If you have informed and been informed and can provide evidence as such then that is reasonable in the eyes of the law. As long as the seller can provide evidence then that's fine.
AND MY STANCE IS THAT THE SELLER SHOULD ALWAYS INFORM THE BUYER OF DEFFICIENCIES.
Otherwise how are "barn finds" sold, MOT failures, projects, 50 trailers in need of repair?
Nobody expects the buyer to actually run them home simply because it's a vehicle.
But some idiots do. Then they try and apportion the blame for their dodginess onto righteous and just citizens.

absolutely

I believe it used to be wavelength's job to prosecute people for this sort of stuff. However I don't know if he knows of any case where a private seller actually got prosecuted having clearly stated in an ad that it was not roadworthy?

I am sure this is not the major factor in this, but are you sure your system is better?

Road fatalities
/100k inhabs pa / 100k vehicles / 1Bn vehicle km

UK 3.59 7 5.7
USA 12.3 15 8.5
Poly, where did you get the fatality data? I would like to compare Australia.

List of countries by traffic-related death rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Code:
Australia: 5.71	     8	       5.8
the data on Wikipedia seems to come from the WHO.

its fine. ive towed a 3000 kg 35 ft RV, 4 tires and no brakes with a chevy v8 long bed pickup 4000 miles without any problems. just keep a huge following distance and brake gently. you will feel the trailer push the vehicle and use up your distance. as long as you think of your vehicle as a large train rather than a car it will be ok. drive carefully.
