A window to the past at this amazing classic car showroom. Very welcoming and knowledgeable sevice. How could I go home without buying one of their fantastic cars.

Somerset Motorhome Centre

Thornfalcon Garage, Thornfalcon, Taunton TA3 5NN, UK – 01823 444193

Bought a lovely Adria that was 5 yrs old and in great condition. I expected pushy sales man etc and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was to deal with them. When we picked it up we stayed at a campsite near their shop and they brought it to us. They left us to swap our belongings over and then came and took the PX away. No rush, no fuss and it turned out to be a great weekend away. We had a couple of small problems with the van but nothing was to much trouble for them and everything was sorted quickly. I would without a doubt buy my next camper from them. Thanks team.

A really good place to start looking for a motorhome. Everyone is knowledgeable about the vehicles which range from the older less costly ones to the newer versions. No pressure selling but very much nicer helpful style finding out what your aims are then guiding you towards the ones which are more appropriate. A great family business.

Eden Mazda Taunton

Deanegate Avenue, Taunton TA1 2UH, UK – 01823 444410

I have recently purchased used Mazda and received great customer service from Dean. He was absolutely brilliant. Nothing was too much. He has stayed late for us as we had to travel a long way. The communication was great and he delivered everything he promised. I would certainly recommend to all my friends and family. Thank you. We are absolutely delighted with our car.

Bought my first car from Eden Mazda. From the moment I arrived the experience was top quality (far better than the other garages I visited!) The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because there was an error with the 7 day insurance which subsequently meant I could not drive away immediately. However the staff were very helpful and did their up most to get the car to me by the end of the day. Particular thanks to Hayden for making the whole buying process as stress free as possible.

What are you rights when your buy a used car?
The Citizen's Advice Bureau have an excellent and comprehensive section on their website. If you find something wrong after purchasing a used car It’s worth knowing that you’ll still have legal rights even if you don’t do the proper checks. If there’s something wrong with your used car you may have a legal right to a repair or some or all of your money back.

Make sure a trader is trustworthy
If you’re buying from a trader look for an established firm with links to trade associations like the Retail Motor Industry Federation or a sign that says they follow The Motor Ombudsman's code of practice look for a trader with cars inspected by an independent engineer or motoring organisations.

Buying from an auction
Auctions are the riskiest way of buying a used car as you probably won’t have the legal protection that you have buying through a trader. Ensure that you read the auction house’s T and Cs before buying a car.

Check a car’s history

Check the car’s details with the DVLA
  • Ask the seller for the car’s registration number
  • MOT test number
  • mileage
  • make and model
Use the DVLA’s free online vehicle information checker to make sure what the seller tells you matches the DVLA’s records.

Check the MOT and history
You should check that MOT tests have been done regularly throughout the car’s history. Check this on GOV.UK. This is a free service.

Get a private history check.
These will cost up to £20 – but they can be worth it! This will give you valuable information about serious problems the car might have including if:
the car has been stolen
the seller still owes money on the car
the car has been in a serious accident
the car is showing the correct mileage
the car has been written off

Inspect the car and take a test drive
You should arrange to view the car in daylight, preferably when it’s dry - it’s harder to spot damage to the car if it’s wet. It’s a good idea to meet at a private seller’s house so that if something goes wrong after you’ve bought the car, you’ll have a record of their address.

The AA has a useful checklist for what to look out for when inspecting a used car and its paperwork. Make sure you ask about the car’s service history.

Always take the car for a test drive.
Drive for at least 15 minutes on different types of road. The AA has a checklist for what to look out for when taking a test drive. If you’re still not sure - get an independent report
However, you can go a step further and get an independent report on the car. This will give you detailed information about the car’s condition and will cost around £100 to £200 an are available from motoring organisations like the AA
