(dpa) - A VW beatle stands in an oversized shopping trolley as an eye-catcher towering above the sales car-park at 'Der Autokaufhof', a second-hand car dealer in Plauen, Germany, 2 July 2003. The car and automobile service provider 'Dekra' wants to increase the transparency in the sale of second-hand cars to private customers. According to Dekra private customers are now able to have their second-hand cars service checked and valued. The service includes a check on the tyres, breaks, engine, car body, electronics, gear unit and the car's interior. So far the Dekra seal of approval was awarded by the individual car dealers. Around every second second-hand car in Germany was past between private customers in the last year.
