Valid opinion tainboy. Mine was used for a daily run into London before I got my hands on it. When I test drove it it was flat as a pancake but was 99% sure it was the MAF that was wrong. Changed it soon after I bought it and had no probs sinceReading on here, the people that have MAF problems seem to come from highly populated areas. I live in the sticks (look at a map of scotland, put your finger on it, and I can 99% be sure you are at least 100 miles too far south) and never have to drive in any sort of comngestion. I reckon (my opinion mind) that the MAFs are failing in the highly populated areas due to pollution (car fumes, industrial fumes etc)
mine doesn't have a/c or climate - and a sunroof. Maybe the owner has retro fitted cruise controlThe ad doesn't says it has a/c or climate. Tbh this is an essential option for the mkiv, models without it have worse residuals and are harder to sell.. Odd spec car, sunroof and cruise but no a/c.
If you're going to spend premium money on a 1998 model you may as well stick to Autotrader rather than ebay.
