A lot of times the dashboard is the first thing you notice when you hop into a vehicle to check everything out, but do you really <i>look</i> at it? Make sure to glance over everything on the dash, checking for cracks or stains or anything that doesn’t look right. Some of it might just be cosmetic things that you’re willing to overlook, but it could just as easily be something more serious, like a broken air vent or a stuck gauge.

Audio System & Speakers

Unless you plan on never listening to anything but the sounds of wind and traffic, which sounds pretty terrible, you’ll also want to make sure the audio system and speakers work. Don’t crank the volume up to max like kids in a Best Buy, but make sure to turn it up to a comfortable volume and see if the speakers are damage and make sure the system works the way it should.

Buttons & Switches

But after that, you do get to act like a kid in a Best Buy, as you should be touching just about every button and switch available to make sure that they work. It would be pretty awful to purchase a car only to realize that the cruise control you were promised can’t be set because the button doesn’t work, or that you can’t roll down the back-left window, etc.

Once you’ve checked all of these things, you should be in a pretty good spot. But there are still plenty of other things you could check, so don’t cut yourself off after checking these 12. And we might be back in the coming weeks with more hot tips for you, so remember to check back.

    I don’t think the info you have shared here is sufficient for an individual to get a good score. Because from my opinion buying an used car is little bit more intimidating than that of buying a new car. It is also very crucial to make a safe purchase as like a new one. Hence, we are bound to worry a bit more in this case. In fact, as there are so many second hand car dealers in the market, it is our responsibility to find the right one and it can be a tough task. Moreover, we need to consider so many things like- purchase time, features, price quotes etc, at the time of shopping, by which we can find the right used car within our budget.

    Buying a used car is much more complicated process than buying a new car. We have to remember some tips while shopping for a used car. First we have to fix our budget & then we have to search for cars matching that budget by doing some research on the internet. We should go for a test drive to know about the defects in the car. We must ask for vehicle history report of the car to know about it’s past servicing details. We should also make a thorough inspection of the car by taking the help of a certified mechanic.

    Before buying a used car, we should have a goal and budget in our mind. Then we have to search for cars matching that budget. We should search for cars basing on our lifestyle and requirement. We should check the documents of the car such as registration paper, vehicle safety report or history report etc. We should take the car for a test drive to know whether all it’s components are working well or not. We should take with us a trusted car expert who will provide us insights into the car.
