Description

2008 Renault Twingo GT TCe.

1.2 Turbo (100bhp) manual. Comes with aircon, Bluetooth for calls, automatic lights, automatic wipers, front foglights, electric windows, electrically adjusted wing mirrors, steering wheel controls for phonecalls and stereo, aux + usb port in glovebox, digital speedometer all of which function correctly.

The car has been owned by myself for 7+ years, I bought it with 17,000 miles. It has been mainly used for commuting doing easy motorway miles. I have enjoyed using the car in this time, but having now finished my education I have bought myself a new car and have no room to keep the Twingo.

The car has been serviced regularly and in line with the manufacturers guidance as closely as possible. Recently the car had a new battery and starter motor @123,000 miles, major service @113,000 miles (includes spark plugs which have to be iridium, more expensive but last a long time), rear brake shoes @103,000 miles, front discs and pads and coilpack @87,000 miles, ABS unit replaced by Renault @61,000 miles (no issues since), timing belt @60,000 miles (i have the receipt for this). These are the main items in the cars history, it has had other interval services each year etc. The car is currently due a service and timing belt, this is reflected in the price. MoT has one month remaining. Previous MoT had one advisory for play in track rod ends, but you will note that the car has had this advisory on almost all of its MoT - the mechanic who has serviced and MoT'd the car every year that I've owned the car explained that all Twingo have it but he legally has to advise you.

The car may seem high mileage but it has been looked after and most of the mileage has been on the motorway, it's still on the original clutch with no slip! The car starts first time within a couple of turns even on a cold morning and the engine still pulls strongly with no issues from the turbo, gearbox or suspension. The car usually returns 40+mpg with 49mpg being my best on a long run.

The car is quite cheap to run, servicing is relatively low cost, I have fitted Avon/Toyo tyres for ~£50 a corner for the last few years, I have insured it fully comp SDPC with breakdown (never used) and 18,000 miles p.a. for ~£500 and tax is £135.

This is a good little car that I will be sad to see go. It has some usual age related stone chips and marks, but i think it cleans up quite nicely on the whole. I will consider offers in the region £895.
