Brits 'would not buy a second hand car off David Cameron'

David Cameron is among the world leaders people would be least willing to buy a second-hand car from, a new survey has found.

Lothario and out-going Italian prime minister Silvio Belusconi was the least likely to be able to sell on his vehicles to a Brit, the Craigslist figures reveal.

US president Barack Obama remains the political figure people would be most willing to buy a second hand vehicle from, followed up by Germany's Angela Merkel.

Jim Buckmaster, chief executive of Craigslist, said that this sort of test of public trust is an important indicator about politics.

"If Obama fails to win re-election next year, he could always launch a used car business in the UK. But he should clearly avoid partnering with Silvio Berlusconi or even David Cameron," he claimed.

Trust is important for those looking to buy or sell cars second hand, with recent figures from the Office for Fair Trading finding that 13 per cent of all complaints it received were about sellers making misleading claims or omissions.ADNFCR-2576-ID-801221150-ADNFCR
