When buying a used car you must consider “fair wear and tear”. Fair wear and tear occurs when normal usage causes acceptable deterioration to a vehicle. You can measure this against the price of your car when it was brand new. A used car is a part worn device. It is not as good as new - this is why it is vastly cheaper. We ask our customers to be reasonable with their expectations. If something goes wrong with your car and it is outside of the warranty term, it may still be worth getting in touch as we have specialist repairers who support us. If you are unsure regarding any aspect of your purchase please do not hesitate to ask us. We are here to help.
