When buying from a private seller you do not have the same consumer rights as you do when buying a car from dealership, it is very much a case of ‘buyer beware. However it is an offence for a seller to withhold or provide misleading information about the car so with this in mind there are important questions you must ask.
Has the car ever been crashed?
Has any bodywork been done to the vehicle ?
Has any major mechanical work been done on the vehicle ?
What is the correct mileage for this vehicle?
How many previous owners has the vehicle had?
Is there any outstanding finance on the vehicle?
When was the last full service carried out on the vehicle?
