Finding the right used car for your driving needs can be a challenge with so many choices available in the market. Hence, it is important that you keep in mind the car features and sale factors that make up a good buy. Read these slides for some insights that will make your purchase of a second hand car a breeze.
If you're looking at buying a used car, you're going to want to know some things to look
out for in order to assess potential damage. All used cars have some form of wear and
tear. However, knowing a pricing range for repairs to damage may help in your
negotiations. Be sure to review all of the panels of the vehicle including panel and door
dents as these can be upwards of $80 per dent to repair.
Bumper scuffs, scrapes, dents and cracks can range anywhere from $250 up to $450 or
more depending on the visible and hidden damage. Chips and scratches, which may
have actually exposed the metal have the potential to cause rust and can range from
$100 upwards. Odd colouring or texture may indicate that a previous incident has been
repaired. Although not an immediate cost, it would likely make a new repair more time-
consuming and expensive if the older repair work needed to be removed.
