Ringing garages about cars...

...when you're a useless girl.

Tomorrow I have to ring a garage about a car that my Dad might want to buy (me).

What am I supposed to ask them?

He told me I had to ask about it. The only question I can think of to ask is: 'Is it shiny?' That's my main concern.

I need help.

mileage
extras
discount

any flaws in bodywork = discount

I already drive!

Are you coming on to me again?! Godsake, I told you last time...NO.

It's a Fiesta ST. I am told it's blue and has done 4700 miles.

The thing is, are they really going to tell me if it's got scratches on it?

No such thing as a useless girl. Behave yourself.
What make ( marque for car geeks!) is it?

Thinks - Surely you already made it clear to your dad what car you wanted?????
Oh Ok blue Fiesta, less than 5K.
Only question to ask is - when can I test drive it?

Yes, they have to, but you need to have a really good look at it and point out anything you notice and then they will fix it for you.

I just let him pick it, it's easier. Apparently they're nice. The only thing I'm interested in is it being shiny....I don't see why I have to ask any other questions!

what ever you do dont part with any money before seeing it !

as others have said: Mileage, service history, mot history (failures/advises etc) of which you can search online if you have the reg number & the log book (v5) number or the test certificate number ]Checking Mot History, interior,spare wheel/jack I've seen a few where they have been "robbed", tyres-tread depths ect, the list is endless.

Have not read the thread, but love your question

deffo an extra. its just under £300 to have both side and over bonnet stripes added :thumbsup:

but she will need to ask dealer if they have been added or not as they are quite popular

Shiny is not important. Sans stripes is important - you obviously aren't allowed to have a car with stripes on.
You are supposed to ask about driver and service history but with 5k miles - it's not important.
