For many reasons, those with bad credit prefer to purchase used cars over new ones. Saving money is the biggest motivation for this decision. Finding a good quality used car is only possible if a thorough vehicle inspection is made. At Complete Auto Loans, we understand the car industry better than most. Out blog is intended to give sound advice to our customers and anyone looking to make a good investment in a vehicle.
Used Cars Can Be Risky
Buying a used car offers the customer huge savings, but it can also be risky. No matter where you decide to buy your used car from, you should get a vehicle report for it. Even vehicle reports do not always paint a complete picture of the car’s history. If an accident is not reported or an insurance company not notified, you may never know about the vehicle’s history. Vehicle reports also do not tell new buyers if the car has a new engine, decomposing parts, or other condition issues. For these reasons, you should inspect the car before purchasing it. Here’s a list of top used cars to purchase.
The Inspection Process
The first part of your inspection should be to check the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). It should be located on a place in the car window. That number should match the title that goes to the car. A mismatch could mean a stolen car. Look in the car for any suspicious odors or damage. These could be signs of flood, accident, or theft. If there is any hint of something not being right, do not purchase the car.
For an inspection by a third party, have an Automotive Service Excellence Master look over the vehicle for you. These inspectors have many different certifications and are able to check many parts of the vehicle, from its engine to its transmission. If for any reason the dealer does not allow you to do these inspections, call off the sale.
