Where possible try and buy from a garage local to your area who you know have been there for some time.Ask people you know that have bought used cars from that garage have they been happy with their purchase, if there have been problems with the vehicle did the garage put the problem right, asking all these questions will steer you in the right direction and give you peace of mind when purchasing your used car.
