Should I get a vehicle check done before I buy a car from a garage?

I'm thinking of buying a car from a local garage. They offer a full MoT and six-month warranty, they also have excellent reviews. Should I still pay for a vehicle check or will they have done those before they sell the car?

They are openly offering you a warranty that meets their normal liability of six months from date of sale, so I don't think you need a vehicle inspection. Always worth carrying out a status/title/finance check, though: www.honestjohn.co.uk/carcheck/
