The AA has come out to speak about ‘too good to be true’ deals given by dealerships up and down the UK. It seems that around 50 per cent of those asked would be encourage to buy a car if it was up for sale for considerably less than its market value. 
 
The AA said: "buyers should never be tempted by vehicles advertised for less than 70% of their market price, as a suspicious bargain could turn out to be a clone or worse, leaving the buyer severely out of pocket," said a spokesperson.”
 
Amanda Moore of the AA added her opinion to the mix: "It's easy to be tempted by a vehicle with a rock bottom price, but buyers need to think about it from the seller's perspective – would they sell a car for a third of its value?
 
"Most cars masquerading as a bargain have something to hide. We urge buyers to conduct a vehicle history check to protect themselves from the risk of buying a vehicle that could be stolen, cloned, on outstanding finance or an insurance write-off,” she said.
 
So there you have it: don’t be fooled! You have been warned!
