before you think that im stupid to think the car is £310, i know that it will increase closer to the end of the auction and whatnot just thinking if its below £2000 might still get it,....but becuase it says cat c...dunno if i should reconsider and keep looking
hmm, well that car is a REPAIRED Cat C - so you wont have to pay for any repairs yourself, it probably WILL sell for less than the equivalent cost of a non accident one but it might be more prone to things like rust if it hasnt been fixed properly.
i sugegst you take a very good look inside before you buy.
keep in mind, that just because it has passed the vic check, it could still potentially be repaired short of acceptable. Same to a lesser extent goes with the MOT. It shouldn't but you've gotta be careful.
Personally I would avoid it because you risk buying a death trap and what you save now you will loose when you come to sell it. Only buy if the inspections say that no structure has been damaged (i.e no welding on the crumple zones etc, all the airbags work etc etc) even then only buy if you don't intend to sell it for a while.
You will save money now but you will have a hard time selling it.
wait til you have had a car and start learning about all of their pitfalls and stuff
i;ve bought 4 cars personally and been driving for around 3 years - the knowledge that i have about cars and buyign cars has gone up MASSIVLEY. part of the reason was because i had various faults with various cars
but on the upside, the last car i bought i spent a good 1 hour checking it all over and was confident with my purchase - so i probably would have been mroe confident buying a cat c as i woudl have known what bits coudl have caused problems etc
The problem tends to be the buyer of the car not knowing enough about the car. which is why you young guns should stay away from cat c's and d's unless oyu are with someone who knows what they are doing.
