Buying used cars

When it comes to buying a used car, you may have many concerns about how genuine the seller has been.  No one wants to be stung with buying a car that is riddled with faults or to have it break down on you a few weeks later. When buying any used car there is always an element of risk involved but you can only hope that the seller has been honest.

Make sure you do your own research before viewing or bidding on a car. You may be surprised as to how much information you can find out online about a vehicle just from having the registration number and manufacturer details. All current and previous MOT’s are now listed online showing if the car passed or failed the MOT test, and also if there were any advisories. This can help you work out what has been done on the car or what may need to be done in the near future.
