LAST year more than 7.2 million used cars were sold but three-quarters of a million motorists may have handed over their money without driving the car out first — or even starting the engine.
Recent research by webuyanycar.com on more than 1,000 car owners has revealed that more than 10 per cent of car buyers didn’t take a test drive or turn the engine on when buying their last car. Less than six per cent merely turned the engine on.
Slightly more than 10 per cent of new car buyers surveyed didn’t take an equivalent model for a test drive.
In total that could mean a million motorists buy a car each year having little idea how the car performs or even if it has problems that could plague them further down the road.
