Too good to be true

If youre buying
Be on your guard for cars that look like theyre great value. You might have stumbled on the sale of the century, but chances are its a mistake or a con. Criminals prey on peoples desire for a bargain, and buyers have been robbed while going to view a car that looked like it was exceptional value for money.

If youre selling
You might be eager to sell your car, but dont sell yourself short. If you advertise it at too low a price, people might think your cars not worth it. The same goes for over-ambitious adverts, as buyers will just think youre being unrealistic, and not even worth a call.
