From the wisdom of HJ:
All are now getting old and tired and were never supposed to last 10 years-plus. Many have done huge mileages and the clocks may not be showing it.

You need to be really careful buying a car of this age! You are well into banger territory, so I would suggest you carefully digest Richard Hall's site, including the valutations section.

Also,IIRC, the Laser was one of the special run-out models with a very basic spec. The 1.6 engine was pretty weak-kneed too.

Hi

If i was to buy a low mileaged one such as a 60 thousand miler would that be a good buy at £350 with full service history.

what features does this car have is it as basic as my fiesta pop plus (mk3)

James:

It really depends on the condition of the car in question. At this sort of age the mileage becomes (even) less important. It could be thoroughly rusty, have worn out brakes, clutch, tyres, engine, gearbox... but still have only 60k miles and fsh. Or it could be fine.

Have you visited the bangernomics site yet?

James,

I reckon you're better off with your Fiesta, but if you really want to get a bigger car than there are plenty of better cars around for the same or a little more money.

Sierras weren't much cop when they were new.

Where in the country are you ?

Mark.

Well if you read Bangernomics - if its got 12 months ticket on it its on the button at £350.00 (i.e. mutiply cost of MoT by 12) Coming form a trader it will have a six month implied warranty under the new euro regs. At the end of the day at that level you pay your money and take your chances, as is well documented on this website I bought an M reg Cav with 81k for £500.00 but has cost the firm around another £150.00 to sort. No rust good sound motor and we could always flog it for what we paid in a year.
