Question about 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara

1 Answer

I am in the process of buying a suzuki grand vitara 55 plate. It has only 21k on the clock but has failed the MOT as the ABS sensor is faulty. Is this a serious thing? I would have thought on a car that is only 4 years old and with that low a mileage it shouldn't have problems like that. Is it a suzuki problem? I thought they were supposed to be very reliable cars. Any advice gratefully received! Many thanks

    I am buying it from the Leed Motor Company. They have done the MOT for me. I was supposed to be picking it up and paying for it tomorrow but I am a bit spooked now having been told that the ABS sensor is faulty and needs replacing.

It could be serious if it had been in an accident and damaged somthing at the wheels.Check that the rotors are fine,the wheel bearings and that the sensors are all in correctly at the wheels
