Buying a car from Motorpoint - anyone got experience of this?

I'm in the market for another car and I've been looking at a car supermarket called Motorpoint who almost without exception are cheaper on like for like cars than any other seller (including private sales).

Having had an initial discussion with them it seems the reason their cars are so cheap is that they have generally missed their 1st service (usually due around 12000 miles and the cars have mainly done circa 14k to 16k miles) and therefore the balance of the manufacturors warrenty "could" be invalidated!

I'm really dithering because I'm fairly risk averse but there is a credit crunch going on and the chance to save between £1k & £2k on like for like cars is very appealing.

I'm not looking for you guys to source me cheaper cars (at the moment I'm looking at Mondeo 1.8lx or Vectra Life estate 1.8) I'm just really interested in anyones first hand experience of dealing with Motorpoint (I've seen mixed message board reviews) but I trust you guys on here more!

any feedback much appreciated and rep for any useful nuggets

cheers

Graham
