Used car buyers are being advised that before making a purchase they should invest in a thorough check.

Used car buyers are being advised that before making a purchase they should invest in a thorough check.

According to an article this week for komotv.com, a recent study from vehicle history specialists Carfax found a growing number of used cars were "rebuilt wrecks that shouldn't even be on the road" and advises arranging an inspection before buying.

It is reported that "potentially millions of used cars" may have been involved in a crash and refurbished and the site notes that it is wise to insure against this with a vehicle check from a reputable provider.

"Many used car buyers have no clue, because they don't check the title or get the car inspected and hidden damage can be another accident waiting to happen," the site states.

Kitv.com reported this week that recent advice from Consumer Reports said used car buyers, including those with car finance, should consider bringing a friend when buying a second-hand vehicle and that this should be "one who knows cars".
