Cars Checklist for buying a used car
Things to work on BEFORE VISITING THE DEALER
Now, this is something where you have to stay quiet vigilant, to make sure you get your hands on a decent and affordable car, gathering as much information as you possibly can BEFORE VISITING THE DEALER is the best thing you can do. Next is the list of things that you must get done with before proceeding towards the purchase of a car. Most IMPORTANTLY, ‘RESEARCH’ - this is the key!
The research includes: browsing through reviews put on by people, discovering price ranges for similar cars, as well as having know-how about the major components of the vehicle i.e engine, trim, plus other extra, optional choices available for the equipment of the car.
Moreover, keeping your needs in mind, decide the fuel type that most suits the car, calculate the approximate measurements (if you plan to keep the car in your garage).
Another tip- carrying out a ‘history research’ on any of the cars you plan to buy is always a good idea. (every vehicle on AA Cars comes along with a complimentary 26-point car history check)
Furthermore, the cost of running the car must be found out, inclusive of :
- Yearly road tax
- Insurance cost
- Fuel consumption by the car
‘Funds’, too play an important role, because you have to make sure if you can afford the vehicle.
Carrying out the following things will probably prevent you from having in-affordability or low budget problems :
1)Keep in mind your affordability.
2)Do research on the trade-in value of the car.
3)If you’re short of funds and plan to borrow money, arrange a ‘personal/bank loan’ instead.
Keep your mind clear and mentally prepared at the time of the trade. You should have no unsatisfaction or doubts in mind.
Visiting to thoroughly view the car through an appointment, before you buy it, will make you have a better idea about it.
