Buying a used car can be a scary experience for anyone. With stories of people getting stranded alongside of the highway, cars breaking down in the heat, overpaying thousands of dollars, it’s easy to see why. The next time you head to the used car lot, be sure you take a look at these 10 things to check when buying a used car. Doing so ahead of time will save you a lot of heartache and trouble.
1. Bumper – If either of the car bumpers are not straight or appear to be coming off, that is a red flag that the car could have been in an accident.
2. Fenders and frame – Make sure that the fender of the car lines up with the rest of the body. Again, if it doesn’t, it is an indicator that the vehicle has been in some sort of collision.
3. Brakes – When you test drive your potential new car, be sure that the breaks not only stop well, but that they aren’t making any squealing or rubbing sounds. If so, you may need to do work on them after your purchase.
