I have purchased a damaged 06 Kia rio crdi which needs a bonnet £188,headlamp £150, bumper cover £107 all plus vat plus painting £350 and labour.There are no scrapyards with parts,the abs light is on which is another problem not anticipated.In all with the £1400 paid for car plus repair not cheap,I recently sold an 05 Rio (the earlier model) which was heavy on fuel and developed an annoying tappet rattle when coldwhich put the engine management light on.I changed oils and put additive in engine (designedto stop hydraulic lifter rattle) they didnt. I have also tried various insurance comparison websites and with full n.c.b have quotes from £350 upwardsso once repaired will be on the market as not an inexpensive vehicle to own and depreciation not good.
