Also, carcheck is just a retail outlet that sells for the underwriter, nothing is paid by them at time of repair.

I just could not see spending 50% of what blue book is on these cars at the time of purchase. I have had to shell out money on repairs on my car but everything I have replaced would have not been covered anyway.

My 2 cents
Ask what they value your car before you buy. They will give you the exact $$ amount. Mine was valued at 17,000 on a 02 745 Li. So in my case it is a great buy.
