How to Get Used Cars for Sale by Owner Online

By Rudy Gevorgyan Subscribe to RSS | March 12th 2012 | Views:

Uncertainty in the economy as well as high gas prices and shortages in small car inventory has made the “Used Cars for Sale” market to rise over the last couple of years. Buying a Used Car does make sense in these days as they come as cheap cars. Today we have franchise dealerships, independent dealerships and private parties from where a Used Car can be bought.

But before you start looking for a cheap used car, you need to consider a few pointers mentioned below :

First and foremost: Never test drive a used car before inspecting it. You could end up finding a mechanical problem that you would surely not want to find out at 85 mph on a highway.

Check Oil level. Also check and see if it looks dirty or clean. This should give you a very clear picture about the current condition of the used car.

If the car for sale has been parked in the same spot for some time, check underneath to see if there are any leaks.

If the car is for sale by owner, ask to see the latest repair receipts. You can have a peak of the vehicles history this way.

If the car for sale is of the newer generations, check for the light indicators like: Engine Light, ABS light, Air bag lights (if any), etc.

Apart from the Oil level mentioned above, it is also important to check the other fluid levels like: Coolant levels, Transmission fluid (if automatic transmission), Break Oil, etc. The colors of these fluids also give you an indication of the vehicle conditions.

Check for Rust around the headlamp, bottom of the doors, around gas cap, etc. Basically areas which are difficult to reach.

One of the most important checks to be done before you actually test drive a used car is to check for moisture in the exhaust system. Just place your finger in the tail pipe and if you find it moist, it indicates serious problems.

so armed with the above check list, feel free and secured to have go, on that dream beauty. With all of the above checks done, you can be assured that if you like the used cars for sale after the test drive you can blindfold yourself and buy it.

Oh and one more tip: the last one: When you take the vehicle for the test drive, go easy on the pedals… You don’t want to be the one who caused a mechanical problem and have to end up buying the cars by owner even if you don’t like it.
