It doesn’t come as a surprise, that buying a pre owned or second-hand car is a more daunting and complicated process than simply purchasing a brand new car. There has been a considerable rise in the number of people who want to buy used car in Bangalore. Following are some tips one can keep in mind when purchasing a second hand car.
How ‘old’ is the car exactly?
Many times, sellers tend to sell off a really old car by showcasing it as a relatively new car which hasn’t travelled much distance. A really old car brings with it additional expenses of maintenance, fuel, etc. One should check the year of manufacture on the engine before finalizing the sale.
How much should the car actually cost you?
Agreed, that buying a used car bring with it additional costs but the cost of a pre owned car should always be considerably less than that of the new car. This is why one should be very sure of their budget. There is also an option of taking car loans from banks. Most banks offer flexible EMI options and low rates of interests which make purchasing a car an attainable dream for many.
Avoid frauds and scams
It has been found in the second-hand car market, that a lot of these second-hand cars are actually stolen cars. A buyer must always be careful of such frauds. The sellers of such cars are unable to provide the original documents and other important information about the cars. Buying such cars can lead to a lot of legal trouble for the buyer.
The best way to dodge such a situation is to purchase second-hand cars from registered dealerships or online portals. These make sure all the paperwork and information is in place and that buying the car does not prove to be a hassle for buyers.
