Can I report a dealer for selling a car at a rip off price?

How much should I pay for a 2008 Kia Picanto automatic with 17,000 miles? I am being told that these are like gold dust and I fear people are willing to pay over the odds. One has just been sold by a garage for £4665 - a 2009 model with 45,000 miles on clock. If this is a rip off should they be reported?

That's an extortionate amount of money for an old Picanto. I'd suggest you look elsewhere. You can't report a dealer for asking high prices, though. We wouldn't pay much more than £1500 privately, even with low miles.
