Ana sebenarnya dah teringin sesangat nak memiliki sebuah kereta...yelah..kan ana bekerja.Takkan ana nak merempit sampai tua. Teringat masa zaman sekolah dulu..ana berangan nak beli kereta GTI. Ana ada simpan lagi setem bergambar kereta GTI. Sekarang bila difikir-fikir semula...tak sesuai untuk ana yang sudah berkeluarga. GTI atau Satria Neo ade 2pintu sahaja. Menyusahkan...feel uncomfortable. Ana rasa macam men'sardin'kan orang dalam GTI...sesak!!So...ana bercita-cita pula mahu memiliki Exora atau Avanza. Difikir dua kali sesuailah dengan ana yang berkeluarga...tapi....ana pergi kerja drive sorang-sorang. Huh!!buang minyak..Tak baik tau membazir...hehehe!!!!
Sekarang, ana fikir sama ada ana nak beli Viva, MyVI, Persona, Vios atau Honda City. Tapi, pada fikiran ana lah...Honda City tu ana akan beli after up to 5years bekerja. Lagi pun ana ni sebenarnya belum benar-benar expert memandu kereta. Itu yang sebenarnya ana fikirkan... Then, better ana beli kereta second hand..sama ada Kelisa atau Kancil sahaja. Huahuaha!! Itu kesudahannya.....
Ahah!! Itu pasal ana tengah study tips membeli kereta terpakai. Inilah serba sedikit yang ana dapat...
- Make a financial plan and stick to it. The financial plan should factor in the price of insurance, fuel, MOT, road tax and servicing.
- Decide how you are going to pay for the car an individual loan is one choice for this type of buy. It may be best to figure out the economics before going any additional distance, else you may be forced to change your financial plan.
- Shop around browse the Internet to get suggestions of the types of car and what the existing prices are. Visit car websites like UnoCarDealers that focus on used car sales. There are in addition certified used car dealers who offer more privileges and safeguards than with buying confidentially. Take a look around a selection of these and be prepared to face hardsell tactics!
- Inspect cars in bright light faults may get hidden in dim light. Taking along a friend (preferably a mechanic), may be a good idea. They may notice what you ignore.
- Inspect the car at the sellers house rather than letting them drive it to you. You get an idea where the car is coming from.
- Verify all the papers carefully this could save you any future headaches. Inspect in the log book (V5) and ensure the name matches that of the seller (for private sales). Make sure to get the service history and records, MOT certificate (for vehicles over 3yrs old) and receipts for repairs or maintenance.
- Make sure all the dates add up/make sense.
- Organize an independent inspection this often pays for itself as it can raise any potentially serious or costly problems. The RAC and Green Flag offer these, as do many other motoring organizations.
- Get an HPI check this is very valuable as it identifies any stolen, written off or cloned vehicles.
- Get a test drive this should be at least 20 minutes over a selection of dissimilar roads (highways, and city roads). It allows you to make a decision if the car is comfortable and whether it grips well. Pay attention to any bumps, rattles or squeaks that could indicate trouble.
- Be prepared to bargain, and do not buy instantaneously. It is worth mentioning that you have been looking around and are conscious of cost.
