    I recently had to buy a car quick sharp as I was made redundant and had to give my company car back. I don’t have much experience with used cars and found a 2003 Volkswagen Golf Match 1.6 108k miles.

    I paid £1200 and took it in for a service and found that the car needs a fair amount of additional work. New clutch, new exhaust, discs/pads and cam belt.

    The MOT is up in September and want to know if its worth doing the work and making the car last at least a year, (if no other faults would work out to be the same as leasing per month) or should I cut my losses and go for a lease deal now?

    I’m just a little frustrated about losing the initial money as I probably wouldn’t get much if I sold now.

    Any help would be gratefully received.

    Kind regards

    Hi Paul. You may have a case to reject the car under the Consumer Rights Act, as those are some significant faults, but it’s probably difficult on a car that’s 15 years old and has covered more than 100,000 miles.

    For more information, have a read of our article about rejecting a faulty car.

    We can’t advise whether you should repair your current car or lease a new one. All we can do is provide articles that give general advice so you can make an informed decision.
