‘The History Was Too Suspicious’

In November my husband was involved in a road accident, nobody hurt thankfully, but his car was written off. Our insurance company managed to sort everything out very quickly and we had our cheque within 10 days of the accident. We needed to quickly get another car, as we both worked outside the town where we live and without a car each, life was very difficult.

We searched the internet, dealers and owners, looking for a suitable car. I spotted an ideal car, the same make as our old one, for sale at a great price. I phoned the seller, who was a very nice woman, who said she needed a quick sale as she only had the car a couple of months, but it was too big for her to drive. We agreed to go and see the car and fell in love with it. We paid a small deposit and agreed to collect the car from her two days later.

The lady seemed very genuine and we were on two minds whether to even bother doing a motor check. Eventually after lots of discussions, about “wasting money” to check the car out, we logged onto motorcheck.ie and were amazed at the findings.

We were delighted to see everything with the finance was in order, everything looked great, until we came to the mileage on the car. At the time we were going to purchase there was 79,200 KM on the car, yet the last time the car mileage was registered, which was six months before this, there was an extra 102,000KM. We immediately knew we could not buy this car, as the history was much too suspicious. We contacted the seller, who apparently knew nothing about this and she agreed to give us back our deposit.

In the end we were very glad we had done a motorcheck, as if we had not, we would have purchased a car with a hell of a lot more mileage on it than appeared, which could have been a nightmare financially. Also if we had went to sell this car on, we would have received very little for it. I would highly recommend using motorcheck to check out your new purchase.
