Factors to Consider When Buying a Used Car
Most people buy a second-hand car, as you get more for your money, thanks to the massive depreciation of a new vehicle from day one. Buying a used car, however, does have an element of risk attached, as you can never be really sure that the vehicle is what the seller claims it to be. If you are looking to buy a second-hand vehicle, here are some important factors to consider.
- The Vehicle History– If, for example, a used car has a full service history, then you can be sure that it has been well-maintained. All the service information should be recorded in the rear section of the owner’s manual, with the garage’s stamp to verify that they did the work. A car without a service history could be in need of work, but you won’t know that until after you make the purchase.
- Buy from a Reputable Used Car Dealer – You are not advised to buy a used car from a private seller, as there will be no warranty, and with great value used cars in Exeter from an established source, you can go ahead with some confidence, knowing you at least have some form of warranty.
- Consider the Type of Car Carefully– When buying a second-hand car, make sure it is suitable for what you have in mind. A fast sports car might be a joy to drive, but is it practical?
If you are ready to purchase a used car, contact your local second-hand car dealer and see what he can do for you.
