That little lot may have taken an hour or so of your time, if all is well you will be reassured that you are buying a real bargain and not a real dog.

If you find any problems at all, remember, prices are always negotiable. Either get the vendor to make the repairs or negotiate a suitable reduction in the price to cover the work that needs doing.

As soon as you buy the car get it fully serviced, it may not have been cared for in ages.
