    say the car jumped out of 3rd gear, or wouldnt go into 4th etc... as the owner driving the buyer, you just miss those gears and drive around the problem, but if you drive it for yourself, you'll soon find out if such problems exist.

    better to find out and walk away than buy blind and realise half way home
    If someone was skipping a gear I would ask why.

    it was an example, all im saying is that if you know the car has a problem, you drive around it, so many things can be covered up if you know where they are.

    drive the car yourself to make sure they're not hiding anything

    Are you insured on it?
    Yeah I'm insured on it, it's a nice car just a shame I work on Tottenham Court Road so no chance of ever driving it to work.
