What are people opinions on cars that are cat d write offs are they still worth looking at, the car im goign to look at was a cat d back in 1996 since then has been through every mot so could it have been anything serious? shall i stay clear? Are there anyways to find out why it was written off as the current owner was oblivious to it being a cat d which i actually do believe, also its not a pulsar.

cheers jamie

no problem with a lot of cat d losses as its normally only superficial damage that's why it does not nedd a full ministry test and mot will suffice

so if it looks ok then buy it and obviously youll get it cheaper than something that's not been on the hit list

my insurance broker suggested some companies are a bit funny about CAT C/D cars - but said as long as there is a DVLA certificate (cant remember the code) that helps - so as a heads up just check with current insurer before purchase !

They are fine if repaired to a good standard& there are many non declared accident repaired cars on the roads so it's all on condition.

Yeh not a big deal but be sure inspect it well to see what was damaged & repair standard.
Also be more fussy on test drive for handling & steering issues.
Check tyre wear & have an extra look at panel gaps & possible water leaks.
Cat D can have few bargains but normally best buying as damaged, don't bother buying anything well bent as never worth the hassle ...
