I'd get it MOT'd and change the pads. Might double its value.

Sensible man. A good Hi-Jet is a great asset. It is just like a good woman. If you have a good one hang on to her.

I keep getting rid of Hi-Jets and finding new ones. You would think that my wife would take the hint - - but no such luck.

Okay, so this might be available now as an MOT failure.
The main description is still mostly correct but since that post the brake pads and discs have been replaced and still in v good condition. Both wing mirrors have been replaced with non-hijet ones but they don't wobble like the original ones did. Sliding doors open and close okay and the handles are working. Mileage is now approx 85K - has had two oil/filter changes since last year.

Failed MOT on cracked n/s leaf spring and leaf spring suspension mounting areas excessively corroded o/s and n/s.

I'm deciding whether to keep it and get the jobs done or get shut. If anyone is interested in this as a project or to break send me a message.
