3 Clocked Cars and an Ex-Taxi

4 Motorchecks on 4 Passats… 3 clocked, one a taxi and finally the car I was after was acquired with the piece of mind provided by Motorcheck that it was not imported, clocked, crashed, written off, stolen etc.

My search started with a lovely Volkswagen Passat Estate I drove in Newtownabbey, near Belfast. Gorgeous looking car, drove lovely. 400 sterling deposit put down on it to secure it – home and and dry I thought. Foolishly I waited to do my Motorcheck after I had put the deposit on the car and it turned out that the car was well clocked. As it turned out I never got my deposit back but the piece of mind that I had not purchased a car I could have trust in was value in itself.

Next up was another lovely Passat Estate, Dublin this time but I had the wisdom to Motorcheck it before I went up for a test drive, turned out it was imported & well clocked again!

Third up was a very nearly purchased Passat I looked at, in Tipperary this time, grand, only down the road from where I live I thought. Surely I’m gonna score myself a new motor this time? Thankfully turned out not be be… I went with a friend of mine who was another Passat driver to take it for a spin. It checked out lovely. Great condition, throughly looked after and all seemed well until I went home and Motorcheck’ed it, Ex-Taxi this time! “no !! , Am I ever going to get my Passat?! I thought immediately” which quickly turned into feelings of calm after I read further into the Motorcheck report and realised that the car was again clocked and had – who knows how many miles on it!

Finally passat number 4, Motorcheck number 4 and a slagging from the guys in work that I must have had shares in Motorcheck at this stage! Black Passat Saloon, Tipperary again, my home county! Wisely Motorcheck’ed it before I  went to have a look, NOT imported, NOT clocked, NOT a Taxi, could this be it?? and it was…. and it turned out to be a great car that I have been driving ever since.

It might have taken a few years off my life getting it but it was worth it in the end and thanks to Motorcheck I didn’t end up with a car that, down the road (excuse the pun!), might give me some big unwanted surprises.

Thanks Motorcheck!”
