I’m looking buy my first car and have been advised that buying outside my city would be a bad idea as if there’s any problems it would be hard to go back to the dealer and get it sorted. However, my city isn’t the biggest and therefore buying only within my city massively limits my buying choices. Is it a big problem to buy outside your area and what would be your maximum buying radias?
Hi Rhys. Legally you have the same rights regardless of where you buy your car in the UK. So if the vehicle is faulty and you want to reject, it doesn’t matter if the dealership is next door or on the other side of the country.
However, it’s obviously easier to pop into the dealership if you have an issue if the dealer is in your own neighbourhood.
