    What a useful article, with some great tips to avoid being ripped off with a duff second hand car deal. Now’s the time that many people change their cars for all kinds of reasons, be it coming into some extra money for Christmas or via a work bonus, or simply feeling the need to upgrade in time for possibly harsh winter driving conditions in the weeks ahead. Yet I firmly believe that the desire to buy a car must never distract from the importance of checking thoroughly what you’re buying; hence why I was so pleased to read this article.

    One easy way to avoid being scammed is to buy your car through reputable used car dealers, or a used car supermarket like Car World in Peterborough (http://www.carworld.uk.com ), where all the cars are vetted and put through thorough checks before being put on sale. Customers can test-drive the vehicles they are interested in first, to add to the peace of mind on offer. Sounds like a great way forward to me.
