Looking for a Used Car? Here’s What You Need to Know!

by Maruti Suzuki True Value Consultant

Every person, when they start earning, at some point plan on buying a car. After all, a car makes life so much easier and can be quite a status symbol as well. Plus, thanks to all the innovations in the automotive industry, today, many cars are equipped with the latest technologies, features, and are even available at quite affordable rates. However, most of the car buyers tend to purchase a second-hand car at first, either because of budgetary restraints or because they are new drivers and want to practice their skills on a used car first. In the years gone by, people would generally opt to purchase second-hand vehicles from friends or family who would sell their cars at feasible rates, but with many car manufacturers offering certified used cars, the second-hand market has undergone quite a change. To make your second-hand car purchase much more convenient, here are the three major factors that you should keep in mind – 


Condition of the Car

The first and foremost thing is to check the condition of the car. No doubt, you are buying a used car, but its condition must be good and worth the price. Go for a test drive, check all the major systems like the engine, transmission, cooling, wheels, and so on. This will help you to identify if the running condition of the used car is up to the mark or not.

Proper Documents

If you are looking for old cars for sale, then one very important thing that you should never forget is to check all the relevant papers of the car. if you check the proper documents of the car, the valid driving license of the owner, and spend some time on background research, you can make a more informed decision.

Accessories and Modifications

This is yet another factor that you must look for. Check if the car’s accessories are in place; ensure that the in-car entertainment systems, AC, cabin lights, and so on are working properly. This will allow you to check if any modifications or repairs are needed.

Why Choosing a Showroom is a Better Option?

Buying a used car from your family or friends may seem like the easier option but ensuring that the car is worth buying can become quite a hassle. However, nowadays, there are a lot of showrooms that offer second-hand cars in India at competitive rates. The showrooms are equipped with well-maintained used cars, accessories, and much more, giving you the ease of selecting one that best suits your requirements. Right from checking the condition of the car to its maintenance, everything is taken care of beforehand. Some showrooms also have user-oriented mobile applications that give you an easier way to check all the factors. Using such apps, you can –

  • Locate the nearest outlet
  • Check for the available car models
  • See their registration details
  • Book a test drive
  • Some of these apps also have a ‘sell car’ option for anyone who wants to sell their old car.
