  • I just buy off car people. Then I know the cars been looked after and they have good intentions on letting the car go to the right buyers

  • regarding sold as seen: if you buy a car from someone and either there is an issue they didn't know about or something happens, then you have no recourse. However, if the owner has deliberate misled you then they have misrepresented the car. To deliberately mislead you, the owner must actively lie, rather than omit the truth. So if they know there is an issue it is not deliberately misleading if they don't offer the information up to you. It IS deliberate misleading if you ask "any issues with the car at the moment?" and they lie saying there isn't an issue, then you have some recourse. Always, always, always ask when privately buying a car "any issues whatsoever with the car?". Always, always, always use a contract as the guys describe and always list and known issues you've discussed.

  • I dont have a car. Bit om pretty sure that if that guy (who wants to like the car for longer) should buy a shitbox, that barely runs. It will have longer time with it because he will be spending time fixing it, maybe even start to love it, once he fixes it, he saw his/her inside.

  • When you buy a used car from a private seller there is no right to a refund -it is effectively sold as seen regardless of what has been said. As for buying from a dealer (normal sale) they have a legal responsibility under consumer contract law, so stating 'sold as seen' does not negate their legal duties (what Jack was saying basically) - however in practice if someone says its sold as seen they are not going to be very receptive to your requests for a return/refund etc meaning the only way to get them to do it is to threaten legal action, which is costly, time consuming and stressful. It's usually only stated about cheaper/older cars which the delaer isnt going to want to make a loss on fixing any potential problems. At an auction all cars are sold as seen, even if sold by dealers, but for ebay the terms of the auction is that they must be as described, so you can back out if there is anything wrong - but must do so before you part with your money - so ideally check the car before you bid, but if not check the car against the ad when you collect.

  • Biggest annoyance when on cruise control: You overtake someone and some other bellend hoons right up your trumpet, you pull back in after finishing the overtake and the moron then pulls in front of you and then slows down. Absolute fuckhats.

  • On your topic of Cruise Control... you can never have a peaceful journey at 70. You have to go for random numbers. I find 74mph works best, or 63mph. Randomly specific but try it, it works.

  • Hi Guys Have a suggestion for your podcast. The 20 questions section, you could call one of your listeners and guess the car they own. They could tell Rory what the car is beforehand so they cannot cheat and you could put a pic of their car in post production. Not only will it allow you lot to have a competition on who guesses the most but will involve your listeners/watchers too.

  • A car buying scam? Oh I thought you all were gonna mention the EV car purchase scam? Just think about it people werent driving or buying any cars during lockdown so the government urged people into buying an EV whilst there is no readly infrastructure to support EV's. The government wanted to save the car dealerships so everybody financed one with the government grant.

  • Ethan’s point about cruise control reminds me so much about the numpties I call “the 68 brigade” who travel on the A1 from Newry to Belfast at 68 mph, so when I’m in cruise control at 70 I overtake them. There are two sections of the road with a 60mph speed limit. When there’s no traffic to overtake I take the cruise control down to 60mph, only to be overtaken again by the same car, still doing 68mph... then when the road goes back to 70mph the process just repeats.... these people must do 68mph regardless of any speed limit signs

  • Jack's correct in what he's saying about "Sold As Seen". It genuinely isn't worth it's words even if you're buying from a private seller off a street corner. As a purchaser you are still covered by the same consumer rights as you would be of buying from a dealership, as the car needs to be fit for purpose as advertised. It's far from practical for a purchaser to be able to give a car a full proper going over on a street corner to the point that you're confident it's mechanically sound in every aspect, not to mention 80% of motorists can't fill a tyre or check their oil, therefor the responsibility falls on the seller to be honest in the advert and sale.
