When you’re buying a used car, there are certain things that should be looked at closely and we’re going to help, so you don’t end up with a broken or damaged car at a high price.
The first checks you should make include mileage, MOT and Tax. Mileage will show you how far the car has been driven, and it can give you an insight into how much life the car has left. If a car has MOT and Tax then it can be a good buy, especially considering the fact that tax can cost more than £150 a year.
You should also check wither the car has any outstanding finance because if it does you will be liable to pay so a car history check is fundamental. Test drive the car and listen carefully to the engine; you will be able to tell if the car is driving as it should. Whilst you should check under the bonnet and see if anything los out of place or tampered with. If one part of the engine is dirty or clean it can show that that part has had some attention had and it can be a warning sign so get it checked.
