Really want to buy a 3.0 and I do think that the price is right but the dealer has a list of the following faults:

- Tire pressure indicator indicates that it is 'broken'

- Power steering does not work when engine is cold

- Right passenger door can't be opened from the outside

- One 'key-card' is not programmed

- Rear wiper arm is missing

- Central locking does not work on drivers door

- Ignition (difficult to read the key-card, works from time to time)

- Alarm 'boxes' that can't be used for locking

- One engine mount is 'ratteling' quite much

Do you have any ideas if this is a car I should forget or are the above problems not that bad?

It's a 2002 that has about 180'000km on the clock, looks nice for the age and the price converted

from swedish kronor is something like 1500 Euro.

Personally I would run – not walk – away.

Some of the problems are very common and not really a big deal (eg: tyre pressure indicators broken), but issues like the power steering and ignition would really put me off.

Of course, a car that old is always going to have some problems; and I know nothing about values in Sweden, but that price in Great Britain would typically be for a Vel satis with far fewer problems than that, in my experience.
