‘Service History Looked Legitimate’

I decided to use Motorcheck.ie to run a vehicle report on a car I was about to purchase from a dealer in November 2011.

At first, everything about the car seemed perfect. I had test driven the car extensively, and visually inspected the car thoroughly. I had also gone through the service history booklet, and was satisfied that the car “ticked all the boxes”. The mileage was low for a car of its age, and the vehicle was spotlessly clean and drove very well. I was so satisfied with what I had seen that I put a deposit on the car and arranged a date to pick it up the following week.

It was really out of curiosity, that I decided to run the Motorcheck report after I had put down the deposit. I suppose that I wanted to know the history of the car I was about to purchase.

I was completely shocked to discover that the Motorcheck.ie report showed odometer discrepancies on the car, which was suggesting it might have been clocked! I immediately didn’t want to believe the report, as I had geared myself up for purchasing the car I had always wanted. However the dates of sale of the car, and the mileage readings didn’t add up, and alarm bells were going off in my head.

I phoned the dealer right away, and got them to check it out. The service history book looked legitimate, so the Motorcheck report came as a big surprise to both of us. I was too concerned to let it go, and decided to investigate the issue thoroughly.

In the end, it turned out that the car had been clocked by a previous owner, and not the dealer. I received my deposit back, and the dealer returned the car. I was so relieved that I had taken the time to run the Motorcheck report! After this experience, I will never purchase a car without first running a Motorcheck report.

I have since purchased a car that was even better than the one I had first set my sights on. Thankfully the Motorcheck on this car turned out fine!!

I am very grateful to Motorcheck for the info. it provided me with, and would certainly recommend anybody buying a car to run a full vehicle report. You never know what you might discover! For the sake of €20 or €30 it could save you thousands in the long run…”
