Buying a used car – Inspect exterior and interior (Arabic)


Buying a used car –
Inspect exterior and interior Take a slow walk around the vehicle, looking for any colour differences
between panels and making sure all the gaps are even. Look for dents and general wear and tear. Uneven gaps between panels may indicate that the vehicle had been
involved in an accident and could require extensive repairs. Bring this to the attention of your qualified mechanic. Have a closer look at the vehicle. Overspray on parts of the vehicle that shouldn’t be painted
such as: door rubbers and plastic trim could again indicate that the vehicle had been repaired and there
may be more serious defects that are not immediately obvious. Most buyers are able to identify defects quite easily; however
they usually discover them after taking delivery of the vehicle. To avoid this problem, imagine you’ve just purchased the vehicle
and you’re at home going through the vehicle and all its functions. In other words, test everything before you agree to buy. Check if the vehicle comes with a spare tyre, jack and tools. You would not want to discover that the spare tyre and or tools
are missing when on the side of the road with a flat tyre. Look under mats and the spare wheel for water or rust. This could indicate a leak that may be related to poor previous repairs. This can also jeopardise the structure of the vehicle. Bring this to the attention of your qualified mechanic. If possible, lift seat covers, looking for concealed damage. Also check under floor mats for any damage to carpets. Before you buy, NSW Fair Trading recommends
the vehicle be inspected by a qualified licensed mechanic. Language assistance 13 14 50
