Funds for a new car is not enough, andI do not really want to buy a second-hand car - a familiar situation, is not it?

Instead, you will be offered a beautiful legend that the car has just arrived from abroad. So how to buy a used car, so as not to bite on the bait of negligent sellers?
Buy a second-hand foreign car, it turns out, not soit's so simple, so do it better with the appropriate expert. Stock up with patience, a flashlight, a small mirror and a magnet - all these things will be needed to verify the seller's words and assess the current state of the car.
Inspection can begin with the body, namely,it was repainted or not. The fact of repainting the car shows that the car either went to the road accident, then it was restored, or rotted in places. The machine should be thoroughly washed, without stickers and stripes (hang them more often in order to hide defects). Compare the shades of paint under rubber seals with a common color - the differences will also indicate a repainting.
Next - the engine. It should be clean, free of oil and dust. Even the most minor smudges that the seller can write off as "badly washed" should be alarming. The oil on the dipstick should show the upper level, there should be no visible impurities or foreign impurities. To inspect hard-to-reach places, use a flashlight and a mirror.
Before you buy a used car,be sure to check it on the go. First of all, start the engine. It should happen immediately, regardless of whether it is heated earlier or not.
