The Trust also suggests the owner consider the cost of repairs to be worth it, especially if the car is new and is on the roadside.
The Trust recommends that anyone looking for a second car for the first time to check the following:How much time has passed since the car was last used?

Is the owner aware of the potential for damage to the car?
What kind of safety equipment is installed in the car to ensure it is safe for a crash?

The Trust’s research found that over two-thirds of UK households own a car, with over half owning a second or first-hand motor vehicle.
