Hello, i need to find and buy a car before thursday the 5th june. i moved away from home and left my car behind and now my parents have told me its a write off due to rusty old parts. and i need it for a big trip i have planned for next thursday. I havent stopped crying all day!

I had a 1996 ford fiesta, im looking for the same or similar my budgets less than 600. North east or london areas are both easy for me to arrange viewings but im willing to go anywhere!

please help!! :(:(

couldnt you just rent a car...for the trip I mean...just until you can look around and buy something?
or can anyone lend you a car? Parents ?


I'd say rent one too, (Cheap from the apprentice. :thumbsup:)

atleast you wont need to sort out insurance between now and then too :)
#8
no, see theres the trip, and that the whole point in me going home is to collect mycar to bring back with me. and the money wasted on renting could buy me a car. i just need new places to search and new ideas. i dont know what kind to even search for

Autotrader and ebay are both good bets to be able to find something local to you, it's perhaps obvious but I'd also recommend looking at local papers if possible in the classifieds there - in this digital age not everyone looks at them so you might find something decent that's been overlooked. Especially as some garages want to get rid of tradeins cheap rather than having to pay to have them scrapped.

If you have someone who's good with cars you can take with you I'd highly recommend it, with the age and price of car you're looking at any faults you miss (which is easily done unless you know what you're looking for) could end up costing you dearly. I'd also be careful about rushing into anything, especially if you're after a car promptly it's easy to get carried away and buy a car too quickly. Don't base everything on mileage, most of the cars you're considering are probably going to be quite a high mileage however condition is very important. A car that's been well looked after but high miles (especially motorway miles) is normally a better buy than a car that's relatively low miles but it's been thrashed round town for every one of those miles.

The parkers site is a good site for checking on what common faults there are to look out for on secondhand cars.

Good luck!

He was meaning to buy a part exchange, not to part exchange a car in - with various laws for scrapping cars if a garage has a car they took in trade in which they can't sell alongside their normal cars they offer them for a low price to get rid of them quickly. A prime example is Jeremy Clarkson's V6 Volvo saloon for just 1 pound(!) which most amusingly despite being crashed into a wall at 40mph was one of the few cars still running at the end of a challenge (something much more expensive cars didn't). That's an extreme one but others do exist.
