Buy?or pass?

Recommended Posts

Found a 1984 esprit turbo very cheap. Owner says it runs and drives but a gearbox issue is occurring. I know parts are hard to find and costly. As a novice should I consider this or pass it up. Please help.

Pass, of course!  And send me the details.

Depends how cheap.  And on the specifics of the issue...

That's a ludicrous price, regardless of what's wrong with it.  Buy it!

^^ what he said! As a matter of fact, when it comes to Esprits, one should always listen to Sparky. ;)

In my opinion it's often better to buy a car with (a) known issue(s) at a good price, than pay top money only to discover the issues later on.

Agree with Escape.The gearbox change isn,t too bad with the engine in situ.It takes about 5-8 hours when you know what you do!
