    Is it high revving, rather than tickover? If so, seems a common problem.

    I have no interest in cars in general but need a decent run around.
    Not read any further but a budget may help

    I've never bought a new car, but always wondered what sort of money you can chip off a brand spanker?
    If its in the showroom for £25,000 and you offer £23,000 do you get it?

    Not today . We have had orders cancelled by VW and Toyota for cars for our hire fleet . Everything is being sold at max price.
    The positive side is we are getting crazy money for our 3 year old vehicles coming off rent.

    Take it round to my garage we will have a look ( if you are local to Cardiff) Might be gearbox , sounds more like clutch or dual mass flywheel. Might even be worth putting a box in it if it is the box . Second hand cars are making crazy money at the moment .

    Another vote for electric, in particular as you have off street parking. But I wouldn’t buy it. Do you have a company car scheme?
