Some of the most popular used cars Scotland can be found at City Cars. Buying new and used both come with a host of advantages, but if you’re on a budget or simply don’t want your vehicle to lose 40% of its value within one year, buying second-hand could be the ideal move. It’s usually wise and less risky to buy from a dealer as opposed to a private seller as you’ll be protected by the Sale of Goods Act if you opt for the former. There are many reputable dealers in Scotland that can help you secure an excellent deal on a used car, no matter what your needs, tastes and requirements are.
Viewing your car
When it comes to viewing a car, you should do so in dry and light conditions so you can spot any faults not pointed to you by the dealer or seller. Ask as many relevant questions as you feel you need to and take a good look at the paperwork to ensure all the positive things you have been told about the vehicle are backed up by the documents. If anything seems too good to be true, you may wish to look elsewhere. Why not ask a more experienced friend or family member to join you on your search for a used car if you don’t have the confidence to go it alone?
Find a reputable dealer
Most dealers belong to trade associations. Treating you poorly can have devastating consequences for them, and a dealer could be kicked out of the network they belong to by failing to adhere to the terms and conditions they have signed up to. Approach the market with care and there’s every chance you could have years of motoring excellence to look forward to.
