  1. Hi all, I bought a car from a private seller last week, I found it on gumtree and called the guy advertising it. I asked him about the state of the car and he promised it was in good condition (also have a text from him saying he wouldn't sell a car if there was anything wrong with it). He said he was selling it for his neighbour. I had checked the MOT history online and it had failed on the 16th May, but passed again on the 20th. After speaking a lot with him, as the car was a 2 hour drive away, my parents decided to go and look at it. I couldn't go due to having to go back t

  4. I hope I am going to make sense here. I bought a vehicle yesterday from a CAR SALES place in somerset. It is a Citroen Xsara Picasso Desire . I had paid a deposit on the 12.12.2013 of £100. I had a friend test drive the vehicle just prior to deposit. He thought that it would be a good buy and that it needed the tracking doing immediately and then the advisories later. I went yesterday to take my peugoet to my friend who was buying my car off me. He then drove me to the Carsales. I paid the rest of the money plus the Tax which car sales person had purchased
  5. Hello, I recently bought a 2011 Citreon Berlingo Multispace diesel with 98k on the clock. I paid a deposit on the understanding that the clutch would be fixed. They did fix it and I went to pick up the car a few days later and paid the balance. On the drive home I lost control of the vehicle and had to pull over. I put this down to getting used to the car. As a precaution I put the car in to my garage the following morning. It was found to have play on the steering, shock absorbers at the front were gone, front brake discs excessively worn with 2mm lip and a bald and punctured tyre.
  6. I purchased, just before Xmas a 2nd hand Clio (52 plate) for my daughter. The seller was a 'friend of a friend' and I was informed that the MOT had just expired and 'the car will fly through the next M.O.T.' The seller did not want to take the car to the M.O.T before the sale and wanted cash upfront. After paying for the car, I took the car into a MOT centre the next day and was given the bad news that the car was unfit for the road and I should not have purchased it. There was a long detailed descriptions of the faults on the report (2 pages). I returned the car
  7. Hi, I've read through a lot of posts on here regarding used cars but a lot seems to b dependant on make model and issue with car. I bought an 03 Megane 1.4 16v 32 days ago for £1300, which seemed like decent value. Having had problems with the breaks two weeks later i began to grow uneasy but continued on, later thebreaks just shut out completely whilst i wa driving and nearly caused a severe crash. So i took it to a garage an the mechanic nearly collapsed after an inspection and begged me not to drive it home again. He said the car needed £1700 of work...the following nee
