Tips For Buy a Used Car in Pakistan
First of all, you should decide the brand and model of the car based on your budget, the size of your family, and other basic requirements. You should have to buy a vehicle which can fulfill your requirements.
Verify Car Documents and owner CNIC:
Check the registration copy of the vehicle physically and make sure that it has not been tampered with or changed in any way. The owner information should be checked like the CINIC and transfer letter. Match the engine, and chassis number and ask for the original computerized number plate.
After the verification of all documents, you should check the body condition of the car. The interior and exterior should be clear and no scratches or bad color effects are in the car.
If the condition of the car is like that you want then you should take a driving test for the performance of the car. By the test drive, you will know the condition of the engine. Start the car and check the color of the smoke. The blue color indicates that the engine is burning oil, while black smoke shows excessive fuel consumption. Gears and steering performance should also be checked.
You should sort out the places where used cars are sold and big markets are ideal to buy a used car. Nowadays online buying is also increasing. You should also buy this car which is famous in the market. This type of car has no problem with resale.
Some More Tips
