    Need some advice please

    Hi, my mum has a 200sx automatic and as sheís now in her 80ís itís too big for her. She wants to sell it but is worried about getting ripped off. The last garage visit said it needed new fuel pipes and some work on the front wheel to do with the suspension. The garage said it would cost £3000-£3500 to get it fixed but that the rest of the engine was in good condition. 9 the garage is a small concern and didnít have the room to do it ). There is also some rust bubbling on one of the doors. Please could anyone give me some advice about the best way forward. Thank you.

    £3K is an awful lot to fix anything that isnt the entire engine on a 200SX, as Paul says give us some more details and we will see if we can help.

    These cars have increased in value considerably over the last few years, if you get the issues fixed she should see a decent price for it

    Welcome to the board, we'll need more information to be able to help but I agree with docrwa, if it's not a completely rusty car or something like that then it seems a lot of money.

    We can help you
