What Should You Look For In A Used Car?

Are you looking to buy a new car, but not a “brand” new one? Well, then you will find yourself in the market for a used car. But when it comes to looking for a used car, what are the key things that you should be looking for? We have the four things that will make the difference for you.

1) How many kilometres it has 

To determined how ‘used’ a car is, you have to look at two things: the wear and tear of the vehicle and how many kilometres the car has on it. So the first thing you should look at before you go checking every bit of the car is to see how many kilometres are on the dial. Obviously, the more meters it has on it, the more it has been used over the years. And that means that the vehicle has a whole lot of miles on it and it is going to be burned again when you use it again.

2) Condition of the ‘whole’ engine 

No engine is going to be perfect once it has been driven around for awhile. So you shouldn’t be looking at every part of the engine, hoping it is going to look great and work perfectly. There are going to be problems wrong with it, so the best way to judge the condition of the engine is to take a step back and look at the engine as a whole. The better the condition of the engine as a “whole” than its parts, the better for you.

3) Condition of the tires

Tyres are one of the most important and valuable parts of your vehicle. And if the condition of the tires are terrible or completely worn out, then you could be facing a high bill when it comes to replacing them. So take a step back and look at the condition of the tires and see what you can do with them, and how long they are going to last you in the future.

4) If it is roadworthy & insurable

Finally, before purchasing any used car, you have to look at if the road authorities and if the insurance company will cover your vehicle. There is no question that if the used car is in terrible condition that the local road authority might not be happy to let it on the road. At the same time, the insurance company might not insure it because it is not worth as much as the repairs themselves.
