Quote from: "roger"The same arguement could be said for any car with "known" faults, having said that failure rate is low, and there is still the unanswered question whether pre-cats are the cause or the result of a problem.To answer your question:-1. Buy an 03+2. Inspect pre-cats before you buy3. Take them out after you buy4. Have a warranty with the car. If its shot when you buy, it'll be gone well within 3 months! 5. Warranty Direct do 12 months for around £200 depending on mileage for use after garage warranty ends.
Quote from: "nelix"Roger, I'm fairly sure Warranty direct does not cover piston ring failure, which would pretty much give them a get out of jail free card i would have thought.
QuoteKEV, All cars have their issues. Rovers K-series - head gaskets, Honda S2000 clutches, Peugeots Idle Valves and speed sensors etc etc.
Quote from: "kanujunkie"your right about the O2 sensors on UK and Jap spec cars, however your not removeing the main cat, just the pre-cats, so no it wont bring the CEL light on
