HPI urges buyers to put their dream car through its paces before they complete the deal www.hpicheck.com

When it comes to buying a used car, taking it for a test drive is vital – not only will it help buyers make sure everything is in working order, it will help them appreciate if the car is suited to their day-to-day driving needs. HPI, the provider of the HPI Check®, is helping used car buyers make an informed decision and has created 10 test driving tips as a guide.

“A test drive is crucial as it will help you identify any driving performance issues with the car. However you also need to check out whether it’s practical for your lifestyle. Can you squeeze three kids, your elderly mother and supermarket shop in the back whilst simultaneously attaching the family’s bikes to the roof? Do you enjoy wild weekends in the wilderness taking your wagon cross country, driving through rutted country roads, or are you a city nipper? These questions should determine the kind of car you decide on,” explains Neil Hodson, Managing Director of HPI.

He continues, “Many buyers will be able to identify with that impatient feeling of wanting to take home a shiny new car, but it’s essential buyers don’t let their heart rule their head and take their time and put the car through its paces. Check out the essentials; the engine, clutch and being fit for purpose are probably the top most vital things to consider.”

Neil concludes, “The chances are you’ll be driving your purchase for the next four years or more, so it’s important to make a well-informed decision. If you don’t feel confident about taking a test drive yourself, take someone with you who you trust to do this on your behalf. And of course make the most of the tools that are readily available to you such as investing in an independent vehicle inspection by a professional and a vehicle history check, which could uncover a hidden past that can’t be revealed by a test drive alone or by looking under the bonnet.”

The HPI Check www.hpicheck.co.uk, includes a mileage check against the National Mileage Register as standard, now with over 170 million mileage readings. HPI also confirms whether a vehicle is currently recorded as stolen with the police, has outstanding finance against it or has been written off, making it the best way for consumers to protect themselves from fraudsters looking to make a fast profit. In addition, the HPI Check offers a £30,000 *Guarantee in the event of the information it provides being inaccurate, offering added financial peace of mind to used car buyers.
