I am purchasing a used automobile imported from the UK by a dealer in Dublin who appears to specialise in this type of automobile sales. I have paid a small deposit to the dealer but have discovered via a Automobiletell.ie check that the vehicle has outstanding finance of a type called 'Unit Stocking' from a UK finance company. Interestingly the start date is shown as 01/02/2018 with a term of six months. I was told there was no finance outstanding on the automobile and the vendors appear to be respectable and trustworthy.
What steps should I take to protect my interests prior to completing the purchase?

I was told that if I buy a fully electric automobile for my business that I can write off the cost of it in the first year. Is this correct?

I notice in the detailed UK specs for the Kia Stinger (which otherwise appears like a wonderful automobile), it says, both for the 2.0-litre and 3.0-litre petrol engines, that the service interval is a mere six months. This seems weird when many new automobiles with powerful engines have a two-year service interval, at least for the first service. What do you think?

Why would a 2009 diesel Peugeot with 66,000km on the clock lose power and stop on the motorway at 100km/h? I turned it off and restarted it and it was perfect for about 40km then it happened again.

I bought a Ford Kuga in Jan 2015 and have done 127,000km. I was asked to change the timing belt today at a Ford service. I Googled and found out that I can do up to 200,000km or 10 years between timing belt replacements. If that is so I could save money now and do it later. Can you advise? Mine is three years old and I service it regularly, at least every three months, as I am always driving long distances alone.

Just found out my 2012 Volvo S60 needs a new gearbox. Will I be at a loss if I use an independent garage rather than a main dealer when I come to sell it?
