i saw the guy who originally owned it in my local sainsburys the other night,recognised him from when i saw him out and about in the car,said to him excuse me are you the guy who had the carlton? he says yes thats right is that your grey one outside? yes i said,then i went on to ask why he kissed goodbye to it after so many years? and he said it had a fault whereby it would die occasionally when going along and sometimes refusing to start also AA man suggested crank sensor to him but i said did you ever change the fuel pump relay? and he said no so there you go i rekon and also had a bad vibration running through it at 20 mph went away when going left round corners,i was thinking rear subframe bushes on that one? as he said hed had the prop all reconned so that should be good? thing i established with him is he doesnt use the internet or indeed have it!! i informed him of this excellent forum where he could of solved its problems i think and buy parts off e-bay for instance,he said the last time it failed on him he must off been making noises to the AA man hed had enough now and wanted to part company with it whereby the AA guy offered him £100 for it !!! needless to say he wasnt very happy when i said id seen it on e-bay fetch about £600! shame its now left my area i liked looking out for it,just my 2 and a gorgeous red gsi near me now!
