Purchasing my first car?

Hi guys.

I am looking to purchase my first used car to get me through my test. I have seen a little Hundai i10 1.0 at a used car dealership in Sheffield: Please can anyone tell me of their experiences or any pro's and con's of buying from a dealer opposed to buying privately?

Thanks for any help!

Pros of buying from a dealer:

- Generally more trustworthy
- Warranty

Pros of buying privately:
- Cheaper

Personally I'd rather buy used cars privately, but the newest car I've owned was a 2007. Cars within the last 5 years or so would be worth going to a dealer for, especially a manufacturer one.
