Models To buy a model with good price / quality ratio, off the beaten track.The most requested cars are the most expensive occasion.Some models of foreign brands did not have much wind in its sails can be safe values.Similarly, the 3-door models are rated less than 5 doors, breaks unless minivans, cars less safe than a hatchback.
Often, models disappear from the manufacturer’s catalog undergo a greater discount thereby becoming a good choice occasion.
Here is a list of important points for buying your used car.I suggest you make an appointment with the buyer during the day in the light of day so you have a better visual on the car (Scratch, shock, oil leakage,) Also do not hesitate to ask more than question about the life of the car (Repair (s) + Invoice (s) + Accident (s) etc.)
1 Pay attention to the exhaust or pierced deeply oxidized.
2 Check if there is no oil leak on the rear axle.
3 Check if there is no perceptible play in the joints of transmission (car lift).
4 Oil leak at the crankcase.
5 Check if the dampers do not lose their oil.
Leave the lights on, pull out the choke (if there is one) and rotate the starter.If the battery is in good condition, it must be able to put the engine running while the headlights are on.If the engine is cold to start soon is that the battery is low or the carburetor or the ignition is faulty.When the engine starts, verify that the charging of the battery and the oil pressure is good off both at once.Be on the lookout for any suspicious noise before the oil pressure is established: a knock, a rattling deaf can report that the bearings are worn.If the dashboard has an oil pressure gauge, it must have at least 3 or 4 kg/cm2 cold.Allow the engine to warm gradually pushing the starter.In case the vehicle is equipped with an automatic choke, it must disengage gradually without driver intervention (except some accelerations).
While the engine is warming up, get out of the car and listen carefully to the sound of the exhaust.If you hear a blast in the car, the cause is a leak in the exhaust system, it will be repaired.S for sure, just clog up the exhaust port.The breath must grow.Ask your friend to give some accelerations while you watch the exhaust port.The release of a light blue smoke is normal the first time while the engine burns oil vapors accumulated in the intake manifold during idle.But if the blue smoke persists, it is a bad sign the engine consumes oil and needs a refurbishment.
Lift the hood and listen to the engine.It should be relatively quiet.A slight rattle from the top of the engine is probably produced by the distribution is normal for an engine with valves operated by rocker arms, but the distribution of an engine camshaft head should be silent.More pronounced knocking from the bottom of the engine is much more disturbing: it is a sign that the bearings are badly worn.Transmission of some FWD models-dre is heard a rattling at idle acute.This noise is not alarming ceases as soon as the engine takes the system.Otherwise, it is a heavy bill in perspective.
