jimmied those cause was picking up the a1 in 9 week)
and last but not least at the time of selling it needed a new brake cylinder which didn't get done and the sunroof leaked from the day I got it!

Lmfao ... Serious Bad luck. Anyways slow your roll on the negativities.
Thus far nothing has gone wrong and hopefully it will remain this way until it goes in September time !

Looking forward to driving something more respectable ... Its doing nothing for my Image. So i don't even park in the Hospital Car Park, lol.
Park about 5 minutes walk away outside somebody's house (and no I don't know the owner of the house) due to its free parking. lol

I Don't need a car to impress but a Nice car can't help especially when taking some1 for a ride :lol:

I'm sure the chevette would have had a hazard switch to fall out at the very least!

OK on the plus side it always started in the morning and managed to get me from Preston to Leeds every morning during the bad winter couple of years ago where I was overtaking cars and vans which were spinning in the snow!
