Car inspections? - Shigg
Hi,

This is a question prompted by the stolen recovered thread. Has any member got any points or stories about car inspections prior to buying? Did they put you off a car? Did they pick up any serious problems? That kind of thing.

Sorry, Shigg - being a cheapskate, I always trust my gut-feeling as I don't want to pay someone £100+ to tell me what I have already found (mostly) for myself. So far my hands haven't been burnt, perhaps just a bit warmed sometimes. We have also heard tales of people who have paid for a check and later complained that a bad fault was not detected. There is always some risk!

Of course, you could always use those garages which sell cars "already inspected"!

AT,

I've always given cars a look over myself, once took so long my brother asked if I was buying it or doing an MOT. Well the reason for asking is that I intend to change cars in the summer and will be spending all I can afford (not much really but don't want to blow it all in). I wondered about the quality of the AA inspection and possibilities of claiming if they get it wrong.
