Simon Emery's Deals on Wheels usually has some in and apart from today he's open during August. His prices are fair and his warranties are excellent.

Check out his Facebook page for pics of current stock.

Have you looked on the Facebook groups?

Buying from a dealer can cost you at least double the price you can get privately.

Aah but you don't get warranties in any form when buying privately, so it can actually cost you an awful lot more in the long term regardless of how good the mechanic is that (hopefully) checked it over for you!!

Yes, you take a chance, but we bought a Pajero from an advert on a forum that no longer exists, for €900. One of the dealers mentioned above was selling one the same age at the time and was asking €4,500.

We could have fitted a brand new engine and still been quids in. As it happens ours is still going strong 3 years later!

I understand entirely that you pay more from a dealer as they have overheads to cover, but some of them are asking way over the odds IMHO.

Personal choice as always - we've had 4 cars from Deals on Wheels over 13 years including my 2 Pajeros(each time he's taken back as p/x) and never a problem, doubt you'd be that lucky with 4 private buys!

:grin:

Indeed, but, given my example above, I could have thrown fours cars away and bought replacements privately and still been better off than going through a dealer.

My point is not so much about whether or not you should buy from a dealer, but rather more about the high prices that some of them charge.

I used to work in the motor trade in the UK, we would look to make about £1000 on a car, I took my Pajero pinin to a garage in Cyprus, they offered me 1000 euro for it but had one on display at 7000 same age, I advertised it for sale at 3000 and could have sold it ten times over I had so many calls.

I would advise looking on Bazeraki website and, if you consider buying, have it checked out by a dealer first at your own expense, well worth the effort.

Gary.
