Always take a test drive
When you do go out to view a used car, you should do so in dry and light conditions where faults cannot be hidden by rain and darkness. Make sure you examine the paperwork with care to see whether all you’ve been told about the car is reflected by the documents. Always take the car for a test drive and perform an emergency stop so you can see how it handles when faced with danger.
Don’t take risks
Chances are you’re wondering whether to buy from a dealer or private seller? Buy from a dealer and you’ll be protected by the Sale of Goods Act, which means it will be much easier to return the car if you discover a fault. Private sellers are permitted to sell you cars not fit for the road as long as they point out the condition of the car, but many have claimed to have disclosed such information in the past even when they haven’t. As it can be so hard to put things right when sold a faulty car by a private seller, it’s usually best to purchase from a dealer who will have to take action if you discover a fault.
