rrowney said:I am buying from new car discount, one that is pre registered. A Couple of things to know firstly they keep the log book for the first 6 months. This means that some insurance companies will not insure you as you are not the registered keeper. But the savings are alot better than I could get from my local dealers. My worry is getting warranty work done.
brucie said:yes i have a sportage on order from them i originally ordered a hyundai ix35 in aug last year but they told me in december that they were getting loads of hassle and no delivery dates from hyundai so they cancelled the order i then ordered a sportage 18th dec with a provisional date of march/april but that date has slipped until late may still have my doubts but keeping my fingers crossed they get the car to me soon.
suttonseven said:Agreed that the V5 does not prove legal ownership (only thatthepersonnamed on it is the registered keeper)and also agree that the DVLA will issue a new V5 in certain circumstances but the simplefact remains that if you buy from an Internet Broker and he goes bust without paying for the car the dealer who he bought the car from will want the car back and I suspect the dealer will win. Whatever happens you will probably end up with a legal case to argue with possible legal expenses incurred trying to keep "your" new car if it goes wrong. It isonly he same as innocently buying a stolen car and when the truth is discoveredhaving itrepossessed by the owner (or insurance company who paid out on it). The seller in both cases had not paid for the car thus the legal owner quite rightly wants it back.
