Bought a used car which I haven't driven!

    I'm interested in this thread to see if the dealer turns out to be genuine.

    Are we allowed the dealer name as so far they sound decent if true ?

    It may be a slightly older car and you may not have spent a massive amount of money at the dealer for a dealer but they did do a deal with you and made a promise so if they are decent they should keep said promise.

    OP please keep us updated on this

    I will post an update as soon as I get the car back which will be in the next few days. I'm also going to get it check by a mechanic.

    I would say if they did and it's a big if, they probably still made money as car was most likely standing them near nothing.

    Nobody wants a 2litre petrol high tax car.

    A bit of a self contradictory comment dont you think :D

    I mean the car would probably be a trade in standing feck all and any cost fixing could still mean a profit or breaking even at least.

    2litre petrol mentioned in Ireland is like saying it's a 6 litre.

    I meant the comment "nobody would buy a 2 litre car with high tax" when youre commenting on someone's post who just bought that exact car :D

    I just went for this car as I only use it as a weekend car, and mainly because this model but in a 2009 car would actually cost me €7000 more over 5 years. I get what you mean though.

    Ah right I get ya.

    I would buy it it's just the way so many think these days.

    1 it must be diesel as it has cheap tax yada yada.

    2 litre is no way a absolute animal or high powered....

    I picked up the car over the weekend. The car received a full engine rebuild and this was outlined in the service book and stamped. The 3 month warranty is also starting from today. None of the issues are present anymore and I was given a number for autoglass to get a free call out to fix the chip in windscreen.

    So far I cannot fault the car company and they have gone against any preconceptions I had about second hand car salesmen. The company is right price cars, I'll see how I get on over the coming weeks and I'll update on this.

    If this turns out to be true, I have to say they deserve great credit. I know of no other garage that would rebuild the engine in a car that cheap. Credit where credit is due.
