The average ownership period of a car is decreasing in India. This means more and more people are selling their used cars within a shorter time period. This has also given buyers a lot of options to buy a used car in Bangalore.
If you are one of those people who are looking to buy a pre-used car, here are 4 tips to help you.
- Always Get the Car Inspected
If you are looking to buy the used car from a dealership then they would give you an inspection report of the car. Take a close look at it and if possible get a copy of it. You should then get your own inspection done for the exteriors, interiors, and working condition of the car.
- Check the Car’s Maintenance History
A well maintained car will have better working condition. So you should always check the maintenance history of a car. Ask for the service receipts of the car. This will give you an idea as to how frequently it has been serviced.
- Check for the Car’s Documentation
You should also check for the relevant documentation of the car. Make sure that the car’s owner is the rightful owner and has the right to sell. Ensure that the car’s RC book and insurance papers are all in place. Also try to verify if the premium for all the insurance policies has been paid or not.
- Take a Test Drive
Just like you do for a new car, take a test drive of the used car that you intend to buy. The test drive will give you a better understanding of the condition of the car. You can judge how the car holds on to the road and how the gear box works.
