There are many good reasons for buying second-hand cars. Heading down the second-hand route can help you miss out on the 40% depreciation drop that most cars see after just a year on the road. Choose your car wisely and do your homework and you should be able to drive away having made a deal you won’t come to regret later. It’s also a good idea to buy from a dealer rather than a private seller in order to be protected by the Sale of Goods Act. The Act means you shouldn’t find it tough to return the car if you find a fault not pointed out to you before you bought the car, but it won’t protect you if you buy from a private seller.

Look at the documents
It’s extremely important to examine all documents related to the car carefully before you sign on the dotted line. You’ll need to make sure the person or dealer selling you it is actually named on the documents, and you should make sure evidence of a full service history is in place. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about the car and its history. You may even wish to run a history check. History checks are cheap to run and will tell you whether the car has ever been damaged in a crash or reported stolen and if it has existing finance on it
Find a suitable motor
Make sure you take a good look at the car in dry and light conditions where faults cannot be hidden. Take it for a test drive and conduct an emergency stop so you can see how it handles in dangerous situations. No matter what your tastes and needs are, you shouldn’t find it too hard to find something that suits on the local market.
