    cars with high miles ?

    would you consider buying a car with high miles (say between 100-150k) ?

    esp if the owner maintains it to a very high standard ?

    and its got full history with every little thing done to it when needed ?

    been looking at a few cars now to replace the mk3 golf and two GSI's i have been looking at have high miles. both have full history and the one with the higher miles is owned by a vauxhall tech guy who looks after his cars to a very high standard

    The V6 engines do last a long time.

    Just bought the 2.5 V6 SRi veccy with 126000 miles, usual bits of rust I'll sort, but has a fairly new engine in.

    The Vectra V6s are so cheap now for circa 2000 reg. ones!
