M & S Car Sales

261A Ponteland Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE5 3EL, UK – 0191 286 3633

I have used M&S Motors since 2010 and bought various cars over the years. They have a good selection of cars for sale to suit all budgets. They are wonderful, very honest and open. (Which is very rare I grant you) Their knowledge is great and if they say work needs to be done you can believe that they are being truthful. I once had a small issue and called in. They looked at the car and sorted the issue, and did not charge. I was so grateful I put a donation into their staff social fund. Very nice people, very honest and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Highly recommended!

Always good value had a few cars off them over the years and they do all my repairs always competitive with costs great garage to deal with

Albany Cars of Gosforth

14 The Garth, Newcastle upon Tyne NE3 4LL, UK – 0191 285 1993

Very friendly and helpful. The car I bought turned out to need replaced front discs and pads within a week, which was not great. However the seller paid 70% of the costs. Nearly 1 year in and the car drives like new.

Fantastic customer care and sorted me with a beutiful car. Would definately recomend

What are you rights when your buy a used car?
The Citizen's Advice Bureau have an excellent and comprehensive section on their website. If you find something wrong after purchasing a used car It’s worth knowing that you’ll still have legal rights even if you don’t do the proper checks. If there’s something wrong with your used car you may have a legal right to a repair or some or all of your money back.

Make sure a trader is trustworthy
If you’re buying from a trader look for an established firm with links to trade associations like the Retail Motor Industry Federation or a sign that says they follow The Motor Ombudsman's code of practice look for a trader with cars inspected by an independent engineer or motoring organisations.

Buying from an auction
Auctions are the riskiest way of buying a used car as you probably won’t have the legal protection that you have buying through a trader. Ensure that you read the auction house’s T and Cs before buying a car.

Check a car’s history

Check the car’s details with the DVLA
  • Ask the seller for the car’s registration number
  • MOT test number
  • mileage
  • make and model
Use the DVLA’s free online vehicle information checker to make sure what the seller tells you matches the DVLA’s records.

Check the MOT and history
You should check that MOT tests have been done regularly throughout the car’s history. Check this on GOV.UK. This is a free service.

Get a private history check.
These will cost up to £20 – but they can be worth it! This will give you valuable information about serious problems the car might have including if:
the car has been stolen
the seller still owes money on the car
the car has been in a serious accident
the car is showing the correct mileage
the car has been written off

Inspect the car and take a test drive
You should arrange to view the car in daylight, preferably when it’s dry - it’s harder to spot damage to the car if it’s wet. It’s a good idea to meet at a private seller’s house so that if something goes wrong after you’ve bought the car, you’ll have a record of their address.

The AA has a useful checklist for what to look out for when inspecting a used car and its paperwork. Make sure you ask about the car’s service history.

Always take the car for a test drive.
