This makes our vehicles from $7,250 to drive away, inclusive of new WOF, band expander and new oil and filter.
At Costello Cars you can expect to have the option of a wide variety of vehicles in optimum condition, in both presentation and safety.

Interestingly for Cantabrians this is something that car sales yards in our region are quite competitive about, whereas we have noticed that in other towns vehicle presentation is not viewed as being quite as crutial.
