    no test drive??

    simple question if you were going to buy a car, and you wasn't allowed a test drive would you still buy it?? or is it an automatic no??
    i ask cuz i seen a lot of cars on ebay from private and traders sales, that say no test drives no matter what sort of thing!!
    even on brand new cars is this normal??

    I bought my MK5 with no test drive - all I had done was sit in the drivers seat.

    Only way I'd buy a car I haven't driven is because it was new and I'd driven the demo etc

    I bought my MK 5 without a test drive, but then it was brand new

    I did however test the same spec car before buying.

    I wouldnt personally buy a car without driving it, you have no way of telling if you like it otherwise or if it is fully functioning.

    guess the cars worth a bit less when its been pulled out of the ditch and turned the right way up after the "test drive"
