Sorry if this has been done before but this will only be the 2nd car that I've bought in my life so I'm not very familiar with the whole process. The first one I bought was from a family friend who worked in a dealership so I had no worries about it then.
Basically I am looking to trade in my wife's very old and pretty knackered Peugeot 206 for something around 3-4 years old with 25k miles on it along the lines of a Honda Civic. It's likely to cost me around 9-10k and the one I'm thinking of is a 2 and a half hour drive away at a Honda dealership.
A few things concern me.
1. If something goes wrong with it I don't really have anyway of taking it back for them to fix if I was given any kind of warranty. Is this something I should be worried about? Do such warranties usually relate to the specific dealer or to Honda dealers in general meaning I could go to my local one?
2. It's likely that if I do go to look at it and can agree on a price then I'd like to buy it there and then. That'll mean trading in my wife's car at the same time. Can this all be done easily or am I likely to have to go back and collect it another time allowing them to check over and value the Peugeot etc.?
Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
