Choosing a Quality Used Car

Not everyone can buy the desired car. Car prices are still relatively high, making them financially unable to afford them. But for those of you who really want to have a car, you can anticipate financial problems by buying a used car.

Even if it’s a used car, if you choose it carefully and precisely, you can get a quality car. Special knowledge is needed to find a quality used car. Now for those of you who intend to buy a used car, then you must implement the following tricks:

Where to buy a car (showroom or first hand)

The first way to choose a quality used car is in the showroom. There are many showrooms that open used car sales with all the attractive offers. Buying into a showroom will get you a lot of choices, but you should know that buying through a showroom makes the purchase cost greater than buying it directly from the first person.

If you want to get a cheaper used car, then it’s better to buy it in cash from the car owner directly. Buying a car from the first hand makes you understand more about the maintenance conditions of the car, especially if the person who sells it is someone you know.

Car Exterior

The next step is checking. Part of the car that must be considered first is the exterior. Note whether there are scratches on the body of the car, how the condition of the paint, whether smooth or rough. Pay attention to the glass, if there are parts that are cracked or broken. Also pay attention to the lights, if there are broken and can not light properly. See also the state of the four tires, is it still okay or already worn out. Try also going into the pit to determine whether there is a rust and porous.

Car Engine Performance

This is an important part of the checking process which must be the most scrutinized and must not be missed. What should you do? Turn on the car engine and pay attention to the engine sound; a good engine will sound smooth and not rough. A good car also has an easy to start feature. After starting the engine try to do a drive test. Try to pass the gear, make sure that the gear shift runs smoothly. Feel the condition of the car when driving. If you feel heavy, tend to turn left or right, you should think twice about buying it. In this drive test try to pass through uneven roads to test the condition of the legs of the car. For the entire drive test process you should do this with the seller.

Accessories and Interior

Try to sit on the seat, pull back, and check the quality of the upholstery. The glass should also not escape attention by trying to turn the windshield upside down. Check the wiper button and the condition of the car door open-close. Finally, try also to check the turn signal, hazard, headlights and brake lights. Audio facilities are also important to try.

Completeness of the Letters

Vehicle certificates are crucial things that you must also pay attention to when buying a car. Make sure you get a vehicle ownership certificate. Pay attention to its authenticity, because currently there are a lot of fake securities circulating so that stolen cars sell at high prices.
