Tyres The rubber on yourtyres may not be the first thing you think of when buying a car, but remember, they are the only thing connecting you to the road. If the tyres are dose to balding, you could be left with abill from anywhere between £200 and £600 for a new set of boots. Aside from looking bad, bald tyres are a safety risk and can put you and your family in danger should the worst happen. RAE CHAMER 2. Brakes Like the aforementioned tyres, brakes are very important, and they need to be in good working order. Test drive the car and di a fewemergency stops to ensure that the brakes not only stop the car, but do so in a confident and true manner. If the car has ABS, check it works! The wheels shouldn't lock up under hard braking, if they do then the ABS isn't working. PUSCD SACK ADAUSTER BAKE CAM CAM ROLLER ALE tRAE SHOE BRAKE DRUM RETURN PRNG 3. Paintwork Paint may be boring, it may not be very interesting, but it is a massive part of your car, and if you take any pride in it, you'll want it to be in good condition. Never buy a car in the rain or in the dark, as any paint issues or rust won't be easily visible. Things like small scratches are often easily fixed, but if you have dings and bumps, then you might want to consider asking for money off. 4. Check Service History Service histories are a vital part of buying used car. Without them, your 64,000 mile bargain could actually tum out to be a 120,000 mile disaster, as with a proper service history you can check just how often the car has been serviced and the mileage on each date, so you know it hasn't been dlocked! 5. Tested & Taxed? It sounds daft, but if you buy a used car without it being tested or taxed, do you really know what you're getting? Buying a car you don't know without an MOT is a dangerous business, as you could be left with one hell of a bill for repairs. Tax, especially in today's dimate, is very expensive, so try and haggle your way to at least six months in the deal. 6. Clutch All cars go through periods of needing new parts, but if the dutch is about to go, that's one expense you really don't need. Adutch can be particularly expensive, so make sure you test that it isn't sliping or that it doesn't feel too hard to push down. 7. Dip The Oil The engine is the power-plant that will keep your car going; it's the only thing that gives you power, so it needs to be respected. Get under the bonnet and check the oil levels for yourself. If you've never done it before, all you need to do is get a rag, find the dipstick, lift it out of the engine, wipe clean, dip it back in and lift out once more and check that the oil level is somewhere between minimum and maximum. If it's not, you need to ask yourself why. 8. Exhaust Blowing Press the throttle, does it sound right? The exhaust note should sound, if it's a standard car without modification, pure and relatively docile. If it sounds like someone's fitted an induction kit on it, you've either got a blowing exhaust or performance modification under the bonnet. Price 9. Price Chedker Being naive about the price of the car you're looking at can be ashocking move, as the dealer will jump on it. Do your research beforehand by using either one of the several text check services that are available or by visiting parkers.co.uk, who will give you a valuation for your vehidle. Check 10. Insurance Group This applies more to performance-orientated cars, as you can be serisouly stung by the insurance costs if you've not checked beforehand. Make sure that the car yoư're buying is insurable for your budget. Cars like the Honda Civic Type Rare group 17 insurance, and will subsequently cost a fair chunk to cover. INSURANCE Mirrors Tailgates Trunk Lids Hoods Header Nose Panels 11. Wear & Tear Tail Do the interior plastics and seats match with the mileage? If the car has only done 20,000 miles, you shouldn't really be seeing signs of wear and tear on the seats or plastics on the dashboard, so bare this in mind when looking at the vehicde.
