Britons are found to be more dishonest than ten years agoBack

A recent study has revealed that Britons are more dishonest than they were ten years ago.

New research by academics at the University of Essex suggests that out of more than 2,000 adults surveyed, more people had become tolerant of lying and extramarital affairs than in the year 2000.

The online study of ‘integrity’, which focused on repeating questions asked to people in 2000, suggested that young people were more likely to be dishonest than older people, with those tested in 2011 under the age of 25 scoring an average of 47 points on an integrity scale whilst those over 65 scored a higher average of 54 points.

If we relate these findings to the motoring industry, it is more important than ever that buyers feel they are receiving an honest and reliable service from dealers when it comes to purchasing a new or used car.

In fact, at Trusted Dealers, we go the extra mile to make sure our customers feel completely at ease by offering prospective buyers free HPI and Experian checks on all of our used cars. The HPI check will confirm that the car has not been lost or stolen, written off or is on outstanding finance. We want our customers to ‘trust’ us completely, so by offering this free service, we can ensure customers drive away safe in the knowledge that their new car is a reputable one.

But we don’t just stop there. Trusted Dealers also offer all prospective buyers our unique 10-Points of Difference service, specifically designed to make a difference to the way that our customers feel about their buying experience with us. The 10 Points of Difference is a thorough service which includes theft and write off checks, finance settlement checks, mechanical checks and mileage checks, providing our buyers with added peace of mind they are getting a good deal on a quality used car.

And if you don’t believe us, there’s a new emotion detector test created by a team at the universities of Bradford which can visibly see when we’re lying! The sophisticated new camera system is capable of detecting lies just by watching people’s faces as they talk using a simple video camera, a high-resolution thermal imaging sensor and a suite of algorithms.

Watch the 10-Points of Difference video located on the home page of the Trusted Dealers website to gain further information about how you can benefit from buying a used car through our team of dedicated sales professionals.
