Do not feel ashamed, these are obvious questions and we are here to answer you. Here is your guide to buy used cars. So lets start.
Mind Your Pocket
When a person thinks of buying a used car it is generally taken to be granted that there is a budget problem. Hence, estimating a correct budget is the first point in this guide.
One should research properly for his budget and the car which he wants to buy. Poor calculations may leave you robbed.
Test Drive is Your Right
Buying a car (especially a used one) is like putting all your money in flames to burn. Do not do that, take a test drive and judge the smoothness by yourself.
Age of car
While buying a used car its age matters more than any other factor. old devices comes with a lot of maintenance cost to you. It to like marrying a old person (i mean really old person).
Have Eyes of an Auto Mechanic
When I say have eyes of an auto mechanic, I don’t recommend an eye operation. What I simply say is, to have a prospective like a mechanic. See condition of engine, look if the vehicle got rusted, conditions of different bearings etc. if you are not good at this, no problem take help of a professional mechanic.
Condition of Tyres
Buying a car with tyres in pathetic condition may cause you immediate repair money. Either get the cost in negotiation or do not buy such car. Also Look if tyres are tubeless or tubed.
A person who is pretending of being the owner may the the servant (funny joke ha ha ha). Take me seriously, may be he is not servant but he may be a thief, wishing to sell a stolen are. Beware of any fraud.
I Want History
I don’t mean history subject of high school, instead i mean maintenance history of the machine. Beware of heavy maintenance work due to an accidental case. Fixed Broken bones may look fine but they cause problem at older times.
Negotiation is must
It is your skill how to negotiate to give the least price to the owner. Do not ever hesitate to bargain.
Complete all the legal formalities like registration, taxation, invoice and PUC, before the final transaction. Any mistake at this point may leave you looted.
