Buying used cars

Unfortunately due to an incident, my otherwise immaculate but old VW Golf was written off by a person who was, in my opinion far too old to be driving.  As much as I wanted to say that she should not be driving at all, she was sweet and very apologetic.  However I have now started looking for a new mode of transport.  How dificult is this!!  Every car I enquired was sold or being sold when i turned up to look at it.  At this rate I may resort to buying a bike to get to work….

Well I will endevour to carry on looking.
