Re: Dirt Cheap Abarth Grande Punto!

If you read the bottom part before bidding it says its a unrecorded cat d or c. I would never buy a car with previous accident damage, i.e cat d onwards. Something to risky in buying that car. Previous write off maybe?

Re: Dirt Cheap Abarth Grande Punto!

Cat D could be just panel damage. Even getting key'd on mulitple panels can cause a Cat D.

Normally what happens with repossessed cars is the fianace company puts them through the auction, much quicker for them to get their money. And trying to sell a cat d/c is hard, i know alot of people who wont buy one.

It actually says "unless stated unrecorded" which it does.

Re: Dirt Cheap Abarth Grande Punto!

I dont think its a write off - just a car that has been Reposed because the owner has not been paying for the car or other reasons.

The statement below would suggest that they might also sell cars that have been written off.

"ALL OUR VEHICLE ARE CAT D OR CAT C UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED UNRECORDED, HPI CLEAR FINANCE CLEAR"
