The sad thing is this is how many people think the world works , its always somebody else's fault 

Also they are on benefits and had to save money for ages to buy it and they really need the car to get to their depressed partners auntie's funeral "it will help him grieve*. They had a mechanic friend check the car out before they bought it and he said it seemed OK, now they're wondering if he is liable as well. 

Just a professional victim.

I'd be suing the Emperor of Japan, me. The bastard.

by the sounds of it, they don't even expect to have to sue anyone - they're just quite sure that because "they didn't buy a cheap banger" (it was £700) that someone else is on the hook and happy to cough up to refund them or repair the car.

 

EDIT: Now they are suggesting the garage that MOTd it in September could have missed something or done a dodgy test.

Surely Mark Zuckerberg  bears ultimate responsibility for this mess and should be getting his hand in his pocket?

I wouldn't be letting that Naruhito off the hook, mind.

In similar vein to the above Yaris..

This individual has bought a VW Polo, with accident damage for £420. Apparently its got "hidden faults" in the way of multiple warning lights (probably typical VAG low voltage) so they feel like they've been scammed!

And it gets better.... The next video they have taken a picture of the N/S/F suspension with surface corrosion, and because of this they seem to thinking its shocking and a death trap!

And the best bit? It ("shouldn't have") passed its MOT....

Must be worth £15 a ticket to help the poor feckers out. Can you still nominate people for a Readers Digest subscription?

Is it this one?

In all fairness, they just sound clueless with cars if I've got the right thread. They're  thinking isn't wrong, if I break my camera or fridge I can claim on the house insurance. Why not a car? Fair point really. 

They seem quite accepting of the situation TBH, life experience etc but when £1,700 is a lot of money you are always on a knife edge especially if you don't understand the risks. 

Obviously they could be full of bollocks but I think they're genuinely not up to speed with the outside world.

Given Medicare is free stuff for oldsters isn't this just a means of separating the gullible from their money?

£1700 , doesn't make it any less likely to be a shitbox

Typically, line most government issue things, it only covers a certain percentage. That's a bit like Saga over there.
