How to purchase a used car

These days, used cars sold with issues that we can not see at the first time until we drive it on the road, or It shows up after purchased it after a while. People have to know some tips about cars before they buy one. such as engines shape and the shape of the car.

The first step is to take a look at the engine, see if there is something installed to make it powerful for instance, turbochargers and air Induction. If the car has something like that and it’s added by the owner (not from the main factory), try to stay away from it because cars like that have been driven badly, it might be in a race or an accident.


The second step, look at the shape of the car from outside, look if there are things missing like nails. Or something wrong such as, lean down from the front side or the back. In this case, the car had an accident and the chassis damaged, once the chassis damaged the car won’t lease for a long time without troubles because cars built with certain format otherwise it will cost a lot to keep it in shape.


The third step, go inside the car and smell it, if there is any septic smell, if so that is mean the car had been flooded. It might be a good car, but usually, flooded cars have electrical problems like a computer issue. Look also at the driver seat see if the seat has been used too much if it so that is mean the car had not the original mileage ( just in case it’s had low miles)

    The most time that I wish to have a huge luck is when I want to buy a used car. It’s hard to find a good one especially if the sellers are not trustworthy.
