Mercy Maïlys. Used Car. April 16th , 2020.
The days of spending hour after hour for days walking through car lots are all but gone. The modern car purchaser has many tools at his disposal. The chief tool is the internet. People can now watch videos to see reviews of cars from real owners and in some cases, they can see videos of the cars they are considering purchasing. The most popular use of the internet, however, is looking for cars for sale online. There are millions of searches monthly for cars for sale and specifically for no reserve cars. A no reserve auction means that the lowest current bid for the item wins. There is no reserve price that a bidder must bid above. People are looking for car auctions with no reserve pricing for two reasons. First, they are trying to get the best deal possible. If nobody else enters a bid, and the auction was listed for a very low initial bid, they can get great deals for potentially thousands below the value of a car. The other reason people look at no reserve car auctions is to establish a comparison price with other cars. They know that they shouldn’t just assume that a car has a great price because it is in a no reserve auction, but they can compare it to other cars for the best deal possible. It would be easy to assume that only private sellers are selling their cars online, but dealers are selling new and used cars online. Some of these dealers go the extra mile for the internet sale. For the modern car buyer, looking for best pricing on autos or looking for antique, classic, or exotic cars that are difficult to find locally, online auctions are a powerful tool.
Fluid leaks – Many people might overlook a small drop of oil or some other fluid here and there, but these are sure signs of potential future problems that will need to be addressed. A car that is running like it was designed to should not be leaking anything.
So when you see someone driving a new car just look at them to say silly!! Now when looking for a used car you need to decide what you are after, this sounds obvious but for many people this is not. Do you want a 4×4 or a people carrier maybe you fancy a sporty two seaters but maybe you just want a normal family car. Once you have decided on the car you are after you need to consider the budget you have, whether you take out a car loan or whether you pay cash you need to have a budget. If you are taking out a car loan then you need to consider how much you can afford to re pay on the loan and the best advice is you need to think if you can afford the repayments if you do not work. If you can’t then maybe you should re think your budget.
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.
4. Test drive. Never buy a car without trying it out first. Even though you may think that the car is right for you, if you test drive it and find out that it just doesn’t fit you right or that you don’t fit it, then you should start looking all over again. Also, be sure to listen to the car while you are on the test drive for any squeaks or rattles or problems. If you hear or feel anything, be sure to get the car checked out. 5. Inspect the car. It may help to bring along a mechanic (if you are not dealing with a dealership) or to bring the car to a mechanic you trust on the test drive. This way, you will really find out if there is anything wrong with the car and if not, then you are probably in the free and clear. 6. Get a car with a background. If the owner is worth anything, they will have a full catalog of paperwork detailing all of the problems and all of the fixes that have been made to the vehicle. If you go for a car from a private party, make sure it has its paperwork. The final bit of advice is to get a car you trust. If you are purchasing a car, you will want to get a car that you don’t always wonder about when you get in to drive it. Having a car that you feel great about is one of the joys of ownership. Just make sure that you find out all you can about the vehicle before you commit to it because you don’t want to make a huge mistake.
Depending on how long you have been driving, you will probably have had at least one car you have wanted to sell, and if you have ever tried to sell a car, you will certainly understand the minefield that is the used car market. There are many reasons why you may think to yourself ’I want to sell my car’; perhaps you want to buy a newer, or better, car; perhaps you have developed an environmental conscience and wish to ride a bike, or take public transport; or perhaps you simply need to raise a little capital in a short space of time, and think that selling your car would be the perfect way to do so. Selling a used car can take time and money. If selling privately, there are the associated costs of advertising, which can reach in excess of £150 if the car is advertised with a coloured photo. There is also the time involved, it is unlikely that the first person who views the car will take it, and so, more often than not, multiple viewings are necessary, these take up valuable free time and can be a great inconvenience. Alternatively, if selling with a dealership, it is unlikely that you will receive a good price for your car.
