What To Look For When Buying A Used Car


When buying a used car, it is essential to have a look at the vehicle’s tyres condition. Often, they are old and uneven, which will cause you problems on the road in the near future. It is beneficial to check the air pressure, how old they are, and their sturdiness.

Most of the time, you are encouraged to just replace the tyres in a used car, as this can save you from problems in the future.


Wear And Tear

Before you go ahead and negotiate on a price, and then hand over the payments for a used car, take a good look at the physical condition of the car. Is there many dents, scratches, or overall wear and tear? Small scratches can be easily repaired and usually won’t cost much, but you should always try to negotiate these minor issues when agreeing on a price.


To get to the nitty gritty, be sure to open the bonnet and take a good look. This is where most problems arise and try to be covered up. Check the oil and brake fluid to make sure they are not low as this could be a sign of poor maintenance. Look for any oil leaks under the bonnet and usually if there is a patch on the ground where the car has been parked, this is a clear indicator.



Try everything inside the car to make sure it works as it should. Again, some electrical faults can be easy to repair, but they should be negotiated. Try the windows, air conditioning, radio, USB ports, Bluetooth etc.
