    So you are saying it is a one owner car and then you are talking about contacting the owner before the first one. Either that makes it a two owner car with you being the third, or you are high on some substance.

    Looking at the first MOT in April 2015, the car failed on worn tyre and worn brakes, suggesting it has not been regularly serviced up to that point - or these things would have been picked up.

    As a previous poster commented - have you got a copy of the electronic service record, think these came in in 2008 so yours as a 2012 is well in.

    Contact a dealer who serviced the car for the original owner and ask them if they would be prepared to forward a note to the original owner on your behalf. Simply forwarding a note would put the dealer on the right side of any data protection issues they have (everybody is terrified about that one these days) as they would not be passing any info to you. There are no data issues about the car itself as the act only applies tom information about living individuals.

    That's odd. Unless the car has done very few miles, I would have thought it would have been serviced within the dealer network at least until the warranty had expired.
