Used car expectations

Prevalent Car Dealer Forum user Umesh Samani posted the question: ‘I saw a “review” on a website a few weeks ago about a customer complaining about what was wrong with a car he’d bought for £895. Yes, the car has to be road worthy and a heap of junk, but what can you really expect for that price? So is it down to customer expectations?’
