Did you know that your used car history check or HPI check maybe not be telling you the whole truth?
When you buy a used car in the UK, is it too much to ask for your used car history check to actually mean something? When AutoTrader tells you that a car has not been recorded as a write-off that actually mean something? Or do you think it’s fine if you’re one of the unlucky ones who realise they’ve bout a Cat S write-off with a hidden past despite the history check giving you no idea about it? to be clear this can affect you anywhere, there are main dealers selling these cars as well as independents and private sellers - if you're buying a cat s car or a cat n car (regardless of if they were added to the register by the insurer) you should know about it when buying a used car - especially if you've already done an Experian check or an HPI check.

I am very angry about this as literally hundreds of thousands of cars are not showing in that register that should be and it seems that the DVLA, HPI, Dept for Transport are not taking any action to rectify this despite knowing the situation. How can these organizations fail to act when they know there are hundreds of thousands of salvaged repaired cars on the market in the uk knowing that they show as clear on an HPI check??
The AutoExpress article I mentioned in the video is here: bit.ly/writeoffs
Huge thanks for a check for helping me make this video. Please spread the word as this situation needs to be known by anyone buying a used car in the UK today. And understood by many more people than are currently aware and it needs to be fixed by the powers that be.
The good news is that this video will show you how to buy a used car with peace of mind, you basically just need a quality used car check that looks at more sources than just the official databases. HPI checks and the like should give you confidence about your cars past when you buy a second-hand car so make sure you choose a service that genuinely does and let's hope that this ridiculous situation soon gets fixed and that yoiu can buy a used car from the main points of sale with confidence.
My check of choice is with VCheck, I do get paid a small amount if you buy from vcheck using my link but my recommendation is a genuine one as I hope this video shows - www.vcheck.uk/?aid=31442

That's absolutely shocking, they should not be able to get away with it, all dealers should be reported to the relevant authority, well done for highlighting this.

HPI Clear is obviously a declaration which is meaningless. Yet another way to be ripped off by the car dealers. Well done for exposing. How about sending this to BBC's Watch Dog? It may get you some good coverage? Thanks👏

Thanks Jim for this very informative video, I don't think most people would have known anything like this existed. It just seems another dodgy dealer trick. We all know which company to use infuture to check out our used car purchases. Thanks again for bringing this to light.

That really is a complete scandal. I had previously heard about unrecorded write-offs but had assumed these were rare instances of vehicles slipping through the net. What is clear from your video is that it's happening on a grand scale and, by the sounds of it, the insurance industry, the motor trade and the DVLA are all routinely complicit in this appalling scam.

Having bought a car recently via a main dealer and paying thousands it’s crazy how we can still be caught out! I always expected a hpi provided by a dealer or autotrader to give you reassurance and peace of mind. Now that I have watched this video it gave me cause for concern and I was a tad bit scared to do a vcar check. Thank god it come back as a pass and I must say it’s very detailed, comprehensive and value for money! I did a full check for £10 along with a 10% promo code I found online. Big thumbs up for this video pal 👍🏽

Amazing insight into how exposed we "could" be in purchasing the second most expensive asset, next to a house. Staggering that this is allowed to go on. Have just checked mine, and thankfully all good.

Thanks for this Jim - like others have commented, I thought that apart from a very low number of cars that slipped through the net a clear HPI check was all that I needed. It's all I've ever done in the past!. Thanks for the heads up. Very worrying indeed.

Did a check on my C class that I purchased last year (using your link). Pleased to say that it was all clear and I was really impressed with the level of detail provided about every aspect of the vehicle (I opted for the £4.99 check).

A great video and thanks for highlighting this, having just recently bought a vehicle and completed an HPI check i was not aware of how meaningless they can be. Glad to say just ran it through Vcheck and its clear. You live and learn

Jesus ! I’m too scared to check out my £40,000 pound Rover. I will spread the word. Thanks for putting this out there 👏🙏

Its about 10 years since I bought a used vehicle. My Vectra C Design 150 has been brilliant over that time but even it is starting to show the signs of wear and tear which are starting to make it uneconomical to maintain. I decided to do a bit of research and look at the pitfalls when buying a used vehicle in todays market. Your video is excellent and im really glad I came across it. I will use your link to be sure when I have found a suitable vehicle to do a history check.

Thank you for your great hard work. This is helping me enormously as I am in the process of buying a second hand car. Just come across a dealer in Cardiff that has not even mentioned that their car was a Cat S. Really eye opener .

Thanks for highlighting this. HPI is clearly a waste of money. 🙁 Also worth connecting a good OBD analyser to see if there are fault codes too.

Thank you so much for making this video. I conducted a check on a car being marketed for sale as HPI clear, it turned out that it was sold at a salvage auction as stolen/recovered just 14 days before it being marketed by the dealer who I was going to buy the car through. They made no mention of the vehicles past on their advert. I was going to pay full retail value for this car of £31,000 and it’s true retail value is probably thousands of pounds less than this because of its past.

Great vid thanks, I'm shocked but not really surprised, I have done HPI checks before with the AA but makes you question everything. I wonder what comeback there is as a dealer can legitimately claim a car was unrecorded?

Thanks Jim. Very informative. Are Vcheck aggressively trying to get dealers to use their product? If not they should! Will definitely use vcheck when I buy a used car!
