There are many rules of buying used cars – be prepared for the fact that buyers know them like the back of their hand. Here are some actual examples:



“Check if there is no leakage in engine, then partially wash motor compartment. Why partially? There is a golden rule: ideally clean engine in 90% of cases will raise the suspicions, because the buyer knows that he is watching at a used car.”

The same applies to replacement parts: a large number of hoses, caps and bolts will also provoke a question: “How many repairs has seen this car?!


Noticed slight traces of oil on the conngine parts? It’s okay, don’t even think to wipe them – the buyer have to be sure that there is no serious oil leakage.

 “Take out and clean the plugs, reduce the gaps – this will ensure a smooth work of an engine.”

Be sure to fix the squeaks of belts.

Check the chassis, pressure, and the tires. You can replace disks if you want. Check cardan joints, actuators, shock absorbers, brake pads, hub bearings, fix backlashes. You can also buy accessories you need and change them.



Be sure to check the headlights, beeps, the light in the cabin, dashboard gauges, alarms.


Final phase – checking car on the go

Check how fast engine starts, check the brakes, listen to the sounds. It is important to imagine yourself to be a buyer and be as biased as you can! Here you can take the help of a friend, and to invite him for a “short trip” – his impressions will be more objective than yours.

I love to always be in the epicenter of the events, and then tell the world about it in the most diverse forms.I believe that many rules are created in order to break them in an attempt to create something new.Many of us sometimes need to stop for a moment, perhaps lose something in order to rethink our existence and understand in which direction we need to move.In addition to blogging, I am fond of music composing, traveling, self-studying and meditation. I sincerely believe that if you go your own way and listen to your inner voice, you will definitely come where you were going!
