Hello all. I'm starting to look for my next car, one of the strong contenders is a VX220. I'm a glutton for punishment as this would be my third. It has been a while since I've been in touch with you 'orrible lot so wondered if there is anything new to look out for. When I was a regular on here I can remember a few costly/PITA things to look out for (in no particular order):
Toe links and HCB's replaced
Steering rack play
Damaged windscreen (I had to have one replaced........wallet ouch)
Turbo turkey gobble gobble
Has anything new come up in the past few years? I seem to remember that some spares were becoming scarce, especially rear brake calipers?. I also vaguely remember something about a part of the rear sub frame coming un-glued? Maybe dreamed that?
Any way, hello everybody. I still regret selling my last VX and hope to be back in one within the next few months, I had some great times in my turbo and the SC. The only problem is that I have decent money to spend and the VX is up against some stiff competition............
