We recently bought the above car only to find that the speedo keeps fluctuating between speeds, one minute its on zero then itll jump up to 80 and keep jumping in between zero and 80. We also noticed yesterday when we travelled about 140 mile round trip it only calcuated that we had done about 40 miles, obviously begging the question as to whether the low mileage it was advertised with is actually genuine. Any ideas to what this problem is and whether it will be a big and expensive job
Thanks

Hi there,

We don't have this car on the data base, but I would be expecting that there is a speed sensor acting up, these are normally not overly expensive and are generally easy to replace, as for the mileage on the car, with what you have deducted, there will be some discrepancy with the actual mileage, but to what extent is unknown.
