I am just reading the Daily Telegraph of Monday 1 August 2016. David Koch's column "Money Saver HQ" is headed "Savvy wheeler dealer", the article suggests that a prospective buyer of a (used) car should put toggether a list of questions to ask the seller. My advice is put together a list of questions certainly, but obtain the answers, from trustworthy sources - not the seller! For example he suggests to ask about the fuel economy. You cannot even trust the manufacturer to provide truthful information, a good example is Volkswagen and Mitsubishi. Sellers tell you only what they want you to know. In fact it is more likely they point out a small problem to built trust, in order for you to over look a major problem. Unless its a one owner vehicle, the seller would not know even know about any previous accidents. Experience (I have inspected over 3,300 cars) tells me it is best not to ask the seller anything. The likelihood to get the truth is minimal at best. A PPSR check will only reveal if a car has been written off, not whether it has been in a accident or not. Best ask David Koch for Financial advice and get the car inspected by a car inspection service like Car Solutions. I have been in the car industry for over 40 years, I know what I am talking about.
