Guidelines to buying a used vehicle

 We provide a list of what you can do in an orderly manner to avoid any hassle that may arise from buying a useless second hand car a.k.a "lemon"
1. Do your own research
Before jumping onto the billing bandwagon, make a list of the vehicles you’re targeting. Once you have your list, get help from Car Analytics, check the cars you have on your list using the registration number and check the details. When you have prepared on what you need and what the market has to offer, it will be easy to filter out the jewels from the so called ”lemons”.

2. Valuation

Mileage and vehicle age can affect a car’s value, cars of the same make and model may have variations in price due to these differences. Our vehicle valuation reports can help you decide the market price for the vehicle you intend to buy.

3. Question the dealer

While contacting a dealer or an individual seller, it is best practice to get as much information possible about the used vehicle, always question if you feel any uncertainty during the purchase.
We have a variety of reports that can tend to your needs and also answer the questions that follow:
Here we have some Frequently Asked Questions regarding a used car screening:
·         Are there any outstanding finances left?
·         What is the count of Keepers history?
·         Has the car been set for scrapping?
·         What is the actual mileage without clocking?
·         Was the car involved in any accidents or police records?
·         Has the car undergone any brutal damage, will it be safe to drive again?

4. Inspect

Before taking your vehicle on a test drive, always ensure you inspect the conditions of the vehicle and check for any signs of chassis repair, flood damage, or rust that could potentially wreak havoc on you in the near future. Take help from a car mechanic for a detailed diagnosis.

5. Test drive

After giving the car a thorough inspection, it’s time to get the wheels turning. Drive the car in a large parking lot and on a road where you can drive the vehicle above 60 mph. To evaluate the used car, observe all features whilst driving:
 Steering-wheel behaviour
·         Brake timing and response
·         Windshield wiper degree of freedom
·         Air conditioning/heating
·         Power windows
·         Headlights, directional lights and taillights
Pay attention to the engine sounds to notice any erratic behaviour.
