Anyone buying a 10 year old car knows perfectly well that it might (and probably does) have issues. That's just good old fashioned common sense. Anyone claiming otherwise is either lying through their teeth, or is too naive to be buying a car in the first place.

In the UK the buyer from a trader is protected by the Sale of Goods Act.for any immediate problems The warning for a buyer, particularly when buying used cars is to know their rights Any 10 year old car will have some issues coming up. Unfortunately the average buyer does not always understand that simple fact

Our culture has got very good at believing that new is always best! Just because a car is ten years old doesn't mean it's about to have major issues (though of course it might!). Similarly plenty of three year old cars have major faults, often with some of the more recently introduced equipment such as Diesel Particulate Filters, Piezo Injectors, ECU controlled everything etc etc.

a car that old will have problems anyone who dosen't know that will eventually find out! however if you are a mechanic like me :) you buy old cars and fix them your self and drive them for many happy miles. I bought a 2000 ford focus with 120,0000miles for $1000 (4 or five years ago) over the time I had it I probably only spent another $2000 maintaining it I sold it with 170,000miles for $500 that's only $2,500 for 50,000 miles of never being left on the side of the road and getting over 30mpg! for some people its a deal to have all the work I did to it done at a shop would have costed $6,000+ easy! So it just depends on the person.
