No matter whether you have purchased a used car or are bringing home a brand new car. These tips on buying a car will safeguard you from all the fallacies and fraud. * Start with checking the exteriors of the car. It should have a constant paint finish. There should be no scratches or abrupt paint. * Check whether the gaps between the panels are of the same breadth or not. If it is not, then it indicates that the car has met with an accident lately. * Open and close all the doors of the car and press the car down from all the four corners. If the car is in sound condition, it should return to its normal height smoothly. * Dont forget to check cars VIN or Vehicle Identification Number. * Check the engine and oil used. Color of the oil should be golden and it should be free from dirt and debris. * Also check engine coolant’s fluid levels. * Cross check the mileage and car’s odometer. You can make use of the car’s document for accuracy. * Check AC, dashboard, wipers, Head lights, indicators. Electric windows, seat adjuster, gears, breaks and every other thing present inside the car must be checked properly. * Checking car’s logbook, driving history, MOT certificate, servicing stamps for assurance.
2). Replace old, worn tires. Aside from being a safety hazard, worn tires make the rest of your car look old. It’s like wearing a designer outfit with ratty old sneakers. Shiny new tires with fresh tread make for safer driving and a newer-looking car. 3). Keep an eye on the little things. It is easy for cars to fall victim to damaged or missing trim, old junky windshield wipers, or chipped mirrors as they get older. But, a few minor upgrades can make your car look years younger – without breaking your budget. 4). Make minor repairs. This is something that can really help secondhand cars – especially if you don’t know how the previous owner treated the car. Squeaky brakes, a thundering muffler, or flapping belts can make your car seem (and sound!) much older than it really is. As an added benefit, making some small repairs now can help prevent major expensive breakdowns later.
So who is the smarter consumer? Who is on their way to being able to always buy nice cars? Just from one or two times abstaining from borrowing money to buy a new car a consumer can have the money in the bank to buy all their cars new, if they so desire. Also, after a little time of driving an asset they own free and clear, consumers may find they like the way that feels, even if the car does not look showroom perfect. They say there is an air freshener you can buy for that new car smell. Also bear in mind that our calculations did not take into account the amount you can save every year on ad valorum taxes and insurance for less-than-new cars.
Buying a second hand car can be a big pain in the bum but with the right information and a little bit of guidance you can pick up a real bargain. A second hand car does not have to be a banger of a car it can be only 6 months old, so dispel any prejudices about second hand cars. Everybody likes a brand new car but if you think about it logically the people that buy brand new are losing a lot of money! When you drive a car off the forecourt of a car dealership the car will instantly depreciate in value and that is a really big problem. There is no exact figure about how much a new car will lose when it is driven off the forecourt but a reasonable guess would be 30% this is based on what I have seen in the past.
Question: How many miles is on the vehicle? Hopefully you shouldn’t have to ask this question because the mileage of the vehicle should be disclosed upfront. But, you might want to ask if it has changed. Some sellers drive their car around while trying to sell it. If someone drives 100 miles a day to and from work, that can significantly increase the mileage over one or two weeks. Price depends on a number of factors and mileage is one of those important factors. Question: Has the car recently been serviced or has it undergone any recent repairs? This answer can lead you to a great car. We tend to think of cars that get serviced as bad (they need repairs after all). With that said, it does mean that the vehicle is serviced, up-to-date, and recently repaired. This is good because it also shows signs of an owner who cared for the vehicle, which you benefit from. Also, keep in mind that the more recent the repairs are the less you will have to spend on them upfront.
5). Keep the inside as clean as the outside. For some reason, people are much more tolerant of a mess in their cars than a mess in their homes. Even the most organized people can wind up driving around in a car that’s full of dirt and junk. Things that you never think about – like dirty floor mats, stains on your upholstery, and the kids’ toys rattling around – can make your car seem like an old trash heap. You don’t need to buy a new car to feel luxurious driving around; you might just need some stain remover or some new floor mats. Either way, keeping the interior of your used car clean can make a world of difference!
Reasonable mileage ==> Listed prices for cars suggest that reasonable mileage should be around the range of 12,000 miles an year. For a car with much higher mileage or in a poorer condition, the sale price should be lower. Never sign an ’As Is’ agreement ==> Read all documentation before you sign. Agree a warranty for at least 30 days, you never know what to expect with a second hand car. By signing an ’As Is’ agreement, once you drive the vehicle off the lot, anything that goes wrong will be your problem. Do not share ==> Never share this information with dealer number with your dealer. Not recommended. Shop Around ==> Don’t settle for the first car that you see. There are a lot of second hand cars being sold, you can certainly find one that suits your budget and style. With these ideas in mind, you can certainly make an informed decision.
