2003 Renault Trafic 9 Seater Long Wheel Base Mini Bus.
Up for sale is my Renault Trafic 9 seater.
Taxed and tested ,long MOT until June 2014, taxed until end of July 2013.
All Forward Facing Seats, With loads of Storage Space,
Tow Bar, 2 Keys, Fire Extinguisher etc.
This has had a cylinder rebuild June last year
(about 16,000 miles ago)
In all well over £3,400 spent in the last 12 months, new alternator, gear linkage, starter motor, etc etc etc. bills to prove.
Gearbox replaced by the previous owner, a few years ago.
Loads of bills and service history.
NOW!! please read:
This is being sold as spares or repair because over the last few weeks it starts when cold but does not like starting when its hot!!.
The other day and for the first time it just cut out on me,
I called the AA, they towed me to a safe area and of course, yes it started straight away!!!, but the engine management light was on.
The AA took it to my garage and they plugged it in to their computer only to find nothing that caused the problem.
They put the light out.
They have driven it and it runs well although as far as I know it will still have the poor starting when hot.
Due to my contract work within hours of the breakdown I purchased a friends 08 plate 9 seated taxi, so now I have the Renault for sale.
This is high mileage, 300,000 miles was done by the previous owner just up and down the motorway.
It uses hardly any oil and runs well BUT the fault is still there I think!!!.
You may well drive this 1000 plus miles with no trouble but again, who knows it may cut out on you at anytime?? it may be a simple fix but after spending £3000 plus on it I decided to buy my friends vehicle, and that was a sudden decision to keep my contract.
The interior is tidy, the drivers seat has wear, the bodywork shows no rust but does have a scrape each side at the rear, and the front bumper is scuffed.
Please see all the pictures.
This is being stored at Carterton 20 miles from my postcode.
Could be a simple fix but if you bid you buy.
Just been over to it today and it started fine, drove it out for the pictures all no problem.
It has only ever cut out this once but now due to my contract I have lost some faith in it, it could be fine but sold as spares or repair.
You bid you buy, if unsure please come and view.

Just to make you all aware I now have 71 people watching!!
Loads of requests to "buy it now"
It may be a last minute scramble??
I want to keep the auction running so bid up if you want to drive it away.
