Re: Car Showroom or Car Auction
Have brought over 20 cars from auction, never brought a lemon yet. Most auctions (if your spending a few grand) give you an hour to check for major faults etc, even if your unlucky enough to drop on a bad one you can always put it back through a week later. you might take a hit of a few hundred pounds but the money you are saving is worth the small risk. The worst cars iv'e had have been from dealers. The way I look at it is a lot of people use a dealer/used car garage to offload ther p/x because they would have trouble selling it private because of problems etc, used car warranties are not worth the paper there wrote on unless your buying from a main dealer or major used car retailer, but then you are really paying through the nose. To be honest you can't beat buying private, you can test drive the car, talk to the owner, barter down the price and hopefully drive away with a bargain.
