Finding a car
There are many methods you can use to find the right used car for you. You could look at the ads in your local newspaper, browse magazines or simply turn up at the forecourts to see what’s on offer. Buy from a dealer and you’ll be protected by the Sale of Goods Act, which means you shouldn’t struggle to return the vehicle if you do find a problem after you’ve handed over your cash. You won’t get this sort of legal protection if you buy from a private seller. In fact, you may find yourself stuck with a faulty car if they claim they told you about the problems.
Viewing a car
Once you’re ready to view a car, make sure you get to look at it in dry and light conditions where faults cannot be hidden by rain or darkness. Take a long look at the paperwork to make sure all the positive information you’ve been given about the car is backed up by the documents. Taking this steps should help you seal a deal that you won’t come to regret later.
