Buying Cars Online

Disadvantages of Buying Online

Despite the apparent convenience and cost-effectiveness of buying online, there is some scepticism amongst observers in the motor industry:

  • Many dotcom companies in all industries have failed this year
  • Long delivery delays have given some web sites a bad name
  • You can’t test drive a car you find on the Internet.
  • You can’t get under the bonnet of a second hand car – you have to trust your Internet dealer
  • Independently imported cars currently fetch less money when sold than cars bought through UK franchised dealers
  • You may be pressurised to take out finance deals, warranties, service contracts and breakdown cover. These could eat into the saving you made on the car purchase.
  • Some of the most popular sites can be difficult to access
