  1. Another update: I have just been out in the car. It drove for 2 miles and then the exact same thing happened. Check gearbox highlighted on the dashboard and the car went into limp mode. I am absolutely outraged and i feel i have been conned out of my hard earned money. I will speak to CAB tomorrow and go from there.

I spotted the ad on ebay so went to look at the car. I test drove it ( 2-3 miles), liked it and bought it there and then. The ebay ad stated there was a fault with the airbag light and because of that, it was reduced in price.I fully accepted this.
