RIsk, yes. High risk? Depends on your own personal risk level.Not from a dealer, then? I have bought my last several cars as one year olds from main dealers. No complaints.
Has the risk element been eliminated from places like autotrader now, then? Buying 'privately' always used to have a high risk (bullshit) element.
I’ve got a Corolla estate and it’s a fantastic car. First Hybrid I’ve owned and can’t fault the fuel economy. I went through motorpoint who sometimes offer good deals. Comes with servicing and warranty too.Any tips on places to buy a second hand car? Cazoo?Cinch?Car Giant? Etc etc.
Looking for a Toyota Hybrid Estate Auris or Corolla.
I think it shut over covid, landlord wanted too much and the guy sacked it off.Locally have always found Jeffries/unbeatablecar pretty good……like the fact you can wander round and try various makes/models. Have had several cars from them over the years.
The Crawley one closed, maybe billing hurst is still openI think it shut over covid, landlord wanted too much and the guy sacked it off.
I think he still sells a few cars through the website but isn’t what it was.
Is a real shame as I liked their range and quality.

Turning circle of a cross-channel ferry
SatNav dreadfully slow and sometimes picks routes that are a mystery
Fuel economy is worse than the Fiesta diesel wifey used to own
Visibility is poor
Slow throttle response when pulling out.
|When the battery is fully charged you get about 2 miles before the petrol motor kicks in. If there's hills or go over 40, forget it.
Climate control constantly needs adjusting, set to 18 it'll go full chat until you're freezing. turning up a degree or two makes it start blowing hot.
When driving in town it will, randomly, bleep the collision warning system.
Oh, and there's a button marked "EV" which, when pressed makes the display say "EV mode not available"
I'd never bought a car from a dealer until very recently. They're the only ones left bodging stuff up. At least the lower end . . . Trying to make a profit, or earn/steal a living. If you suspect anything may need doing, assume it does into the cost, because they will NOT have done it.
