    Default Purchasing of Cat D cars

    Does the Garage have to tell me if the car is a Cat D? Bought one and didn't know, what can I do about it?

    Yes they do! Cars sold at a garage should have a HPI check done which will show if the vehicle has any markers against it. They are obliged by law to declare this when selling to the public

    They should,,, but they don't have to... as CAT D class as legally repair and put it back on Road and we know cars get repairs on the regular bases and every repair does not documented Also if car number plate was visible on the time of advertising or sale then it's normally buyer's responsibility to check before buy. CAT D are legal to buy and Sell there is no need for panic If you bought one and it's run perfect don't worry

    I think that the point is that the value is reduced by being cat 'D'. If the buyer didn't know, he may have paid too much. Of course he may well have bought it thinking it was a great bargain, and now finds that it is not so much.

    A car dealer or trader is legally obliged to inform a customer if a car is recorded A, B, C, or D. If you don't believe me then visit Autotrader's site where it is explained.
    Try putting an ad in there for a Cat D without mentioning it and see what happens.

    Why do you need a new V5?
