    How spot if you are buying a cat c right off

    my Saxo was a right off how I fond that out when it was to late was the wheel span was 1.5inch out to the other side all you need to find out is a tape measure! also if you look under the bonnet it will have little bent metal all the way up where the bonnet sits and look where is hard to get to like behind the engine where there could be some welding I mad a bad choice BUT I will never make that same mistake again!

    yes tom but the check i am sure will give you the history of the car, you car would not have been driven home straight after so chances are either insurance was involved or the police were so there would be records.

    If its cheap then walk away, it will have been thrashed.

    they are good cars, but they do need checking carefully, i looked at several for the missus and i was only happy with 1 of them.

    there was lots of little bits, brakes mainly due to sort of puppets who drive them, interior falling apart was another, silly stuff really.
