We bought a second-hand car in 2020. It’s been 2 years and it’s working fine like day-1.

We researched a lot about it and ensured that the second-hand car we bought would be worth our money. 

I thought there are many people like us who want to buy a second hand car too. It can be tough to decide but with the right help you can do it. 

Here are Top 5 things to look when buying a used car:

1. Check the Condition 

: This is a common thing to look at when buying a used car. Check the body, underbody, and wheel wells of the car.

Because if you buy a defective car you need to repair it and it will cost you a lot of money.

Check the overall condition of the car. You can see Lighting, Steering, Brake system, and Engine cooling.

Make sure these tools are in a very good condition because these are the main parts of the car.

2. See the interior and Exterior

: Have a look at the interior and exterior of the car. Make sure seats have no stains or tears.

Check whether the car has a music system, Air conditioner, monitor, or any other tool already in.

Take a look at the car’s paint. Is there any dusty thing? See it with all the Angles. Also, check the color difference between all the outer parts, you will easily see if those are repainted because there will be color difference in the other parts or some may be shining due to repainting.

3. Paperwork

: This is the main part to look at when buying a used car. Check if all the papers are complete and transparent?

Ask the owner for the original Physical papers of the car. Don’t Just See the virtual copies of it. Also, check if there’s any loan on that car. This needs to be clear first.

Also, check the Registration certificate clearly. Also, make sure that there is no accident history associated with the vehicle.

4. Engine

The engine is the real key to any car. Try to check it early in the morning. See how much time it takes to start the engine. Do this process at least 5-6 times. Also, check if there’s any noise in the engine. You can take help from a mechanic for this.

5. Test drive

: Test drive may show you the real experience of that used car. Don’t just drive for 2 mins, drive it until you have checked everything you want to. Speed it up to check if there’s an issue with the car when we speed up.

I hope you got some value from this post. If yes, then please share it with your friends and family who are planning to buy a second-hand car.

This list of Top 5 things to look at when buying a used car will surely help them.
