Dealer or seller?
If you have decided to buy a used car, you’ll need to decide whether you want to get one from a dealer or a private seller. Buying from a private seller can be a big risk, and if you do discover a fault that wasn’t pointed out to you when you purchased the car you may face a tough battle to put things right. However, dealers are legally obliged to let you return a car if you do find such a fault, due to the Sale of Goods Act.
Examining a car
When you do go out to look at a car, make sure you’re given the chance to examine it in dry and light conditions where faults cannot be masked. Always take a good look at the paperwork and make sure it matches up with everything you have been told about the vehicle. You’ll also need to make sure that you’ll be able to stretch to the fuel and running costs as well as the initial price tag. Navigate the market sensibly and you should be able to get a great deal.
