  • History
    Looking the history of the cars is very important like
  • Odometer reading is one of the aspects of how long the Car is in use

  • Service history will tell you the condition of the car. If the car has been company serviced the service book will support it.

  • Prefer to choose a single ownership vehicle and try to avoid vehicle which has 2 or more owners as different drivers result in the low performance and fuel efficiency.

  • Verify the documents of the car for ownership, re-registered vehicles, and any accidents history.

  • One way of ensuring there is no major accident history is to verify insurance history for any claims used.

  • Physical Evaluation
    Car should be checked thoroughly inside out
  • Make sure that the vehicle is parked in well lit and level ground.

  • Carefully check the paint job of the car, look for any dent rest spots or scratches, Run your finger along the edges of the joints between the panels.

  • Check the trunk of the car make sure that there are no leaks which leads to rust, Wear inside the trunk shows the rough usage to the car.

  • Check tires, uneven tyre wear shows the bad alignment may be result of worn steering /suspension components.

  • Never buy a frame damaged car. Check for the welds inside the door jambs (result of a crash).

  • Open the hood look thoroughly, check for coolant leaks because it will result in changing the radiator. Check for oil burn smell .Check under the body for any leaks in engine and transmission. Check for the engine oil level, if the oil level is low or thick both will create problems. Check for any performance modification this could means that car is used for racing or abused.

  • Start the engine, difficulty in staring could be of battery .Look for any blue smoke means worn out engine.

  • Test drive
  • If you are satisfied with car of your choice then drive the vehicle, never choose a smooth road, potholes and uneven roads will show the true condition of the car. Any squeals, pulling to side from the suspension could results in suspension repair.Also try doing a bounce test, just push the front of the vehicle and also from the back if the car bounces 2-3 times even after release.
