Re: Would you buy a car from Ebay
I have bought 2 cars on ebay, bought and sold 1 motorbike all with various results.
Bought a Corsa 2 years ago for my daughter to learn to drive with cost £1,000, has been brilliant and now is being passed to my younger daughter.
Bought a Ssangyong Musso (big 4 wheel drive thing like a Shogun), lasted about 10 months and died cost £2k sold £700.
Motorbike bought 4k bargain, sold 2 years later for 4k.
We as a company have also bought/sold about 20 cars bike as a trader...again with various results
Would suggest a few points, check V5 is with the person selling, check their ID as they can say they are Mr... but its stolen. INSIST it has a NEW MOT, as this will show up areas of concern re condition.
Check for water in oil on dip stick, and oil in radiator water.
Ensure they confirm ALL damage and items of concern. If still unhappy walk away but you risk bad feedback and a long trip for nothing.
Frankly if the car is under £2k dont expect great things, if its over that ie £4k plus then we always use the car centre in Scrubs Lane in London.
