    1.8 SRi Advice

    Hey all,

    Im new, so Hi!

    Secondly, I'm maybe interested in a mk4 1.8 SRi down the road from me. Its 2002, but has done 106,000. Two owners and full service history, and it looks pretty damn tidy, but the mileage is really putting me off. How reliable are these cars, and is 106,000 meaning its past its prime in mileage terms, or is this not a worrying number at all?

    Any other things to look out for would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    Last Sept i bought my 1.8 SRi on a 51 plate. It'd done 11k with FSH.

    Seems in decent nick to me so far.

    Haha, damn OK well thats put me slightly more at ease, it's just the last experience I had with Vauxhalls was with my dads old Cavalier, which left us almost stranded in Cornwall once, so not the best experience to go on :P

    My SRi is nearly on 110k now, but still runs sweat as a nut. Most of it was motorway milage from the previous owner though.

    Cheers guys. I'm guessing this one was probably motorway miles too, be hard pushed to do that in 6/7 years otherwise I reckon! FSH too means it should have been looked after, but we shall see I guess.
