There are many quality used cars for sale in Northampton from reputable dealers. Though it is of course possible to get a great second-hand car from a private seller, it’s worth remembering that you won’t get the valuable protection of the Sale of Goods Act if do go down this route. The Sale of Goods Act makes it easier to return faulty cars if you later find a problem you should have been told about previously, and you will be able to enjoy this protection if you buy from a dealer. No matter what your tastes, requirements and budget are, you should be able to find something that suits thanks to the vast diversity of the market.
Cover all the costs
Do make sure you’ll be able to afford all costs attached to driving any car you’re considering buying. Don’t be swayed by a low price tag alone as you will still need to pay for tax, fuel and insurance. Take a good look at all the paperwork so you can see how well the car has been treated over the years, and make sure the person or dealer selling the vehicle to you is actually named on the documents.
Get more from your car
If you have any important questions, feel free to ask them. The more you know about the car and its history, the easier it will be to reach an informed decision. Once the car is in your possession, stick to the manufacturer guidelines in order to prolong its life. Have it serviced and MOT tested whenever you need to. If you require further peace of mind, why not run a quick car history check? This will tell you whether the car has ever been reported stolen and if there is finance outstanding on it.
