The flourishing industry of pre-owned cars is a happy twist in the tales of many individuals planning to buy their dream cars. Their journey towards owning a car has become shorter and easier. However, the market of used cars comes with its own cons. One needs to be very careful when buying a pre-owned car. We are here to share a few details you should add to your checklist when choosing your car.

‘Too Old’ is Not Gold!

When you’re deciding on buying a used car, you need to ensure that the car is not more than 2-3 years old and has not run more than 20 to 30 thousand kms. In many cases, owners or the car dealers try to tamper with the odometer to make sure that the car is sold. You can ask for service records to understand the actual condition of the car. However, if you do plan to buy a car that is older than the ‘ideal’ pre-owned car, make sure that the car is functioning perfectly, and all the spares are readily available.

Expert Check Mandatory

Even if you are a car enthusiast, it is better to get your pre-owned car checked by a mechanic to understand the mechanical functions of the car and also the current conditions of all the functions in the car. A skilled mechanic can also give you an estimate of the cost of repair work, in case the pre-owned car requires some maintenance.

The ‘Suitable’ Car

Just like a new car, when you are planning to buy a pre-owned car, you need to sit back and think about the car that suits both your needs and desire. For example, people living in low-lying areas or cities with not the best roads need to think about the condition of the vehicle and choose a car with high ground clearance. The car you buy needs to fit into your budget and also, the checklist you have for the things you need in a car.

‘Con Protection’

Many dealers showcase pre-owned cars in the brightest or fancy lights to ensure that the buyer misses out on minor scratches or paint fades, that could later cost the buyer a pretty good amount to fix. Make sure you check out the car you plan to buy in day light or natural lighting conditions.
