    Default Service History chase up help!

    Hello again,

    I am looking at buying a small car for the misses and have come across a few options.

    One of them doesnt come with any service history, no service book.

    I have checked the previous MOT's online and they are OK with the miles, but im more interested in the SH to the car.

    I have rang Vx Customer Care and they have told me that they have ZERO info on it.

    I have rang around the local dealers in Brum as the car is reg'd in Brum, but no-one has any recolection of it!

    ANY IDEAS WHERE I CAN GET THIS INFO FROM?

    Thanks, G.

    How many MoT has it, so it's at least three years old?

    With no records on the VX system then effectively its warranty was void after one year
    How about contacting Sureguard and seeing if there were any warranty claims

    Personally, I would now assume it has NEVER been serviced, so would avoid
    Servicing in small engine cars is ESSENTIAL, failure to service cuts the life by at least half (engine life to about 60K miles)

    Its a 2003. Its had 2 previous owners, 1 between 2003 to 2007, and then it 2007 the current ownver bought it in his wife's name then transferred it to his own name immediately. Allegedly insurance purposes......but this is what concerns me!!!!!

    I will have a ring aroung the MOT station's later today to see what I get back from them!

    I have found out one piece of info from vx Cust Car that in 2004 it had some warranty work, but I called the garage and they dont have any of this info and that they probably done keep data going back 5 years!!

    DILEMA!

    6 years old, so between 3 and 5 MoT
    I would still assume it has never been serviced from 2006 onwards, unless the previous owners can provide receipts or the current owner can find the service book

    I have looked at many cars in the past, and if they are this old; no service book = walk away
    It's just not worth the hassle

    The current owner reckons its been serviced by himself and a private garage since 2007, when they bought it. before that remains a mystery! ! !

    If its been serviced by himself ask for receipts, its a must. I've been servicing mine since the warranty ran out and have a big stack of receipts to back it up.

    OK, I have just spoken to Black Horse Car Sales (the owner say he bought it from here), and they indeed say they sold the car in 2005, so some of the story fits together! Would BHCS be able to shed some more light on the previous ownership details so I can trace the SH?

    To drive a car third party (i.e when you have first bought it and want to take it home) you cannot be the owner of the vehicle so his wife will have "bought it"for him to drive it third party on his insurance. Just a possibility
