What to remember when buying a used car?

Cars, cars, cars.

Can’t live with them. Can’t live without them.

As much of an excellent experience owning a car can be, the purchasing aspect can be a bit of a pain especially if you’re in the market for buying a used car.

Now we know what you’re thinking. Why would someone like us be talking about buying used cars of all things?

However, it is what it is. Don’t get us wrong. We take immense pride in the part we play in the automotive industry, and used cars just so happen to be a vital component of the said industry.

A car is a car, and if your interests lie in purchasing one that happens to be not-so-brand-new then, by all means, go for it! However, as a business that’s been operating several different Maruti Suzuki showrooms in Hyderabad, we believe in being vigilant when moving in for the kill. New or used, nothing changes the rules.

Which is why we’ve chosen to create a post highlighting a few points you need to remember when buying a used car. You see, most people tend to make the mistake of underestimating the buying process of a used car. Bluntly put, it kicks ass just as much as a new car would.

It’s considered to be somewhat more complicated than buying a new one. There’s all the hoopla about being old or damaged or broken or being repaired improperly and so on. Another concern is the warranty. With used cars, once you’ve turned in the moolah, and signed your name on the dotted line, it’s officially your responsibility or problem, whichever way you choose to look at it.

However, as we’ve mentioned earlier, it’s not as bad as it seems.

Why?

Well for starters:

  • Used cars are great for people with limited means and even more limited choices.
  • Are you not going to be financing the car? Perfect. You’ll need liability insurance instead of the usual full coverage option.
  • A used car doesn’t come with a price tag as heavy as its newer counterparts. There are no fees like cleaning and shipping affixed to the price.

It’s not the ‘perfect’ option. There’s always a degree of risk attached to any investment, particularly ones that involve vehicles. However, this is where we come in. Just pay attention to whatever we’ve got to say on the subject, and you’ll no longer have to suffer sleepless nights wondering how much of a terror trip this is going to be.

Here are a few things you must remember when buying a used car.

  1. Before starting on the process, devote some time to consider factors that include how the car will be in use, how long do you plan to hold it for, the budgetary considerations including insurance, operation, maintenance, and repair costs, and so on.
  2. Opt for a car that matches the ideal you have in your mind based off of your lifestyle and your immediate needs.
  3. Keeping your budget in mind, always go in for a smaller car rather than a larger one. The latter will add to your costs. Your best bet? Look for something that’s two years old or younger.
  4. Do your homework. Find out as much as you can about the dealer as well.
  5. Get the car of your choice valued by your bank’s evaluator.
  6. Make sure all promises get recorded verbatim.
  7. Examine the car thoroughly, from the car’s repair record, maintenance costs, to its safety and mileage ratings.
  8. Go through a copy of the dealer’s warranty before you decide to go ahead with the purchase.
  9. Always go for a test drive whether it’s hilly terrains, highways, or in stop-and-go traffic.
  10. Stay on the look-out for any signs of an accident, such as dents, scratches, and so forth.
  11. Thoroughly examine both interiors and exteriors such as rusting, cracks in the frame, worn out tires, cracked battery, fluid leaks, etc.
  12. Don’t forget to ask your seller for the registration papers. These documents are crucial to the transfer and confirmation of ownership.
  13. Also, have your mechanic give the car a once-over before sealing the deal.
  14. So there you have it — a few tips to help you select the best car for your needs.
