No, but I might have a strong opinion bias.

Thanks heaps for all your feedback guys. Greatly appreciated.

I’ll confirm with the seller exactly how far it has travelled since recall. My understanding is (due to ill health) it hasn’t been driven much the last few years, so likely a few hundred ks since recall work, which doesn’t bode well.

Will let you know how I go. I’m sure it’s a brilliant car (and is immaculately presented), but not sure whether I want to carry the risk. I also noticed if I drop my requirement for a GTS, I could get a 2017 GT for not much more...

you buy it and every time you drive it youíll be wondering if itís gonna blow or not. This is not the way to enjoy a car.

Just pass. It can't be that good of a deal. Complete engine meltdown is too possible and that will be the minimum expense....

Really appreciate the advice guys. Actually worked out brilliantly timing wise by giving this car a miss. Picked up a 2017 GTS this afternoon for not considerably more.

Stoked!
