Hi,

my friend bought a car last night...turns out he got a red V5C doc with it, instead of the usual blue/green. whats more, across the front it said "this is NOT a registration certificate, only proof to show who is responsible for tax and mot of the vehicle"

also, he did a my text check, which came back clear, it said the vehicle had two previous owners, however, this V5C only says its had 1 previous owner.

the car came from trade, is this the reason? the second owner was techincally the garage?

thanks for your help

I got one of the new ones when I bought my Subaru.

Scared the crap out of me at first because of the warning on the front. I had to look it up aswell.

thank you for that...why could i not find that?! [:$]

doesnt explain the discrepancy between the my text check and the V5 though...is the second owner potentially the garage!

By the way, DO NOT use Royle Ascot motors....treated us like total c**p. went to look at a golf there, i noticed a few things wrong with it, including the under tray dropping off...we asked for a test drive, he went inside to "ask his boss" came back out and said "we have just sold it over the phone"

its still on autotrader. Douche bag
