What To Look For When Buying a Used Car
A lot of things! You can’t trust a used car since you don’t know about its history yet; what it’s been through, how it’s driven and what’s coming up next. As a thumb of rule, you should inspect your used car on the following parameters to ensure you are not at the losing end of the deal.
Turn on the ignition and before you crank the engine, see if all dashboard lights come on. This is an indication that all the warning lights are working and will come on when they should be to alert you to a fault. Now, crank the engine. If any of the lights stays on, there’s an issue you need to look into.
The worst one is the check engine light, followed by ABS, EPS and battery light.
Now, pop the hood. It’s time to examine the heart of the car. Even if the engine is running and you are able to drive the car for a couple of miles without any problem, it doesn’t mean it will continue to drive like that. There could be a serious issue bubbling under the surface, only to burst out later.
The first thing you want to do is to check for head gasket leaks. Open the radiator cap and crank the engine. If the coolant spills out, there’s a problem. Consider running away with your money.
