Smile Advice needed... Thinking of buying a 2nd cruiser... your thoughts???

My sports car looks like it's about to die from head gasket failure so i'm really tempted to buy another cruiser (Already have a 02 plate 2.2 crd)
I'm looking at a 2003 CRD classic with 132,000 miles on the clock. It's looks in reasonable condition and they only want 1400 for it with 12 months MOT.
Worth it or not in your opinion? Currently listed on UK Ebay (Item number 121074135441)
Thanks in advance for your help!
Toby

Not a bad looking cruiser. No pictures of the motor or interior, wonder why? If you know someone that's knowledgeable or a mechanic, have them look it over carefully before making up your mind.

No one should be dumb enough to own two of them, lol.
Hope you find another one like you want.

Pretty clever what some people can do with 10 bags of cement and a mirror!

Cool Re: Advice needed... Thinking of buying a 2nd cruiser... your thoughts???

Went to look at the car today... Little disappointed tbh... No cruise control, non turbo, engine good though and bodywork ok. Needs a really good clean. The air bag and brake warning lights stay on all the time! Easy to sort??? Got him to come down to 1250 but still not sure... Are all the classic crd non turbo?

I've looked, and as far as I can tell, all the PT Diesels were 2.2L turbos made by Mercedes.
Pehaps the one you looked at had an engine swap?
