Default What would you choose

Yes I may get some biased opinions

I've got an 01 306 2.0 hdi and an 04 Mondeo 2.0tdci.....the Pug's got 145000 on it, needs taxed, mot'd and handbrake cables, a heater blower (or the resistor thingy)...hasnt been driven since last Dec but was fine.....oh...and needs a key now to start/move it, as dim wit here lost the one and only original he had

Thanks to Bettyswollox for codes and Actionman for the future key

The Mondy has 135000, tax and mot'd till Nov...recently had an injector (but needs another ), 2 front springs and bearings, exhaust front flexi...now need 2 back wheel bearings!....but also drives fine

The driving position of the Mondy fits better than the Pug, but for some reason I've got a soft spot for it (Pug that is)

The Pug's about 60 cheaper to insure (260 for Mondy) and 40odd cheaper in tax (yearly)....body on Pug's a bit better than Mondy, not night/day better, Mondy's got a few scuffs here n there at the back


What one to keep...

id keep the pug, i know injectors for mondys are pricey to say the least. with what needs replacing on the pug you will still save money compare to the mondeo parts.

So you'd keep the Pug......i know what you mean, i was 260 for 1, that was a supply and code, as the guy said that did it.....4 injectors can write off a 7-10yr car. I know what you're saying about parts, it's about 330 for a clutch for the Mondy and about 100 for the pug....and mine (Pug) got one about 7000mls ago.....i'd shit myself if the Mondy needed one

Personally I'd keep the Mondeo.

It's done slightly less miles than the Pug and is younger.

Prices of both are only going to go one way, so you might as well keep the one that's going to be worth the most of the two.

Regarding the parts that need replacing, I'd be buying used parts for either unless used ones were inherently flawed and used would be a real gamble.

If the Mondeo needs springs, wheel bearings etc, then realistically you're going to have to replace those to stand any chance of selling it for decent money (particularly if it's due an MOT any time soon), so you'd be daft to spend at least half the car's market value on repairing it simply to sell.

They've been done, as has an injector but needs another, and now back wheel bearings, the mot's up in Nov, I've go it for sale but think I'm asking to much

But as Russ and someone else said....maybe try and sell both and get something else....thing is, I kinda know what it needs, and starting a fresh with something else, I wont.....dilemas bloody dilemas

Under most normal circumstances, yes.

But I reckon the devil would likely be disguised in this instance as either a Mondeo or Pug with 150k miles on.

If the OP was going to sell both and get a newer something else, it wouldn't be the same age, it'd be newer, and also wouldnt' have the same mileage, it'd be lower (significantly, one would hope).
