Buying used car in Ireland

Is it preferable to buy a used car from dealer or from individual sellers?

Advantages of Buying a Used Car From a Dealer . Most dealers thoroughly inspect their vehicles and replace any worn parts before putting them up for sale. They also offer a much better level of service - especially after the sale. Apart from that dealers will provide the warranty. As per my experience better go with dealer always.

If you’re looking for the best possible purchase price, you’re likely to find it from a private seller rather than a dealer. Instead, private sellers are usually trying to sell an old vehicle so they can buy a new one, and that means they’re often more willing to negotiate just to ensure that the car is sold quickly. If you are going for less price, you can go with private seller, but risk is no warranty to your car. So better take a authentic mechanic to inspect the car thoroughly before make a deal. Hope this input will be useful. Good luck for your car purchase :slight_smile:
