Some repairs are worthwhile, but don't feel you have to fix every little thing.
It’s never easy to decide whether or not to carry out repairs on your car when you’re trying to sell it
. On the one hand, repairs will make your car more valuable and easier to sell, but on the other there’s no guarantee you’ll recover the amount the repair, or repairs, cost.
When you’re dealing with a minor problem – a blown bulb, for instance – it’s certainly worth getting that sorted out. After all, think about the impression it leaves: if someone sees you don’t even care enough about a car to spend a few quid on a bulb, what will they think about your attitude to more major repairs?
