Need to replace my current MOT failure cheap, looking at a small engine £500-650 or under, if possible trying to get a couple of years out of it so more than the next mot.
I use the bike daily for work and only need the car to get to races on the weekend, therefore I'm not that keen on a wedge of cash sat out the front of the house rusting away.
My last car was a '96 micra brought off a mate so minimum rip-off protection was needed, I'm pretty clueless with cars on the whole.
Fair to say any car that price is going to have problems, whats the obvious stuff you look for?
I know Nissans have the front cross member rust fault.
Mayo under the oil caps?
Rust on arches / sills
Test drive to see if it steers straight
