How many of you have bought a car whether brand new or pre-owned only to find it doesn’t do what you thought it did? For those who especially buy pre-owned there are a whole load of things that you need to know before buying and it’s easy to get lost in the excitement of a new car!
Our blog post today tells the top 10 car buying questions everyone should ask.
Not easy to spot by just asking – you’re relying on them telling the truth but ask nonetheless and then get it checked. (See question 10)
This gives the seller a chance to tell you of any faults that they’ve had (which should reflect in the price)
Avoid scams and getting into trouble with DMV!
Knowing this could be just as valuable as knowing the car’s history.
Not only do you get a feel for how easy or challenging it is to drive but you can check how the engine sounds, if the gear box and breaks etc work OK.
If the seller won’t allow you to take it to your mechanic and insists that their mechanic has checked it over – walk away. Get impartial advice.
Some dealers will throw in a set of tyres (get as much as you can for your money).
A CarFax report will tell you if there’s anything wrong with the car. It’s not fool proof but it will give good indications as to whether it’s been involved in a collision.
