Re: Can a second hand car have too few miles?!

If someone was to turn up at my door talking about wanting tanks of fuel and similar crap id escort them off the property.

The way to do a deal is to keep it simple,work on the price of the car as is,warts and all.If the warts arnt palatable,you shouldn't be there.Starting to get into them making repairs just complicates things,makes more journeys nessercary,and leaves reasons to fall out later.

By the time ive got to see a car,im pretty aware of what im getting and who im getting it from,the later is important.I will have also already have screwed the price down,and only change that if the car isn't as described,but I cant remember the last time I turned up and it wasn't which is why im more than prepared to travel for the right car.
I never ever use dealers,and I always get back what I pay or more, after 18 months of use.
