The car in question has been driven for at least a year and a half, i may make an offer for this car but would insurance be higher?

The car works perfectly fine and is repaired

I bought a car which had been cat c write off, insurance was no extra, the only thing that was affected was its resale value, a dealer refused to take it as a trade in
^^^ what this guy said, if you have a crash they wont pay much probably £20 depending on the car.

I know someone who was miss sold a car, she had an accident and the insurance company only offered her £20 quid for it as the price of the car has already been paid for the when it had an accident originally. Insurance companies wont pay twice for a car that has already been paid for. Obviously the better the car the more your likely to receive.

Cat C means that it has suffered serious damage at some time.
