Buying a Used Car? Check it don't regret it
5:03pm Tuesday 8th October 2013 in Opinion
Buying a Used Car? Check it don't regret it National Consumer Week starts 4 November 2013 and the CAB are launching a month-long campaign to raise awareness about buying a used car. More than 80,000 people contact the CAB each year with used car problems making it the biggest consumer issue.
When you buy a used car, your rights will depend on whether you bought the car from a dealer, from a private seller, at an auction or over the internet.
Before purchase, it is worth carrying out a check to discover whether the car has been the subject of an insurance write off, stolen, or whether there is outstanding finance from a previous sale. Mileage checks may be available. You may wish to get the vehicle inspected for mechanical faults by an expert, but there are charges for these services.
