Juddering when braking? Or all the time?

If its the first, then yes ABS sensor is most common, especially around 10-11 years old and 100k miles.

If the second then clutch.

The 1.4 doesn't show up much on here, it doesn't have much poke.

£450 is suspiciously cheap for a 2003 plater though. 200k and tatty interior?

Get one of us to do a diagnostic on it, there could be hidden nasties.

It could be worth a risk if it drives OK, and engine and clutch are good. I'd go in low at £350, maybe go up to £400. But no more because when you factor in the known issues and the unknown issues, you could be potentially doubling the spend.

I can't see the breakers offering him this, I thought the going rate was £250.

would take to breakers as when you get to webuyanycar i bet the price drops to about £50
Agreed. I put my 2004 laguna with 120k details on their site and the offer was £750 less the £50 administration fee. Then the site asked for details of faults. I entered the known faults and the quote came back at £75 with no administration fee. The faults were ABS light on and a gearbox issue. Got £450 trade in at the place I bought my 307 even after I told them all of the faults.

Guess this guy didn't mention the ABS fault or the cracked windscreen when he got his quote from them.
