Here are tips on how to buy a second hand car and not regret for buying one:
1. First things first, contact the credit union in which you are a member of and then ask for the latest interest rate. Or you can go online and submit a loan application. Whichever is possible for you. But if you are planning to buy the second hand car in cash then much better. Still, there are many considerations to think even if you are buying the second hand car in cash.
2. Know what type, model, and make of vehicle you want. Once you’ve made your decision as to what kind of vehicle you would want to own, try doing a little research about the car that you are considering to buy. Find out any common mechanical problems, engine problems. You can do this by joining forums online or by reading magazines about cars.
3. Once you’ve already finalized the type of vehicle that you are interested in buying, the next step that you need to do into know how much is the current value of the car that you are interested. Also, check out online for the rates of second hand cars with the same model or similar models to the one that you want.
4. Once you’ve found your dream car ask for the original registration documentation. This includes the following important documents and information: the MOT certificate (if more than 3 years old), Chassis number – sometimes called the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), Registration address, Service records etc.
