Default Missed running in service, a problem?

One of the cars Iím going to view next week appears to have it running in service missed, the service appears to have been done at its 1st service which was at 6000miles! How much of a problem do you guys think this is, and should this be reflected in the price?

I always thought it was viewed as critical.
If you can find out the dealer maybe they would have a record of it.

Tbh if the car has done enough miles though, Iím not sure if itís still a deal breaker and the treatment over the last 20 years is probably more important. Iím just speculating mind, someone more knowledgeable will be along shortly Iím sure..

I wouldnít worry to much, the car is around 20 years old, if there was going to be a problem it would have shown up long ago.

My car was a registered to a dealership as the first owner, no running in service shown on the service book and no way of checking if it had it. Iím not concerned in the slightest.

Also I know this car, itís Alís old car.

This car was wanted for nothing, Al is very particular with his cars and owns some spectacular metal.

Whilst I'm sure the latest owner was fastidious, you need to think about how others would view the car.

The fact that you're worried about it means that many others would be too. If you plan to keep the car forever then no issue, otherwise use it as a bargaining chip. Others would do the same to you :)
