i did try another car. i tried another car from autotrader. it was an imported tubby as well....

dealer says to me he has all the documents INCLUDING JAP HISTORY v5 + import documents etc.

just thought it was wierd that this check thing didnt show the car.

(on a related note it showed my old 306petrol as a 106xrd!!)

I wouldn't trust any of the Free Online Services (if it were free or even the cheep ones) - where are they getting the information from? How can they give it away free (or charge not much) when they need to pay for it themselves?

When Nicola bought her Scooby we obviously got a full AA inspection with report and an HPI - paid a lot of money for it all to be done. Even then it showed up outstanding finance secured on the car! We queried this with the owner who swore blindly that the loan had been paid off early. We contacted the AA again and asked them to double check and it came up clean.

Use the The AA or HPi :thumbsup:
