Buying a used car? Check it, don't regret it!

A car is often one of the most expensive purchases a person makes in their lifetime. Many individuals and families depend on cars to get to work, to do the school run, to get to supermarkets, and to visit friends and family members.

In some rural communities, cars are essential to daily living; finding a car that is safe, legal, and that fits the bill is of huge importance.

Used cars are the biggest single issue being reported to the Citizens Advice consumer service in Scotland – it deals with over 4,700 used car problems a year.

November 4th 2013 marks the start of National Consumer Week. We’re using it to launch a month-long campaign to raise awareness about buying a used car.
