Hi there,
My question is
What potential risks could be to buy a car which had been written-off by insurance Co. ? (if the car can pass AA Pre-purchase Inspection)
Cheers

Hi there,
A previously written-off car will always have that stigma attached, but you generally get a newer cheaper car than you normally would.
The inspections the vehicle has to go through in order to get back on the road are there to make sure the repairs are satisfactory.
Vehicle longevity will also depend on what caused t to be written-off in the first instance.
